Corruption of Man

The Westminster Confession states, “The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” Genesis 1:27 recounts the creation of man in the image of God, thus establishing the intrinsic value He places on every human life. But in Genesis 3, Adam sinned by disobeying the single commandment God had given him to obey. This caused Adam & Eve to be estranged from God, which caused a God-sized vacuum in the heart of each descendent of theirs thereafter. Only God could restore man’s relationship with Him due to the corruption of his nature. In this Subject, we will learn that man must acknowledge this corruption in order to become right with God. This is called repentance, the first step of Christian faith. It means “a change of mind leading to action.”
