Most people realize there is more between heaven and earth, but many people have never had a personal experience with God. The reason for this is that there is a problem between us and God. That problem is in our thinking and acting. As humans we are able to do many good things, but when you look at all the misery in the world, you see that we as humans are not able to live in harmony with people around us. We see that on a big scale, but also in our own lives. Even in doing good things, we often seek our own happiness. This problem creates a distance between people, but also between man and his Maker, God.
A good talk often solves the problem, at least when the problem is not too big. In case of a crime, for instance, it is not so easy. The victim or the family of the victim is not satisfied by a ‘sorry’ of the guilty one. Even when you are fair, the least you want is that somebody gets the punishment he deserves. Now, how big is our problem towards God? Is ‘sorry God’ good enough, or does it take more?
When God created the world, all was well. Man got responsibility for the world. As long as man was connected to God, there would be no death and man would live with God forever. Now there is much suffering in this world. God holds us personally responsible for our own mistakes, but also collectively for all misery in the world, because we are no different than other people and evil seems to have crept into our DNA. God calls this sin and He deals with this as we do with a crime. God is not satisfied with only ‘sorry’. The punishment that God accepts is that we die and are in eternity without Him. Result would be that no man would be left. Is there an alternative solution?
