Yahoo Answers

I like to go into Yahoo Answers and look around at questions people ask. This was one I ran into. Had to answer it. I am copying here in case anyone runs into my site and might wonder the same. :o)
If it's human nature to sin, why does God get all bent out of shape about it? After all, he created us... -Giovanni

My Answer:
You're missing it! Remember, God created Adam and Eve. They were deceived in the garden and chose to disobey God. Because God loves us so much, He gave us a free will. However, He cannot allow sin in Heaven. We choose who we want to serve. Some don't believe in hell. But even if there was only a 5% chance there was a hell, it is in my best interest to avoid it. But! Remember, sin always comes with consequences. Yes, we have the free will to sin, but we must also accept our consequences from it. If sin was such an "okay" thing, why does so much heartache come with it? Face it, the pleasure of a certain sin is only temporary, then you usually have to move onto something more, and more, and more..... Instead, see it that God loves you so much that He gave His only son. That way you HAVE a chance to be redeemed. NOT ONLY THAT! But to live a life free from the consequences of sin. Sin paints such a pretty picture. But it'll never show you the other side. God loves you so much He'd rather spare you than have your life down spiral into sin. Think of it like that.

Giovanni knows that it's human nature to sin. Bet he'd "get all bent out of shape" if someone decided to sin by killing his entire family.

Just saying.
