    2. 2. THE FALL  God created man and woman in his images and likeness and He made them friends of himself.  He intended for them to live in friendship and happiness with Him in Earth knowing and loving Him  And then they would be take to heaven, where they will be happy with Him for ever  But when Adam and Eve freely chose to turn away from God and rejected his friendship, they lost His Grace and their Sin was pass on to all people.  So humans born Not in a STATE OF FRIENDSHIP with God, but in State of SIN
    3. 3. THE MERCY AND PROMISE OF GOD  Sin has caused a terrible problem, and it is a problem that we can not solve for ourselves and our own strength.  Remember our human nature is hurt, and we born with concupiscence: we have a tendency to sin.  So, the only one who can solve the Sin problem for us, is God. because He is the only one who have the grace. We don’t have it; we lost it by sin.  But don’t worry, The Story Of Creation did not ended in tragedy, desperation, or sadness. But in HOPE!  God himself enter the scene, and shows us his mercy by giving us hope.  God responds to the sin of humans is not to abandon them, but to show them Mercy and Love.  When God tells Adam and Eve the consequences of sin, He also promised them to send a SAVIOR.  God the Father promised that sin and evil will not prevail and all descendants of Adam and Eve will defeat and overcome Sin. (Gen 3:15; Gen 12:13)

    5. 5. JESUS MESSAGE  Jesus became man and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,  For us men and for our salvation, Jesus came down from heaven and give us this message: “God Our Father in heaven, created you and He Loves you and want you with Him in Heaven.”
    6. 6. WE ARE NO MERELY PRODUCT OF EVOLUTION  Pope Benedict XVI: We are not some causal or meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is Willed! Each of us is Love! Each of us is a thought of God! Each of us is necessary!  Remember Man is the summit of God’s creation. Everything in the Creation was created and prepared for man and woman and for them to use and enjoy.
    7. 7. EVERY MAN IS GOOD  After God created everything else that is in the world, (air, plants, sea, animals, etc.) he said: “it’s Good”  But after God created man he said: “it’s Very Good”  Every single man is good.  Everything that God made is good, because He is good.  We may be sinners, yes!; but sinners by our own choice.  Our WILL is free, we can freely choose to love or not to love, to do good or bad.  Remember we all are Good because “Our real essence” is good; we are made at God’s image and likeness.
    8. 8. EACH OF US IS A UNIQUE THOUGHT OF GOD  Remember our real essence is good.  If we believe that each of us is important, and each of us is necessary…  Then, We going to think about ourselves differently.  And We going to think about others very differently, too.  We will treat others with dignity and respect  We will treat each person as a very unique thought of God.  Our life become meaningful and find its purpose.
    9. 9. JESUS HAVE BEING WITH US SINCE THE CREATION. The gospel of John tells as that Jesus is the WORD, and He is God, who has been with us since the beginning:  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,  and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.  3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1)
    10. 10. WHY DID THE WORD BECAME FLESH?  The Word became flesh to save us from sin and reconcile us to God.  For God so love the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believe in him not perish but might have eternal live (John 3:16)  God became man that we may partake in the divine nature. “He has bestowed on the precious and very great promises, so that through them you may come to share in the divine nature” (2 Pt 1:4)
    11. 11. ST PAUL WROTE A LETTER TO THE CORINTHIANS  Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things he himself might be preeminent.  For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the blood of his cross through him, whether those on earth or those in heaven (Corinthians 1:15-20) .
    12. 12. GOD HIMSELF BECOMES MAN IN ORDER TO SAVE US.  By God becoming man, shows us His love, more than any other work of God—even the work of creating the world.  We can be certain of God’s love without any shadow of doubt.  Because He didn’t spare even His only Son in order to save us, when we His children were lost in Sin.  God Himself became a man in order to save us.  At the end of His time on earth, Jesus offered His life to the Father as a Sacrifice: for sin— our sins.
    13. 13. JESUS FULFILL THE PLAN OF THE FATHER  Jesus offered His life to the Father as a Sacrifice: for our sins.  By this Act of Jesus restored the friendship between God and the Human race, that have being broken when Adam and Eve sin.  The Fathers plan from the Beginning was that we share in His life of self giving love for all the Eternity  This is why He created the world and everything in it, for us.  By dying for us in the cross, Jesus wan back all that Adam and Eve had lost through sin,  And he fulfill the Plan that the Father had have in the beginning for us—To share in His divine life.
    14. 14. THE STORY IS NOT OVER, YET!  Now that the friendship between God and man is restored, It is possible to have God’s life in us.  CAUTION!: Maybe we are tempted to think that this is the end of the story, after all the problem has been resolved, and that’s when a story usually end,  But There Is More!  There is something need it, and other person to come at the scene.  But what is need it? Hasn’t Jesus done it all?  Well, Yes! but what is needed: is a way for the GRACES Christ has wan for us, to get to us.  And this is the Work of the 3rd person: “The Holy Spirit”.
