New to God
The PROBLEM...SIN separates us from God!
Although God created us in His own image, He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and a freedom of choice. We choose to disobey God and go our own willful way, which is sin. Sin separates us from God. The Bible says...
"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard." Romans 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23
