Something went wrong. Something is broken. When the famous Apollo 13 flight ran into trouble the Astronauts diagnosed a problem and immortalized the words in their transmission back to mission control “Houston, we have a problem.” The truth is we can all identify. We all face problems and we all know something is broken in our world.
Every religion tries to answer 4 great questions. We seek spiritual truth, some try philosophical truth to answer 4 great questions that science and human reasoning alone cannot answer. Why is there something rather than nothing? What went wrong? Is there any hope? What lies beyond life itself?
The Bible points to the character of man. We are all sinners and our sin has distanced us from God. Consequently the world is broken is some fundamental ways. Is there hope? The answer is “Yes, there is.”
