Mankind is born with a sinful nature. The reason we are born sinners is not because of anything we did. It is because of who we are related to.
We were all born in Adam, therefore, we are all born in sin. That’s why nobody had to teach us to sin. Perhaps you have noticed that. Sin comes naturally because of the carnal nature we were born with.
The sinful nature really begins to surface about the time a child is 2 years of age (have you heard about the terrible twos?). We may think our little boy or girl is so precious, then they start acting like the devil.
