What does the Bible say about the universality of sin?

1 John 1:8 8If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

1 John 1:10 10If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

Romans 3:10-12 10As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one; 11there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. 12All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."

Mini Frederick Thomas Rom 3:4 ...let God be true...
Good day, Jack, 

My findings is this: God created the first Adam and Jesus our Christ became the second Adam for us.

The first Adam got us all into trouble without our permission and the second Adam got us all out of that mess without our approval. 

Romans 5:19
"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous."

1 Corinthians 15:21
"For since by man (Adam) came death, by man (Jesus) came also the resurrection of the dead."

The field is wide on this your question. In a nutshell, that's how we got position from both Adams.

Shalom 



Frederick
