Step Two
The Problem: Our Separation


God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and a freedom of choice. 
We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God. 

The Bible says... 

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 

Our Attempts to Reach God 

People have tried in many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God... 

The Bible says... 

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 14:12 

"But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." Isaiah 59:2 

No bridge reaches God...except one.
