This is an excellent bible study which gives solid scriptural proof that man is not born in sin with a sin nature. When we ask the question, "What makes human beings sin?" the vast majority of Christians have the understanding that we are born "in sin" with a "sin nature", or an "Adamic nature", which is inherently evil. The idea is that when Adam sinned and became corrupt, he passed his sinful nature on to his children, and so it has been passed down through the generations to all who were born after. This is a deception of the Devil, and this study will show that it is from the word of God. But why would the Devil want us to believe such a thing? Simply because by getting us to believe this he can keep us in sin. The Devil knows what causes us to sin, and it is sin in our heart (See #4.2). The way to remove sin from our heart is repentance, and when we repent we can be free from sin. However, we cannot repent of a "sin nature", because it is not our doing if God created us this way. Thus he has given man a reason to believe that he will never be totally free from sin in this life, and many Christians believe this lie. So when they sin, instead of repenting out the root cause of the trouble, they make the excuse, "I was born in sin", and accept the fact that they will always struggle with it. This deception has to be removed from the true church for it to press on to perfection, and it is hoped that those who seriously study this teaching will come to the true understanding that we can make perfection by God's grace, as the scripture says.
(Matthew 5:48) "You be therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect."
(Colossians 1:28) "that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:"
(Colossians 4:12) "that you may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God."
(James 1:4) "that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing."
