There are news article circulating the internet from a research study done by the University of Exeter (British) that mankind’s behavior might be genetically programmed to make one individual nice and another nasty.
From a news article, “Genes are to be blamed if a person good or bad and not the surrounding. To understand the concept of genetic polymorphism, researchers has produced a an innovative model of social evolution and concluded that some people are genetically programmed to help other, while the other aspect also tends to the same concept.”
One of the definitions of nasty is defiled, another good word that could be chosen would be corrupt. For years psychobabble has declared many sinful lives as having a cause or origin outside of the control of the individual with the ‘diagnosis’. Now mankind is looking to take that one step further and not only deny their Creator, but through ‘science’ declare that sin might not be the individual’s fault, but rather their genetic makeup. Are the Holy Scriptures silent on this?
“My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.” Psalms 139:15
“And Jehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2:7
God is the one who created mankind, not some nonsense evolutionary process. Man continually searches to find proof that there is no God, now furthering that, trying to excuse sin. There is a problem with that, all will stand before God Almighty and be judged. If your name is not written in the Book of Life you will be cast into Hell and righteously judged for your sin, there will be no excuses made before a holy and righteous God. Your mouth will be shut.
“So then each of us shall give account concerning himself to God.” Romans 14:12
“Now we know that whatever the Law says, it says to those who are under the Law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Romans 3:19
“The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has done, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall live life; he shall not die. None of the transgressions which he has done shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live. Do I delight with pleasure in the death of the wicked? says the Lord Jehovah, and not that he should turn backfrom his ways and live?” Ezekiel 18:20-23
“And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, out of the things which were written in the books. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one, according to their works. And Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.” Revelation 20:12-15
Understand that there is indeed a sinful nature and man is born into it. God sent His only Son to die on the Cross for your sins. This changes the ‘genetic’ makeup of man and makes him a new creature. Indeed there is a problem, but God has already provided the solution if you are willing.
…”for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”… Romans 3:23
“Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” Psalms 51:5
“And so it is written, The first man Adam became a living soul; the last Adam a life-giving Spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was out of the earth, of dust; the second Man is the Lord out of Heaven. As is the man of dust, so also are those of dust; and as is the Manfrom Heaven, so also are those of Heaven. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the Manof Heaven. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood is not able to inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.” 1st Corinthians 15:45-50
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16-17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2nd Corinthians 5:17
Repent and believe into Jesus before it is too late!
“Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” 2nd Corinthians 6:2b
“The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is longsuffering toward us, not purposing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” 2nd Peter 3:9
“For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.” 2nd Corinthians 7:10
“But what does it say? The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the Word of Faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:8-10
“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised the third day according to the Scriptures” 1st Corinthians 15:3-4
Don’t let the mainstream science fool you, God did give you a conscience.
“For eversince the creation of the world the unseen things of Him are clearly perceived, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they know God, they do not glorify Him as God, nor are thankful, but become vain in their reasonings, and their stupid hearts are darkened.” Romans 1:20-21
