We live in a fallen world & it will always be fallen; therefore, utopia is impossible here. Yes, you heard me right; it is impossible! Mankind’s heart is hopelessly inclined to rebellion.
For the present age we live in, there will never be “no crime”. There will never be “no sickness”. There will always be poor people. There will always be wars and rumors of wars. There will always be haters of Jews and Christians.
There will always be selfishness in all of its forms. There will always be greed and there will always be covetousness. There will always be jealousy and envy. There will always be hate and murder. There will always be promiscuity. There will always be a lust for power, a lust for forbidden sex, and a lust for money.
Every single human being is born with this fallen nature and carries it with them everyday for the whole of their lives.
“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)
All this evil comes straight out of the heart. Unless there is a genuine heart change, then the human being remains unchanged. Mankind is not capable of changing his own fallen heart. Happily, there is a remedy.
There was One and only One, who was born without this sin nature. YaHshua Jesus did not receive man’s fallen nature, because he had no earthly father. Being a perfect sinless man qualified Him to be a perfect sacrifice for the sins of mankind. He shed His own life’s blood on the cross as payment in full for your sins and for my sins.
Whoever receives this free gift of “pardon for sins” is given a new heart. Did you get that? They are given a brand new heart. Even though their flesh remains fallen and must be constantly submitted, the new heart inside is clean and capable of righteousness through Christ.
The people who refuse this free gift are incapable of building a utopia. They want to control, take from, use, and abuse other humans for their own selfish ends. Their hearts are hopelessly so inclined, because they refuse to receive Almighty God’s generous offer.
