3. Sin entered our world through one man, Adam. (Romans 5:12 Voice)

God warned Adam:

Eat freely from any and all trees in the garden; I only require that you abstain from eating the fruit of one tree—the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Beware: the day you eat the fruit of this tree, you will certainly die. (Genesis 2:16-17 Voice)

Adam sinned and then this happened:

. . . as sin came into the world through one man, and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or to escape its power] because all men sinned. (Romans 5:12 AMPC emphasis added)

4. According to Psalms 51:5, “Indeed, I was guilty when I was born; I was sinful when my mother conceived me. (HCSB)

Increasingly, many consider the Bible irrelevant and obsolete. 

Some believe the concept of right and wrong is subjective.

Or maybe it all depends on the person’s motivation.

Others think good and evil don’t exist at all.

Actual comments on this Youtube video:

J.G. “There is no such thing as good and evil. They are man-made concepts. What is good for one person is evil for another, and vice versa.”

G.M. “As a general question about the general population mental illness isn’t a factor. Is good or bad inherent? We’re complicated creatures. We have multiple layers. We have good intentions but in a desperate situation act in self interest. We’re animals. We love bloodshed and if it weren’t for laws put into place to police us, we wouldn’t survive at all.”

S.L. “The only people who say people are inherently evil are the religious, and usually through the doctrine of original sin.  I find this a disgusting view and vile sense of morality to hold, and one that could only be held by someone whose morals were adapted from a biblical framework.  I’m not saying that there are not evil people in this world, but i think its developed through environmental factors and perhaps a predisposition towards evil, although until it is proven, simply asserting people are inherently evil is a negative, pessimistic position to hold.”

E.C. “Good and evil is subjective. There is only cause and effect. For a community to get along with each other laws, religions and dictatorships were formed. However it is still subjective reasoning disguised as objective morality.”

>This website< lists scripture verses about being born with a sin nature.

At Yale, scientists conducted a study of infants to look for signs of an innate understanding of morality. Based on their finding, 70% of babies recognized and demonstrated a preference for kindness. 

I believe we are born worshiping ourselves,

. . . and that’s why Jesus said the two most important commandments are to love God and love others. (Matthew 22:37-39) 

I also believe we are born knowing the difference between good and evil. We want to be treated with generosity, love, and kindness because we are self-centered by nature. When we treat others well, it’s often because we want them to like us or they are nice to us.

All of us had to have the natural birth to receive the sinful nature, and only those who are born from above by putting their total faith in what Christ has done for them are recipients of the free gift of righteousness. Andrew Wommack’s Living Commentary.
