"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23
God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and freedom of choice.
We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in sparation from God.
Our choice results in separation from God.
People have tried in many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God...
"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death." Proverbs 14:12
"But your iniquities have separated you from God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear." isaiah 59:2
NO BRIDGE REACHES GOD...EXCEPT ONE.
