ABSTRACT

The effect of Sin is very devastating. It has brought about the experience of disorder in human life. This includes emotional disorders, dysfunctional families or family disorder, mental disorder, social disorders, economic disorders, personal disorders, work disorders, and finally the most serious of all disorders are moral and spiritual disorders which emanated from what is theologically called the Original Sin. As a result of sin, man became totally depraved and estranged from God. He is totally unable to save himself and his spiritual bankruptcy made him spiritually empty and dead. However, through the saving work of Christ, man was restored into fellowship with God. The atoning work of Christ healed the estrangement and believers are given new life in Christ.
