Not Good By Nature
What does it mean to be born into Sin?
All these Scriptures below coincide with each other Concerning Mankind's Sinful Nature.
•Genesis 8:21 *[This verse comes in right after God flooded the Earth and started everything over with Noah and His family] - And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, ALTHOUGH THE IMAGINATION OF MAN'S HEART IS EVIL FROM HIS YOUTH; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.
•Romans 5;12 Implies all Mankind sinned through One Man, (When Adam sinned all human being sinned with Him in God's eyes.)
• Ephesians 2;3 By Nature we are children of wrath. (Which could mean by our own *evil nature we are deserving of wrath from God) but what is unmistakable is by nature we are something NOT Good.
All of this concerning these Scriptures: Genesis 8:21, Romans 5; 12,Ephesians 2; 3 to suggest point 1;
That when Adam sinned, to God all mankind sinned. Thus all mankind are considered Sinners from Conception because of Adam's Sin because when Adam sinned according to God we all sinned with Him even though none of us were born yet.
Also point 2: By Nature we have something about us and/or in us that is not good. (Nature being the inherent character or basic Constitution or essence of a thing) This is from Birth and could mean it's hereditary from our our first Ancestral Father, Adam, and passed through the Seed of all males/men
We also learn that mankind from even Childhood has an evil heart and intent, with an evil imagination.
So it is made plain, that we, all Mankind (Human beings) no matter how old or young have sinned through Adam's sin therefore we are all Sinners from Conception in the womb not by initial act but at least definitely by Imputation and Representation of Adam. Therefore all human beings by nature are not good and from childhood has an evil heart imagining to do evil, and does not have to be taught evil and ungodliness because it is already in them or with them in some way by nature from Childhood and it does not have to be learned.
This means No One is Heaven worthy, we all are unclean & not good inwardly from birth and have evil thoughts & hearts starting as a kid, and Revelation 21; 27 says nothing unclean shall ever enter God's Paradise.
✓ This is why New Birth, a New Heart, and New Creaturehood is so important because we must be cleansed from our old selves/nature's that we came into this world with. And Faith in Christ and Repentance opens the door to such blessed newness. Otherwise we remain Unclean & Unacceptable to God as we have been by nature from a youth not being Good. Which could progress and lead to Eternal Hell later.
##But all the Believing Saints of God thank the Triune God for His glorious Grace that saved us from great doom, uncleanness, and separation. Amen
