More Than Misery Is A Jail with A Juice Bar…

The West Minster Shorter catechism asks a very pertinent question: Wherein consists the sinfulness of that estate whereinto man fell? The answer: The sinfulness of that estate whereinto man fell, consists in the guilt of Adam’s first sin, the want of original righteousness, and the corruption of his whole nature, which is commonly called Original Sin; together with all actual transgressions which proceed from it.

Indeed man is fallen, miserable, totally corrupted in his inner nature, depraved and continually wicked. That were it not for God’s grace holding back some evil in the world things would have been a whole lot worse. How does God do this you may ask?

  • For God has left in sinful man the working of conscience (Rom 2:15)
  • Another thing that helps hold men back is the fear of death. (Heb 2:15)
  • God has put in the world to keep sinners from doing wicked things the power of civil government. Rulers are set in the world by God as a terror to evil men. (Rom 13:1-5)
  • The influence of family, education and society.

But what happens when society, civil government and justice system are fractured? Then you brace your self for more than misery
