TEXT: GENESIS 3:1-17, 24
God's intention for man at creation was for him to have dominion over all His creation. Satan through his cunning nature deceived man leading to man's disobedience of God's directive at the garden of Eden. Thus through Adam, the inherent inclination to sin entered the human race and human beings became sinners by nature.
Indulging in anything that is contrary to the law or will of God is sinful. We sin when we do what God forbids or do not do what He has commanded.
Thankfully, our sins have been crucified on the cross of Jesus and now by faith in Jesus Christ, we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace.
