SINFUL CONDITION OF MAN

Oh, Thou, who Man of baser Earth didst make,
And who with Eden didst devise the Snake;
For all the Sin wherewith the Face of Man
Is blackend, Mans Forgiveness give and take!

--Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

Romans 5:12-14
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

Romans 7:14-20
For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do, I allow not: for that which I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me: but how to perform that which is good I find not. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Romans 7:21-23
I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God in my inward man: but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Among whom we also had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
