A Man is Naturally Identified as A Sinner from his Birth
Job 14:1 (KJB) Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
All mankind is naturally born a sinner.
Sinning comes naturally for every man.
Being moral, godly, and righteous is not included in the innate character of any man, but being immoral, evil, and wicked is certainly prominent and prolific in his natural life.
A man is not born an alcoholic.
A man is not born a Sodomite.
A man is not born a murderer.
A man is not born an adulterer.
A man is not born a thief.
A man is born a sinner, and though he chooses to sin in a variety of ways and situations, he is not to be simply “known” or identified by his individual sin. Rather he is simply known as a sinner in need of a Savior. A man who chooses to continue in sin once it is revealed as sin to him does personally choose to identify with the dark nature of satan and to stand in firm opposition to the holiness and righteousness of God.
Likewise, a child of God is not known by his works, but in his new spiritual identity which rests personally and solely in Christ.
