Hello Church Family,
New City Catechism Question 14
Did God create us unable to keep his law?
No, but because of the disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, all of creation is fallen; we are all born in sin and guilt, corrupt in our nature and unable to keep God’s law.
The Bible verse associated with this question is Romans 5:12: “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.”
This verse explains that Adam was our representative, and when he sinned he plunged himself and all his offspring into an endless cycle of sin and death. Now, it might not seem fair to us that we are affected by Adam’s actions, however, by the same principal of representation, by faith Jesus can be our new representative. 1 Cor. 15:22: “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.”
Praise God that He sent His Son Jesus to be the new head of the human race!
