After adam and eve fell from grace as a result of choosing to disobey god in the garden of paradise. they chose to be cut off from god, they chose created material (the fruit from the tree) over their creator. as a result of this, god honoured their choice and gave them the separation they chose. but humans were created to love god, so when they were separate from him they felt an emptiness. god knew that their choice wasn’t good for them so he never truly left them. we have all disobeyed god and chose separation from him. he honours that choice if we chose it but he never ceases to offer us a way to come back to him, for he is loving and knows that he is what is best for us. so throughout the ages after the fall god promised to mankind, that if they choose to love him, that he will save them from their wrongdoings. god spoke through prophets, making promises with mankind, his ultimate promise was that he would send a saviour, who would bring his promise to fulfilment. jesus of nazareth came and fulfilled all the prophecies spoken about the saviour. but he was rejected by many and was tortured and killed just as the prophets had said he would be - “he is despised and the least among men, a man of sorrows who knows infirmity. and his countenance was hidden and despised. because of this, we did not esteem him.” -isaiah 53:3
“even as the son of man has not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a redemption for many." -matthew 20:28.
jesus came so that people may know and believe in him through faith, god wants believers to trust and love him for what he has done for them. jesus founded one church, which he created with a hierarchical structure with saint peter as the head of the church (the first pope - from the greek ‘pappas’ meaning father) he entrusted st peter as the holy father over the church as we read in the gospels “and i say to you, that you are peter, and upon this rock i will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”- matthew 16:18. the catholic church is the only church that can trace an unbroken line of bishops back 2000 years to saint peter.
