Just how bad is sin, anyway? According to the Bible, it’s not just a matter of “oops, oh well.” When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the ramifications were eternal and devastating. Watch how in By This Name, John Cross uses the visual aid of a rotten rat to show how sin has separated us from God.
“Sin has infinite and eternal ramifications. Just like we would not want to live with the rotten rat next week or at any time, God will never allow sin to dwell in his presence. So it was that sin destroyed that first friendship. A barrier, a chasm now existed between God and man. Man was ‘… dead… in transgressions and sins’ (Ephesians 2:1, NET).”
