The problem with sin

In times of trouble people often ask for answers, they question everything trying to make sense of it all. One of the main stumbling blocks preventing people from believing in God is their human reasoning which says that if there was a God then why does he allow suffering, pain and evil? Some may give glib replies in their endeavour to persuade people to place their faith in God but the truth is first of all He exists. We are His workmanship and we have been given free will. God tells us what is right and what is wrong but we don’t listen and the result is the sinful world in which we live. Because we are unable to change and be sinless we separate ourselves from Him but He did make it possible for our sins to be wiped away. He sent Jesus to be the sacrifice for our sins and by believing in him we can be saved, we will be saved. In the meantime we still have to remain in this sinful world and the suffering that goes with it….
