We All Sin (Rom 5)

 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned… Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.

It’s not my fault, it’s only human nature, right? Well, not so much. Adam and Eve sinned, and as a result all of humanity’s nature is broken, so broken that we all will sin. But that’s just it, we all will sin. Even though we all will make the choice, that’s just what it is, we choose to sin. We are all responsible. In the same way those who choose to sin are condemned (which is, by the way, everyone), those who choose Jesus are forgiven. It is not automatic. As great as salvation is, you still must make the choice. Follow Jesus, give Him your life, make Him your Lord… you’ll never regret it!
