SERMON TOPIC: Good and evil
Speaker: Ken Paynter
Date: 15 August 2015
Topic Groups: CHOICE, ETHICS, APOLOGETICS
Sermon synopsis: Our idea as humans of what is good and what is evil is very different from what God says is good and what is evil. Modern psychology states that man is inherently good and that a person’s upbringing or environment is what is responsible for how they turn out, but God’s Word paints a very different picture of the state of humankind.
Jesus himself said this about us.
Matthew 7:11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!Not only do we as humans not have the ability to differentiate between what is good and what is evil, we ourselves are evil.
