Adam and Eve’s sin In The Garden Of Eden changed the world forever.
What is sin?
How did their sin affect you and I?
What is sin to a person who does not believe in Jesus Christ as Savior?
What is sin to a person who has believed in Jesus Christ as Savior?
Matt Perman writing for Desiring God shared this:
As a result of Adam’s sin, we all enter the world with a fallen nature. This is original sin–the sinful tendencies, desires, and dispositions in our hearts with which we are all born. Thus, original sin is something inherent in us–it is a morally ruined character. The original sin that we are all born with manifests itself throughout our lives in actual sins–the actions, thoughts, and feelings we have that violate God’s moral commands. So, our sinful hearts (original sin) cause us to make sinful choices, think sinful thoughts, and feel sinful feelings (actual sins). We are not sinners because we sin; rather, we sin because we are sinners. We are all born totally imprisoned in original sin. There is no island of goodness left in us.
