The Bible teaches that the fundamental problem in our world is human sinfulness. Sin affects not only our own personal lives, but the lives of others, including the harmful consequences on future generations. Ultimately, creation itself is subject to the pain and suffering resultant of human sinfulness. As creator and sustainer of our entire universe, sin is also an offense against God himself. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the solution for human sinfulness, and the Holy Spirit was given to eradicate sin from our lives.
