Is sinning a blessing or a curse from God?
Did God have a choice to create us as sinners or non-sinners?
Evolution seems to say no to this question and Christianity says that sinning is a happy fault and necessary to God’s plan, which seems to match evolutions plan without conflict. Both evolution and God seem to think that sin is more good than evil.
Evolution forces us to covet and compete and all person to person competition creates a loser who would see his loss as evil. Women, as the prize of competition are; inadvertently and in evolutionary terms, the source of all person to person evil. Evolution explains evil better that religion does even though Christianity, by calling sin a happy fault and necessary to God’s plan; seems to agree that sin is more good than evil.
If sin is a happy fault and necessary to both Christianity and nature, then for God to punish us for sinning would be quite wrong. God created us to default to sin. To survive and thrive we must sin. Paradoxically, to be just, God should reward sinners and not punish them.
I have to conclude that the ability and inclination to sin is a blessing from God, should he exist, or nature which I think rules us.
We are all sinners and should rejoice as sinning is what a god would want us to do. The fittest person on earth is likely the greatest sinner as sinning seems to be a measure of fitness. Nature requires that we all try to be the fittest.
“Be a sinner and sin strongly, but more strongly have faith and rejoice in Christ.” Martin Luther
Would God want to create a person who would not sin?
I don’t think so and neither does Christianity. Do you?
