VI. HAMARTIOLOGY Doctrine of Sin or Teaching on Sin

 How sin came into existence, the consequences and the destruction to God's creation

Sin originated with Lucifer when he acted with pride in rebellion against God in heaven, (Isa. 14:12-17, Ezek. 28:11-19). Sin entered earth when Adam willfully disobeyed God by eating of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, (Gen. 3:6; I Tim. 2:14).  Since all men were in Adam, all became guilty, (Gen. 4:6-26; Rom. 5:12). Sin corrupted man so that he is totally depraved that nothing of himself or in himself can commend him to God (Rom. 3:23).  Death is the result of sin and all are born sinners, dead in transgression and sin, (Eph. 2:1). Because of sin, Satan was cursed and man separated from God and from the benefits which God desired for man. The Eternal State is punishment for the unsaved, (Matt. 25:41, 46; John 3:36; Jude 7) Man is born condemned and rejection of God's provision leaves the results of the condemnation on the individual person who rejects God's provision in Christ Jesus the Lord, (John 3:18-21).

  1. Sin causes eternal death (Rev. 20:14; Matt. 25:41; 2 Thess. 1:9; Jude 7).
