Part 62 I was asked last week by a young man that was curious as to the consequences of sin in the world, not on a personal basis but on an earthly basis. He had seen in the several places of the Bible where the term “darkness” was used to describe those overtaken in sin (Eph. 5:8; Matt. 4:16; 1 Peter 2:9). He asked if the darkness in the night that we experience when the sun sets was part of the earthly consequences of sin when Adam and Eve ate of the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He thought that perhaps in the paradise of Eden, the sun never set and light was always present. The question showed an excellent search for seeking knowledge and growth in the mind of a young Christian. We should all consider the consequences of sin in this world and never forget that sin and the consequences thereof remain a large part of the world in which we live.
