Sin / salvation
Reported in the Bible 3,000 years before science discovered it!
First paragraph in the Bible
'IN THE BEGINNING God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the face of the deep, and the spirt of God was hovering over the waters.'
(Genesis 1:1-2)

Original sin

Now, for another illustration, look at this train diagram to help explain some key Christian concepts and terminology:

Everyone comes into the world on Track 1, headed for hell (original sin) because of sin, and stays on Track 1 unless the person makes a deliberate decision to get off and go to Track 2.
Because God is just, there are exceptions, as explained in Jesus only way?: for children ... for mentally handicapped ... for people who have never clearly heard about Jesus ...
But the exceptions don't apply here. We KNOW, or at least are put on notice to investigate further. Now we will be held accountable, individually, for our response.


For everyday shortcomings, we usually use a softer term for evil. We call it Sin.
Generally, we know what sin is, from our conscience, from the Bible and from our civil laws.
The key point is not that we must eliminate all sin from our lives – we can't because we're human – or that we must identify and atone for every sin.
The key point is that every person, humbly and individually, must acknowledge that he or she is a sinner and needs Jesus Christ as Savior. This is the core Christian belief, as explained by God's character.

Election / Chosen

Election should be called INVITATION. Not all invited because of time and place. They don't even know available.

Can't say its not fair because no one excluded with conscious knowledge. Anyone knowing can accept the invitation.

Bible was right

It's only within the last 60 years that science has acknowledged that the earth has NOT ALWAYS EXISTED but rather had a formless beginning from massive external power, just as the Bible has said all along.

It's highly unlikely that any writer three thousand years ago could know about the big bang without divine revelation from the designer/creator.

Scientific comfirmation increases confidence in the Bible and provides another REASON for Christian faith.
