Why should I become a Christian?<br />Copyright of Favor Church 2010<br />
Why do I need to be saved?<br />God made man to have dominion over creation<br />God created man for fellowship and the devil deceived the first man and woman created, Adam and Eve to disobey God.<br />It was their disobedience that caused them to be separated from fellowship with God.<br />This became a generational curse that the whole human race has sin.<br />Sin brings spiritual death, which separates us from our Creator.<br />Copyright of Favor Church 2010<br />
