The Origin of Evil

Post by Jarhead on Thu May 29 2014, 07:58

Jack had a good Question of the Week today ~ I found one statement very profound:

Shortly after the Creation, Satan introduced this evil into the world by convincing Adam and Eve to break the only rule God had given them. This seemingly minor act of rebellion caused all of mankind’s potential for evil to be greatly magnified and made rebellion man’s natural state. Paul called it our sin nature and it turned the Creation upside down.

Where Satan had been made as the model of perfection with the potential for choosing evil, mankind would hereafter be predisposed toward evil with the potential for choosing to be made perfect.

(In other words, Satan had to choose evil. We have to choose good.)
And what’s more Satan no longer had to personally see to every act of evil. By orchestrating that one act of disobedience he had set mankind on a downward spiral that soon resulted in a state where every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time (Genesis 6:5).

Thanks for posting & sharing your thoughts JH.
Connected to the Angelic Conflict which we have discussed on other threads here. I copied this article & several related posts of Jack Kelley's. Profound stuff.
