Genesis: Sin, the serpent's strikes and evil

Sunday, 2 February 2020 // God's Story: Old Testament


"Why is there suffering and evil in this world?

The world recently mourned the unexpected passing away of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, Australia was combating one of their worst bushfires in history, and COVID-19 was just starting to breakout outside of China.

These events, one after another, reminds us that this world is corrupted by sin. One has to wonder, was this always part of God's plan? God allows evil, but for how long?"

This sermon was preached by our pastor-in-training, Jerome Leng, as part of our sermon series on biblical theology, "God's Story".

Please note that all the audio for our sermons is recorded live and only very lightly edited. From time to time you will hear the preacher making off-the-sermon comments or silences that come with this context. These include: the preacher making a wordless gesture or action to the audience, dropping and picking up something, a blooper that disrupts the flow of the sermon, and even a power outage! Thank you for understanding. We are working on uploading video for all the sermons that work better on video. Keep growing under the Word; may God bless His church.
