Why Is The World So Broken?

Why Is The World So Broken?

I remember watching a movie at around age 19, and laughing more than I'd ever laughed before in my entire life.

About 6 months later I became a Christian, finished college and went on to start my career. Some years later I found that same movie in a rental store and excitedly took it home to watch it. I started watching it, and after about 10 or 15 minutes I had to turn it off because it was so crude and so perverse.

I share this because something had happened to me.

Very clearly my view of life had really changed. The way I saw life had changed. And my view of sexuality had changed.

So what happened to me? I guess you could say I was seeing life through a different set of eyes. Clearly the Holy Spirit was in me as a Christian, and had transformed the way I view life. 

Why is the world so broken? I believe the world is broken because of the spiritual condition of man.

All people need the light of Jesus Christ, as Jesus said in Acts 26:18, “to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.” ⁠Watch on YouTube⁠
