The truth about God is out there. Natural or general revelation has always been available to man, demonstrating His eternal power and nature.
Romans 1:18 begins a passage recording the “devolving” of the human race, beginning with the suppression of the truth in unrighteousness.
Confession is the cure for sin in the life of a Christian. But many euphemisms have replaced “sin” in the pseudo-confessions of people today. David’s psalm of confession corrects this error.
The ultimate sin is the sin of unbelief. Failure to believe God is the essence of sin, and continuance in unbelief dooms the sinner.
Sin is what God says it is, not what man supposes or invents. God’s definition of sin is missing the mark, stepping over the line, failure to believe Him (Rom. 3:23, 1 John 3:4, Heb.3:12).
In a relatively short time sin had so permeated the human race and filled the earth with violence that judgment had to follow. Genesis 6 records God’s judgment of the Flood that scoured the earth.
Following the Fall in the Garden of Eden, sin rapidly grew to homicide! Genesis 4 records the murder of Abel by his brother Cain.
Genesis 3 reveals two things about the human condition: the terrible curse of sin and the marvelous grace of God!
The Savior seeks lost sinners! But when time comes for confession, both Adam and Eve blame others. Nothing has changed among sinners before a righteous God!
Genesis 3 records some immediate results of sin by Adam and Eve. Their relationship with God was instantly broken and they recognized their nakedness. Their fellowship with Christ was shattered and they tried to hide from Him.
