The Realization that one is not perfect but is deeply flawed; is the realization that sin exists and that humanity needs a Savior.
The Bible is a historical document describing the history of a flawed humanity and a loving God. It recounts the stories of individuals concerning their failures, shortcomings and sins. It displays the tragedies, hopes and heartbreaks of peoples of various times; who were in desperate need of a Supernatural Savior who could redeem them from their own vices and sins.
The Gospel is the message that permeates through out the Bible telling us that God loves us and its story begins before creation itself. God had a plan to redeem all of mankind from the virus sin and their desires of rebellion.
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23
Think for a moment! If we are gods, could we achieve perfection? Why have we not evolved into this higher state? Why can we not break the chains of racism, rape, murder, abuse and hate? Why are we more selfish? Has our godhood failed, or is sin, the virus that plagues us, the contributing factor to our demise?
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
God in His love for us; gave us the solution.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
God became flesh, demonstrated how to live righteously and then became a sacrifice for our sins, by dying in our place, so that we could be free from sin and have eternal life.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5
12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the [e]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:12-13
