Human nature, according to some Darwinian Evolutionists, is fixed and unchanging. Why it should get to a certain point and stop evolving remains unanswered. I would agree that it is fixed, but not unchangeable. Our nature was fixed the day mankind fell into sin in the Garden of Eden. Now all mankind has a sin nature, which is synonymous with human nature. From God’s perspective, there is nothing good in us. We are all sinners in His sight. Even the best that we could do, according to Isaiah 64:6, is as filthy rags. Does that mean we are worthless? No, not at all. God still loved us enough to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us. What does that mean? Simply this, that human nature is fixed and can’t be changed is true for us, but not true for God. Since the fall of man, God has required a sacrifice for sins. We find the first sacrifice in the Garden of Eden when God made ‘coats of skins’ to cover Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:22). Throughout the Old Testament, God’s people had to offer a sacrifice to cover their sins, but it could never take away those sins (Hebrews 10:4). God sent His only begotten Son to be the Perfect Sacrifice for us. John the Baptist said of Jesus, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29)”. The Bible says that God made Jesus to be sin for us even though He knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.(2 Corinthians 5:21). Our first birth gave us our ‘human nature’, which was corrupted by sin. The only thing that can change that nature is to be born again. Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3:7 “ye must be born again”. The Bible says in 1Peter 1:23 “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” To be born again means to believe what the Bible says about us, that we are all sinners by nature and that Jesus Christ died as our sacrifice for sins and rose again for our justification.
To change human nature we have only to “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”. To neglect salvation is to shun eternal life and bear the penalty for your own sins. The Bible says that the ‘wages of sin is death’, and this ends at the Great White throne judgement of Revelation, where death and hell were cast into the lake of fire, which is the second death.
The old saying is true: Born once, die twice. Born twice, die once.
Don’t neglect salvation for “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”.
