“Normal” is No Longer “Good”

From Points 7 & 8










Not only does the Bible teach the reality of God, Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit, it also exposes the reality that “normal” is no longer “good;” normal is actually inclined to evil.


If one could ask a fish, “How’s the water?” The fish might reply, “What water?”
because water is normal to a fish.  


Before the fall of humankind, normal was very good (Genesis 1:31). And now since the fall, normal includes the bondage of unrest—health issues, unholy traits, and doctrinal errors. (“What water?”)


This can be proved abundantly but we will give passages here to prove to your satisfaction that this is truth. Note the following passages:

Every other evil to work against the Kingdom of Love reigning – God’s Plan.





God wants to save—rescue and restore—each person from the above, as well as from every other unholy trait and health issue.


“When Adam sinned [missed the mark], sin entered the entire human race. Adam's sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned … What a contrast between Adam and Christ, who was yet to come! And what a difference between our sin and God's generous gift of forgiveness. For this one man, Adam, brought death to many through his sin. But this other, Y’shua Messiah (Jesus Christ), brought forgiveness to many through God's bountiful gift. And the result of God's gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man's sin. For Adam's sin led to condemnation, but we have the free gift of being accepted by God, even though we are guilty of many sins. The sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over us, but all who receive [rely on] God's wonderful, gracious gift of righteousness will live in triumph over sin and death through this one, Jesus Christ. 


Yes, Adam's one sin brought condemnation upon everyone, but Christ's one act of righteousness makes all people who choose [rely on] right in God's sight and gives them life. Because one person disobeyed God, many people became sinners. But because one other obeyed God, many people shall be made right in God's sight.


… So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God's wonderful kindness can rule instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” 

  Romans 5:12-21 NLT









God gives the people who choose to rely on His Spirit of Holiness the power to:


“…Throw off your old evil nature and your former way of life, which is rotten through and through, full of lust and deception. Instead, there must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes.”   Ephesians 4:22-23


“But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don't lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old evil nature and all its wicked deeds. In its place you have clothed yourselves with a brand-new nature that is continually being renewed as you learn more and more about Christ, who created this new nature within you.”  Colossians 3:8-10



“You used to live just like the rest of the world, full of sin, obeying Satan, the mighty prince of the power of the air. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God.”  Eph. 2:2



“In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which do not believe, lest the light of the glorious gospel of the Messiah (the Christ), who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”  2 Corinthians 4:4



“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, loveless cheap sex, thefts, lying, and slander….”  Matthew 15:19



“Their lives were full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, fighting, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They are forever inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient to their parents. They refuse to understand, break their promises, and are heartless and unforgiving. They are fully aware of God's death penalty for those who do these things, yet they go right ahead and do them anyway. And, worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.”  Rom. 1:29-31



“It is obvious what kind of life develops out of consistently living by your own [inclined to evil] nature: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small-minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions; ugly parodies of community. I could go on…”  Galatians 5:19-21 The Message Translation







Back to the Plan of God








The ultimate purpose of God in all His present dealings with man is to bring him back to the place where he was before the fall (beloved fellowship & harmony) and purge him of all possibility of failing in the future...




…The Kingdom of Love is the Plan of God
to End Evil and Suffering.

(Exodus 34:6-7; Psalm 34:15-16; Proverbs 1:24-33; Ezekiel 33:11-20; Romans 6:16-23; 8:12-13; 11:11-29; 1 Corinthians 15:24-28; 2 Corinthians 3:16-17; 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-21; 6:7-8; Hebrews 6:4-9; 10:26-29; 2 Peter 2:9, 20-21; Revelation 21-22)









Some proof of humankind’s inclination to evil,

evil’s progressive nature,

and that denial is its primary characteristic.







Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) is alive and well, and wants you to be rescued and restored from all your life-problems; so take Him as your partner in life from now on.
