The Doctrine of the Fall as Good News
By Ben Keyes
From a Christian worldview the doctrine of the fall provides an answer for the basic questions: “what is wrong with the world and why?” However, in eagerness to emphasize the good news and victory of the gospel, Christian people sometimes under-emphasize the fall and its many effects. Sadly, this can lead to confusion and disillusionment in our faith. This lecture will explore an idea that we have seen demonstrated in the life of L’Abri many times: that while the fall itself is the worst news, understanding the doctrine of the fall can bring clarity to much of our confusion and equip us to live in a world that is broken.
