What is Our Basic Human Nature?

  • We are born basically good with a thin veneer of bad.
  • We are born basically neutral and made good or bad by conditioning.
  • We are born basically bad with a thin veneer of good.
  • The Biblical view: Originally created totally good, but because of the Fall, now born hopelessly fallen.
the fall
The Fall

Man sinned by disobeying God; thus he was alienated from his

Creator. That historic fall brought all mankind under divine

condemnation. Man’s nature is corrupted, and he is thus totally

unable to please God.

  • What is sin

1. Ignorance

2. Illusion

3. Incomplete evolution

4. Independence or selfishness

5. Lack of conformity to God’s perfect character

6. Lawlessness: desire to transgress restriction

Sin is any failure to conform to the moral law of god in act, attitude, or nature.

the fall has formed a barrier
The Fall has formed a barrier
  • Because of God’s perfectly pure righteousness, He cannot be in intimate fellowship with anyone who is contaminated with the filth of sin. Isaiah 64:6, 59:1-2; Romans 3:19-20; and James 2:10.
  • The real question is not, “How can a loving God send anyone to hell?” Rather, from God’s perspective, “How can a righteous God allow any sinner into heaven?”
  • To simply embrace sinful people in an unaltered condition would be to compromise His own nature—He’d cease to be God.
  • God’s absolute holiness + our sin=offense to God’s nature. God’s justice demands penalty=spiritual and physical death.
slavery to satan and sin and sin nature
Slavery to Satan and Sin and Sin nature
  • Slavery to Satan and Sin:1 John 5:19; Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 6:17,20; John 8:33,34
  • Everyone who does not know Christ has a hopeless addiction; is a slave to sin.
  • Sin Nature: Ephesians 2:3, Jeremiah 17:9, Mark 7:20-23. Our tendency from birth toward wrong in thought, word, and deed.
  • Participation in sin weakens our perception of it.
  • We are not sinners because we sin, rather we sin because we are sinners. Born with a sin nature.
spiritual death
Spiritual Death
  • Colossians 2:13, Ephesians 2:1, Romans 5:12
  • Spiritual death is just as real, though not just as obvious as physical death.
  • It means we are separated form God who is the source of all life.
  • The result of these 4 barriers is that we are totally unable to please God.
    • Total depravity
    • We are not worthless-We are made in God’s image
    • The corruption of sin that extends to all parts of men such that there is nothing with in man that can give him merit in Gods eye.
