Beginning with the Bad News: Man’s Chief Problem is Sin Against God

September 16, 2015 by SLIMJIM

Storm Wikipedia

In order to understand Christ as our Savior, we must first understand the biblical teachings concerning the lostness of man.  Man’s chief problem is offending a good God.  The Bible teaches us all of humanity has sinned against God (Romans 3:23) with sin being behavior and thoughts that go against God’s Law or lawlessness (1 John 3:4).  Any attempt by man’s own effort towards “righteous deeds are like a filthy garment” (Isaiah 64:6).  Proverbs 13:15 and 13:21 teaches us that sins have terrible consequences even on this side of eternity, but we must not forget the biggest problem is that fallen humanity is guilty in their sin against God.   One day Jesus will call sinners to give an account of their lives since God the Father has “given all judgment to the Son” (John 5:22 cf. John 5:27).

The consequences of man’s lostness after death in their sins are devastating:  Those who are lost and whose name is not written in the book of life will appear on Judgement Day before Christ’s great white throne and be thrown into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:15).  Here too we see Jesus’ involvement as a judge since Matthew 13:41-42 indicates there is a place of torment in which Jesus as the Son of Man will commission his angels to throw the lost into “that place” where “there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
