So again the question why?  Why have I chosen to believe the Christian message of redemption and hope?

In order to explain this I first need to begin with a few precepts that to me are self-evident.  In other words, I don’t need to be convinced of their truth, every ounce of my soul, mind and body testify to their truth.  Call this my world-view.

1.  My nature is bent towards evil.

2.  I am hopeless to change.

3.  The human race is bent towards evil.

4.  We are hopeless to change.

Given that what then am I to do?

I could despair.  I could give into my natural tendencies and live a life of depravity, living only for myself.

Or, I could have hope.  Hope in a benevolent God who has put into place a mechanism to change my nature.

I choose hope.
