(WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SIN
NATURE AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT NOW)
Obviously DISTRICT 9 is not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. But YOU were interested. No doubt you are an SF fan. And very likely you are a citizen of the world and concerned about life. Furthermore, you are obviously a seeker.
DISTRICT 9 is obviously fiction, but the problems it raises are real, and the solutions are real too.
The CREATOR has real solutions and wants the whole world to hear about them and experience them. One day soon, the Creator is going to act and end what we know as human history, and then apply those solutions on a world wide basis.
The good news is that you don’t have to wait for the END OF THE AGE to get the solution, you can have it NOW.
If you will admit the problem exists in your life, you can actually experience the solution NOW.
The BIBLE actually tells us that the solution is available NOW to anybody who wants it, who will believe, and do what God tells them to do: John 4:23 “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” Notice the word NOW. 2Corinthians 6:2 “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
God, who sees everything and knows everything, is watching you right NOW, and will respond with the solution as soon as you call out to him for help.
The DISTRICT 9 ANALOGY was written primarily to draw attention to the fallen human nature. The reason human beings act like they do—the reason we have such a long history of war and crime and ignorance— is because although we were made in the image of God, our first parents, Adam and Eve sinned against God and brought the CURSE OF SIN on themselves and all their children.
SIN is not just doing wrong, but also not doing right. It’s not only doing EVIL, but not doing GOOD.
THE PROBLEM & THE SOLUTION
1. ALL human beings are BORN SINNERS.
Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
2. The BIBLE evaluation of everybody is that we’ve ALL sinned, not once, but many times.
Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
3. The universal penalty for sin is DEATH.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
4. The only antidote for the prescription of DEATH, is if you could get someone to die in your place:
Rom 5:7,8 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
5. The only substitute who could die in your place and pay your sin-debt would have to be sinless.
Heb 4:15 [Jesus Christ] was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
6. God will SAVE YOU if you will admit you are a sinner and ask Christ to save you from your sin.
Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
7. If YOU WANT TO BE SAVED FROM SIN: Say a prayer something like this and mean it: “God of creation, I believe that if you exist you probably are trying to make contact. I’ve sensed that you might be there, but I’ve been afraid to face you. I now understand you’re trying to rescue me, that you mean me no harm. I think I now understand why I’ve been afraid to invite you into my life. You are obviously holy, completely perfect and sinless (I can tell by the beauty, complexity and vastness of your Creation) and because of my sins, I’ve been afraid to face you. Somehow I’ve suspected that because of my sins I wouldn’t be able to stand before you. But now I see that you sent your son Jesus Christ to pay my sin debt. I don’t fully understand it, but I have to admit I’ve heard this story many times throughout my life and I realize it wouldn’t be still in circulation if it wasn’t true. I want to discover for myself if it’s true, so right now, as best as I know how, I admit I’m a sinner in need of forgiveness, and I ask your Son Jesus Christ to come into my life, forgive my sin, and save my soul. In Jesus name I pray,please God, reveal yourself to me! –AMEN
