THE WORLD’S TWO-NESS


What’s the big problem with the world?

DISCUSS: “You and I do bad things and fail to do good things.  If we don’t sort out this sin problem now we’ll be in trouble when we die.”

What’s good and bad about this statement?

How would you improve it?

.

1 Corinthians 15:20-23

In Adam we – and the whole world – are taken down to death and curse

In Christ we – and the whole world – are raised to life and blessings

.

Shaped by our families

In Adam we share:

family historydisconnection from God.

family traitsdefects: suspicion, slavery, selfishness, stuff-ups

family inheritancedeath.

.
Our problem is not so much our behaviour, it’s our being.
How will this affect our evangelism?

.

O loving wisdom of our God!
When all was sin and shame,
A second Adam to the fight
And to the rescue came.
Praise to the Holiest in the Height, J.H. Newman

.
How does Jesus solve our disconnection, defects and death?

John 3:1-18

.

A Sentence Up Your Sleeve...

That problem is beyond me. I don’t think I/we can ever solve it, do you?”

.

QUESTIONS

  1. How are Adam and Jesus similar?  How are they different?
  2. Someone asks, “Why is there so much suffering and evil in the world?”  Using the teaching of this session, how would you answer?
  3. If you were asked “Why did Jesus come?” how would you answer?
  4. What is the “problem” you’d drop into conversation above? How do you think you could naturally speak about our great need for a Saviour?

    Your 3 2 1 is a useful reminder of why we are; who we are; and where we may eternally in live and reign. Adam's nature leads to generation after generation of "then he died." Jesus and His Spirit give eternal life for our futures. His unseen Spirit is felt by us through Jesus' Life of becoming our curse. We look to Him uplifted and Live because of the Trinity's Love for the kosmos. We shall never perish.

  2. A3B7A29B44 BW 4,6 some part of me with 1 Adam

    Let us not forget, not all creatures created in the six days consciously know evil. Here are descriptions: "see the face of God;" "stands in the presen of God;" "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty who was, and is and is to come."(These say this day and night.) Our forefather in your picture could also have enjoyed an eternity in the original paradise including a completely God-centered sexuality. It would also have been immortal and passed onto every child who may have this herald: Here is this newly born holy one of the flesh who shall never see decay.
