Speaker: Lukus Counterman - It should be clear that our world has a problem. One need only turn on the news for a few moments or scan the headlines to see that things are not as we know they should be. Wars, brutality, violence, rape, murder, scandal, immorality, sickness, suffering and death are just some of the many problems our world faces.
However, the world is not alone. Things are not as they ought to be on the worldwide scene because they are not as they should be on the personal level. No doubt all of us have felt the pain of damaged or broken relationships, the emptiness of wrong pursuits, and the sting of a guilty conscience.
What is the world’s problem? More to the point, what is our problem?
God’s answer to these questions is clear: sinful hearts.
