God's Solution to the Sin Problem

Sin stands in the way of having the satisfying relationship with God that He meant for you to have. The Bible uses several words to describe what has broken off our relationship with God. Sometimes, for example, the Bible talks about "transgressions". Those are the times when we overstep God's moral boundaries and, as it were, put our foot into His moral "no trespassing" zones. The Bible tells us that the "transgression" of our first parents Adam and Eve, while in the Garden of Eden, has had a devastation effect on all their offspring. "Through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men ..." (Romans 5:18). ...God has removed the barrier caused by our sin... ...by placing the guilt for sin on His Son, Jesus Christ. Not only is God holy, but He's also merciful. Out of pure love and mercy, because of our helpless situation, God has sent His own Son Jesus to be born into the human race -- the only Member of the human race that has never sinned -- so that He might take the guilt of our sins on Himself and pay the "death penalty" for us on the cross as the second "Adam". His death sets us free from our debt, and makes it possible for us to have a satisfying relationship with His Father. Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." http://www.bethanybible.org/4most.htm
