All of Us Have Sinned
Case 6: God's View of You
When Adam disobeyed God in the garden, did it cause everyone born after him to be sinners like him?
Yes. Through Adam, sin and sin's consequences came into the world and to all people. His sinful record and sinfulness were passed down to us. Romans 5:12b – Through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin.
This Truth Makes
The Greek word translated “world” in Romans 5:12 is kosmos, which includes the entire human race. It is the same word used in John 3:16. Sin has spread to everyone on the planet!
Because of Adam’s sin, we are in a sinful condition. We are not sinners because we sin. We sin because we are sinners. All of us have fallen in Adam’s fall.
Not only sin, but also the penalty of sin has spread to everyone on the planet. The Bible says that death has passed upon all men.
