S10 Q&A about The Fall

Questions and Answers about the Fall of Man

So here are some of your questions and comments.

Q: If God is omnipotent and omniscient, why would he create the devil, knowing he is going to rebel against god

Answer: He created Lucifer, his most beautiful angel, and all his angels with the power to choose. Lucifer chose to start a mutiny against God and become all things evil, bringing one-third of the angels with him. God also gave Man this same power to choose. He did this otherwise he would be going against his Nature to be fair and loving.

Q: Why would he create a hell to burn people in?

Answer:  He did not create hell for people. He created it for Satan and his followers. Satan’s MOTIVE is this:  Ok So I am going to hell? Well I’m going to take everything (that God loves and made) down with me. So Man became Satan’s follower, and so, by association, we and the whole world are destined to be thrown into hell too.

WHY? Because of His nature as Righteous, God cannot have anything to do with anything that has Satan’s life, Sin.

Deuteronomy 32:4   The Rock — perfect is His work, For all His ways are justice: A God of faithfulness and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.

It’s a part of Him to be totally righteous. He would not be the All Righteous if He allowed Himself to tolerate Satan in all his evil. And He would not be a Just God if he could simply forgive and excuse Sin without judging it.

And here’s a question that many people are asking:  How can God be so cruel to send me to hell? All I do is tell lies, that’s all. It’s a little sin..

Romans 6:23 “The wages of Sin is Death.”

 

This is talking about the Sin (capital S), the Life of Satan, not the sins we commit.  Because we have the Sin, the Life of Satan, God’s justice requires that this Life of Satan in us has to be judged.

Q: What about our sins we commit, as a result of Sin in us?

When we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ (God’s Salvation), Sin is gone, our sins wiped out. When God in heaven looks at us, He doesn’t see a Life of Sin, but the Life of Jesus Christ, because we have been replaced by Jesus Christ His Salvation.

The Lord forgives ALL our sins, past, present, and future. They are not the issue here. When Christ died on the Cross, He became SIN, SIN was crucified. This is a major point here. And I will repeat. SIN was crucified, and has been judged– it is no longer an issue to GOD.

Isaiah 1:18.  “Come now, let us settle the matter, says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”

There is no sin too great for God to forgive.

Titus 2:14, “Who gave Himself for us to redeem us from EVERY lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession,”

QUESTION: Then if all sins have been forgiven, then why are people still going to hell?

Because the issue is not SIN anymore, but BELIEF IN JESUS CHRIST who has HIMSELF removed the issue of SIN.

Mark 3:28-29 “Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”—

Matthew 12:31-32 “Therefore I say to you, any sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven people, but blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven….Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”

The sin against the Spirit occur during moments (and there will be many many moments for every person in the world) when the Holy Spirit reveals the truth of Salvation to a person, and that person pays no heed.

Q: How can the entire worlds problems known today, be a result of Adam and Eve disobeying God and eating an apple?

( not an apple– but the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil)

Answer: because of Point 2 here. Sin has entered into Man, and Man and Satan are in cahoots. See the verse again (Satan tries to tempt Jesus)

Luke 4:5-7  And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, To You I will give all this authority and their glory, because to me it has been delivered, and to whomever I want I give it. If You therefore worship before me, it shall all be Yours.

So to answer your question. This world is in a mess because of its owner is evil itself. And thousands of men have sold their souls to Satan (in ways they are not even aware of) and because of this Man now has an unlimited capacity to do evil.
