If God made a good world, then why is there so much bad stuff in the world? Why are there wars, and pandemics, and break-ups, and death? Why is my life in such a mess? In the second part of the What is Christianity? course we look at where it all went wrong – the cause of every bad thing in the world. Here we explore Genesis chapter 3, which explains how evil entered into the world.
I think many of us feel uncomfortable about saying that we hate anything – but yet the Bible does tell us to hate certain things.

Part two of a six-part series on the question “What is Christianity?” To answer the question we’ll look at a very brief overview of the whole Bible.
In this video we think about Genesis 3, one of the most important chapters in the Bible. We think about:
- What sin is,
- What sin does,
- How it explains the world.
If you don’t have a Bible you can get them online or via apps, e.g. the YouVersion Bible app, or http://biblegateway.com. The two Bible translations I mention are called the New International Version and the New Living Translation.
