WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF SIN
Scripture Reading: Romans 5:12-21
Imputed Sin= the first result of Adam's sin is imputed sin upon all, which results in death. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). How can it be that by the act of one perfect sinless man (Lord Jesus Christ) on the cross that the whole human race can be saved by believing in Him? It is by the same principle that the whole human race was lost by the disobedient act of one man (Adam).
From Romans 5:12-21 we can conclude that:
1. Sin entered mankind through one man, Adam (VS.12). The record of Adam's disobedience and fall is recorded in Genesis Chapter 3. Adam and Eve were placed in the garden of Eden in innocency, and were tested with respect to obedience to God's command concerning eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They failed this test and disobeyed and sin entered the world.
2. Death was the result of sin (vs. 12). In Gen 2:17 God said to Adam... of the tree of the knowledgeof good and evil; thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shall surely die." This penalty for sin was a twofold death-- physical, and spiritual. Death is separation. Physical death is the separation of the body from the soul and spirit. Spiritual death is separation from God.
