Bible offers a joyful ending

I HAVE no comment to make on the debate between RK Roger and Terry Banfield, but I note that he mentions “the outdated notion of original sin.” The words ‘original sin’ does not occur in scripture, but the origin of sin is spoken of, what the almighty is doing about it and its eventual eradication from the Earth.
Mr Banfield’s detestation of things divine continues apace. But let us make a comparison. What does his atheism have to offer to us? An unproven and unscientific view of the universe and this Earth. A random mutation, joyless and purposeless as Mike Buckingham once described it. What does the Bible have to offer? A divine purpose centred in Christ threading its way through history towards an ultimate and joyful conclusion.
