Do We Really Need the Fall?
This article was originally published as a part of the series titled “Just A Thought”
The world hates the idea of the Fall, yet we organize our entire lives around the Fall every day….
• “What does he really want?”
• “He played me.”
• “He’s going to let me down.”
The world wants us to think that man is not so bad—that man will be able to make things right. Christianity claims we will see what we see—a fallen world in need of redemption.
Pascal said, “The Fall is an offense to human reason, yet, once accepted, it makes perfect sense of the human condition.”
It’s easy to overlook the obvious.
