Today, information is readily available for mankind. Many people in various fields, and through many ways of communication attempt to provide answers to different questions. Now, it seemed as though nothing cannot be understood or learned. From parenting, travel, leisure, how to’s, everything can be typed in the searched engine and in no time you will have the result you want.
This is how it is in the world now. However, there is one question whose answer I only realised fully until I met the Church of God (World Mission Society). “Why is life unfair?” At a young mind, I saw injustices, experienced it first hand, and watched in disbelief as it happens to others. Society shows favours to people in power and elevated status as though everything good in life is exclusively made for such people. And to those who were born in a desperate state, they have no choice but to accept their fate.
I sought answers through various religious and inspirational books,but I failed to find consolation I needed. I attempted to read the Bible again, but end up abandoning as I could not fully understand what it means, the former church I belong to seemed to violate the words written on it. I was lost even more, thinking that the God I sought in that church doesn’t comfort me in my dire need of Him.
When I met God Elohim in the Church of God, I learned the most important truth about me, that made everything else clear. This truth is that I am a sinner.
I have been taught since the time I have learned to think that I am indeed a sinner because a certain Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden apple in the garden of Eden, and since they are the first man and woman all the next generation suffered because of the sin we inherited from them. This is the nonsensical belief that I have believed for almost three decades.
Only when I met the True God Elohim then I have understand the true meaning of being a sinner. The Bible has so many testimonies about us being heavenly angels in heaven before we came to this earth. Solomon wrote in Proverbs 8
22“The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,before his deeds of old; 23I was formed long ages ago, at the very beginning, when the world came to be. 24When there were no watery depths, I was given birth, when there were no springs overflowing with water; 25before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth, 26before he made the world or its fields or any of the dust of the earth. 27I was there when he set the heavens in place, when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep, 28when he established the clouds above and fixed securely the fountains of the deep, 29when he gave the sea its boundary so the waters would not overstep his command, and when he marked out the foundations of the earth. 30Then I was constantly at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence,
Solomon is human like us, but he was blessed with wisdom by God. Through his words we know that we’ve been with God before the creation of the world.
In the book of Job it is written,
1Then the to Job out of the storm. He said:2“Who is this that obscures my planswith words without knowledge?3Brace yourself like a man;I will question you,and you shall answer me.4“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?Tell me, if you understand.21Surely you know, for you were already born!You have lived so many years!
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
