Our sinful nature drives us to disobey God's laws, just as Adam and Eve transgressed by choosing the way of death. Such choices have made this evil world.
We must understand Jesus' words about being born again from a spiritual perspective. Interpreting His symbols physically obscures necessary truths.
Our outward works show what we believe, what we worship, and what we aspire to become. Apart from God, all human works activities are potentially destructive.
