Root of Sin

By   •   August 24   •   Topics:

The basic problem facing our world is not just social inequity, or lack of education, or even physical hunger. We are finding that highly educated and well-fed people have greeds, hates, passions, and lusts that are not eliminated by education. The root of sin in each of our hearts is extremely deep, and this is the basic cause of the world’s problems; only the fire of the Lord can burn it out. This is precisely what Christ came to do. He didn’t come to treat symptoms. He came to get at the very heart of man’s disease.

What exactly is sin? Learn more.

Prayer for the day

Father, root out the sin in my life—the shortcomings that are there—and fill me with Your love, so I may fight against the evil present in the world today.

    That you for teaching all of mankind to turn toward God, our Heavenly Father. We need more articles about the Word of God, on a daily basis. Thank you for being a servant of God to the people!

    I personally love your motivational and advisory speeches. May God bless you and please pray for me. I lost my very young wife, 27 years old, under very unclear circumstances. I now have a daughter who is two-years-old. I’m raising her on my own. Need all the help I can get, from you and from God. Thank you.

    Amen. We all need to keep prayer in our heart and love one another just as God loves us. He created all of His children in His image.
