Fall of Humanity

Genesis 3:1-19

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. – Genesis 3:6

Ever wondered how we start to sin? In this verse, God revealed it all starts from one look. Here’s the anatomy of sin: S.T.A.G.

  1. See
  2. Think
  3. Acquire
  4. Give

Way back in high school or college. I remember myself watching pornography. At first glance (‘see’) it seems harmless. It’s just like any movie with people not having clothes on. The more I look at the photos or titles of the movie, the more I ‘think’ about it. After thinking about it and decided on a tape, (back then it was in VHS or betamax format) I decide to ‘acquire’ it and watch it. Anyway, after acquiring and watching it, I ‘give’ or share it with my buddies.

May God forgive me for all my transgressions! For I really don’t know how many times I’ve stumbled.

Now do you see how sin not only corrupts one person? Most of the time you take someone with you when you sin.

I pray you learned from my mistakes and vow to try not to sin again. It’s going to be difficult, but with God’s grace everything is possible.

Glory to God.

    people sin because they are sinners
    sinners, because of Adam’s sin.

    “For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many”
    – Romans 5:17

    so a sinner sins,
    a sinner not because of sin, but of Adam’s sin

    the more a person tries to not sin, the more they will sin.
