Original Sin

SCRIPTURE PASSAGES DEALING WITH THE BIBLE-TEACHING OF "ORIGINAL SIN," that human nature apart from God's working is totally corrupt, inherited from Adam through our parents. It has made us spiritually blind, dead, and enemies of God, full of evil desires and with no understanding of spiritual things from God without HIS acting to change the condition. The condition makes people afraid concerning the things of God, wanting to run away from Him rather than turn towards Him.
