Every human being has a sin problem to one degree or another.
The story of Adam and Eve is where sin got its beginning. Lucifer deceived both Adam and Eve into eating of the tree of good and evil. God told them not to, but they did it anyway. At that very moment sin was born into the world.
Since then, every single one of us was born into sin. We have a sin nature that causes us to defy God’s authority and many to even hate God.
Today, sin has its’ fangs into every part of society around the world.
Be sober and vigilant, because your opponent the devil aka lucifer, as a roaring lion, doth walk about, seeking whom he may swallow up… 1 Peter 5:8
Nobody has to teach us to sin, it is an effortless experience for every person alive.
Here’s a common example of sin, when in trouble a small child will lie to Mom or Dad without thought. A child will steal from his brother or sister with no instruction whatsoever.
God gave the 10 commandments through Moses thousands of years ago. These commandments form God’s law for mankind. When we break these commandments we sin against God.
God holds each one of us responsible each time we break His law. We stand guilty for each sin committed against God’s Law.
But God in His rich mercy has given us a way of escape though the Gospel of Jesus Christ for our sin – otherwise we will be declared guilty of our sins and will pay our sin debt in Hell forever after we die.
Next, we will explore the “way of escape”, The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
