What if I told you God was real? What if I told you He sent His son to die for you? You might ask, “Why would He do that? It seems pointless.” But in fact, it was for a specific reason. Here, let me tell you a story.
When mankind was first created, all we knew was goodness. We didn't see evil in anything. We were just blind to it.
But before I go any further, let's rewind some. In the hosts of heaven, Lucifer, God's right-hand angel, became jealous, and he wanted to have God's power. God wouldn't have it, so He faught against Lucifer, and the fight ended in him bring kicked out of Heaven. Lucifer convinced a third of the angels to follow him on his way out of God's presence and they prowled the earth looking for revenge. Lucifer became known as Satan, and his followers as demons.
Now, back to our beginning; when all we saw was the good side of things. God gave us a beautiful garden to live in, with all types of plants providing the food needed to survive without effort. But there was a tree of good and evil. And in it's fruit, held the power to open our eyes to the evil of the world.
Now let me stop you right there. I know, why on earth would God create such a tree if He knew the destruction it would cause? Easy, because He didn't want us to be slaves. He wanted us to choose for ourselves how we live.
Back to the story, God commanded us to not eat from the tree, and we listened. Then one day, Satan snuck into the garden disguised as a serpent. He came up to Eve, and decived her into believing she would receive God's power if she ate the fruit. She then went and convinced Adam to eat it as well. And that was the beginning of the fall for mankind.
God gave us the choice, but He never wanted us to choose sin. He wants to be close to us, but our sin is an eternal barrier between us. There was only one way to break that barrier, and so God did what He had to.
