Creation Cycle: The Story of All Things
Why can no humans live
in God's Sanctuary now?
Lesson 13 Introduction
As our covenant head, Adam failed to live up to God’s standard. Now, you and I, along with all humans, are born with a desire to wish God away and set our own standard for righteousness. A brief history of humanity would go something like this: we’re born able to love God and able to love ourselves. Once we sin, we lose the ability to love God. We’re broken and in need of redemption. Only by means of a special act of love and courage, carried out by God himself, can we be made able to love God again, and become fit for life in his Sanctuary.
