Each day bring new tragedy, a small child is diagnosed with leukemia and undergoes extensive treatment only to die in the motherís arms, a faithful missionary family is attacked by the people they minister and killed, others drown in a tsunami and some buried by great earthquakes.
A question then rises, was creation really very good?
In the beginning, God created the universe and everything in it in six actual days; at the end of his creative works He declared it as very good.
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very goodÖ
To have been very good, Godís creation must have been with no blemish defect, disease, suffering or death.
If there was no human or plant death, when God finished his works and pronounced it as very good, why then do we die now?
We see death all around us every day; it is like something strange happened! Do you know that something that changed the good creation to death and suffering?
That something was sin.
What brought about sin and what are its consequences?
