God s approach to man s redemption
God’s approach to man’s redemption

  • Theology of Salvation: Soteriology

    • God’s creation was good and perfect:

      • Man’s habitation was carefully prepared to provide for all his needs: physical, emotional and intellectual.

    • Man was tempted by the devil and sinned (disbelief and disobey) on his own accord. (Enticed by own lust, carried away, conceived, birthed).

      • Sin entered the world by one man and with it the curse: on the devil, man and even nature. Man was put out of the garden and condemned to death.

      • As a consequence of his fall his original nature was polluted and weakened and he lost many of the privileges and provisions he had before.

      • Man’s depravation: Total vs. Partial.

      • Original sin and the passing down of the sinful nature and death.

    • But, God made a gracious promise: Redemption from Adam’s “seed.”

      • Also by one man salvation entered the world and offered to all (whosoevers).

      • Those who believe would be saved through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus.

Adam s acknowledges his state and attempts to correct it
Adam's acknowledges his stateand attempts to correct it

  • Acknowledgement and Feeble Attempts to cover sin

  • (Gen. 3:7-13)

  • Loin cloths of fig leaves

  • Tried to hide from God

  • Fear came upon them

  • The Blame Game

    • Adam blames Eve & by extension also God

    • Eve blames the serpent

“7Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths. 8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden …, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LordGod …. 9 But the Lord God called … to him, “Where are you?” 10 And he said, “I heard the sound of you

in the garden, and I was afraid,

because I was naked, and I hid myself.” 11 He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit …, and I ate.” 13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said,

“The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

What is lacking from man s approach
What is lacking from man’s approach?

    • Soul (Mind, Brain- Means for Decision-making): Corrupted, diluted

    • Spirit (Means of interacting with the Life-Giver): Severed connection

    • Body (Means of interacting with the physical world): Sick

  • 17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind,

  • 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorancethat is in them, because of the blindness of their heart;

  • 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleannesswith greediness.






Sins of

The Flesh

What is lacking from man s approach1
What is lacking from man’s approach?

  • Underestimate Man’s adversaries(Not easily identified /defeated)

    • The Devil- powerful enemy:

      • “roaring lion” (I Pet. 5:8)

    • The Flesh- its weakness & powerful appetites (Rom. 6:19)

    • The World- its influence and attraction (I Jn. 2:16; 5:19)

    • Conscience and the Law –Accuse & Condemn (Rom. 7:5)

23 “…but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” Rom 5:23-24

Truths about redemption
truths about redemption

  • Redemption starts with a single transaction:

    • The price of Redemption was paid completely at the cross

    • The access to God is open. The offer of salvation is available to all men.

    • Whosoever believes changes position (death to life); receives the assurance of salvation

  • Redemption is about salvation of the soul and the restoration of the whole man:

    • A clean heart, a renewed spirit. A new body at the resurrection

    • This restoration is a process that starts here and ends there

  • Salvation is the work of God, but man’s will is involved. Redemption also involves the active participation of man

    • An expressed desire to be redeemed completely

    • Applied spiritual effort to allow God to restore us. Yield to the Spirit of God

    • Fight daily the battle of faith with the armor of God

    • Allow the Lord to cleanse him daily.

Redemption plan god redeems man responds receives
redemption plan: God redeems, man responds & receives

Christ pays for the transgressions of all mankind

Man hears the “Good News” and Believes in the vicarious sacrifice of Christ, as our redeemer; repents for his sins and ask for forgiveness (Opp. Choice: Reject)

God accepts Christ sacrifice in behalf of the repentant sinner, imputing his sins to Christ and imputing Christ’s righteousness to man.

Man endeavors to follow Jesus in word and deed (Opp. Choice: Disobey, Rebel)

God begins the process of redemption of the whole of man (Spirit, Soul, Body)

Mans obeys God’s Word and avails himself of God’s provision for Redemption(Opp. Choice: Neglect to learn, heed, obey, grow)

God removes the curse from creation & restores all things new. (Rom 8:21)
