There is much to celebrate in the advancement of mankind’s knowledge and technology. We have accomplished much and overcome much. One thing we have not, and cannot over on our own, however, is what lies within our own hearts after our fall into sin.
If sin is crouching at our door, as Genesis says, then we need to see it clearly and understand its truly horrible consequences and effects in our lives. Then, we need to see the response of judgment, and of mercy, that our sin causes in God.
