How did we create such a mess?

How did we create such a mess?

Today we continued our series “From Beginning to End”, a series exploring four mega-questions about the human species:

  1. Where did we come from?
  2. How did we create such a mess?
  3. Where is God in all this mess?
  4. Where are we going?

This message is on the second of those questions.

We find the answer to that question in Genesis 3. After Adam and Eve took a bite of the forbidden fruit in the middle of the garden, Genesis 3:7 says, “At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness”. The world was made a mess in that moment. It was the moment sin entered the world because we chose against God.

To summarize Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in the moments when we are faced with a choice to choose God or our own fleshly desires, it’s not that we act against God because we want to scorn him, we simply forget about him. In those moments it’s as if we all become little Atheists. And it’s in those moments, that we can make a mess of things.

Thanks for taking some time to listen! I’d love for you to let me know what you think or share some thoughts of your own on social media by using #fromB2E @roccgoshen!
