Words of Comfort: Sick or well?

"Why did God create us sick then command us to be well?”

When God made Adam, everything was "very good" (see Genesis 1:31). There was no disease, pain, suffering and death. These miseries came when Adam sinned. God cursed the ground and gave Adam and his offspring the death sentence. The Bible says that we "die in Adam," but we can be "made alive in Christ" (see 1 Corinthians 15:22). You are free to ignore God's command to repent and trust in the Savior, but if you do, instead of receiving mercy, you will get Justice.
