THE NATURE AND CHARACTER OF FALLEN MAN

05 Jul

SEVEN FUNDAMENTALS OF THE CROSS

ONE: THE NECESSITY OF THE CROSS

III. THE NATURE AND CHARACTER OF FALLEN MAN

By: Brother Cliff

The nature and character of fallen man: the horror and depravity of sin.

Sin: deceived, selfish, lust, rebellious, pride, fear, guilt and shame.

Death: darkness, chaos, lies, anger, abortion, theft, war, disease.

Fallen man is deceived by sin. He is selfishly rebellious, prideful in lust, and driven by fear, anger, guilt and shame. He dwells in confusion and chaos; ever bound by lies. Sinful man is the prisoner of Satan.

Hopelessly captive; the servant of sin fuels and promotes death and the kingdom of darkness every day of their life.

1Jn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

1Jn 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
