Genesis 4:7 (NLT) – "You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”
Romans 5:12 (ESV) – 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...
1 John 3:4 (NASB) – Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.
Romans 3:23 (ESV) – ...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
1 John 1:8-10 (MSG) – If we claim that we’re free of sin, we’re only fooling ourselves. A claim like that is errant nonsense. On the other hand, if we admit our sins—make a clean breast of them—he won’t let us down; he’ll be true to himself. He’ll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing. If we claim that we’ve never sinned, we out-and-out contradict God—make a liar out of him. A claim like that only shows off our ignorance of God.
