Sermons about Original Sin
This week we continue out series on the book of Romans as Pastor Tim Osborn looks at Romans 5:12-21 for his talk "A Not-So-Fair Fight: Death vs. Life"
In Psalm 51 we are reminded that God renews broken people. King David had committed shocking sins and was confronted by the prophet Nathan. After hearing God's rebuke and judgment, David was utterly broken and in his brokenness he composed this Psalm. In it we see him cry out for God's mercy and depend on him to bring about restoration in his life so that he would once again live for the glory of God.
MAN'S SIN REIGNS IN DEATH: but God’s Grace Reigns unto Eternal Life (Message #9 * Romans 5:12-21) 01-13-2013
1. Contrasting Adam & Christ (Man’s Sin & God’s Grace) (vs12-14, 15, 21; see also 1Co 15:20-28; 45-58) ● Sin came into the world thru one man (Adam) & brought death (vs12-14) ● God’s grace came into the world thru one man (Jesus) reigning through righteousness and leading to eternal life (vs15, 21) a) Adam’s one trespass and the grace of Jesus Christ (v15) ● One man’s trespass caused many to die ● The grace of Jesus abounded for the many b) Judgment after one trespass and God’s free gift after many trespasses (v16) ● Judgment came after one trespass & brought condemnation ● God’s free gift came after many trespasses & brought justification c) The reign of death and the reign of God’s saints (v17; Ro 1:7) ● Death reigns over humanity thru one man (because of Adam’s 1 trespass) ● Saints will reign in life thru one man Jesus Christ (because of God’s grace and free gift of righteousness) d) Adam’s one trespass & Christ’s one act of righteousness (v18) ● Adam’s one trespass led to condemnation for all men ● Christ’s one act of righteousness leads to justification for all men e) The disobedience of Adam and the obedience of Christ (v19) ● By Adam’s disobedience many were made sinners ● By Christ’s obedience the many will be made righteous f) The reign of increasing sin and the reign of God’s abounding grace (vs20-21) ● The law increased the trespass and sin reigned in death ● God’s grace abounded more than the increase of sin – and it reigns in righteousness unto eternal life 2. Stand in and Rejoice in God’s Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ ● Justification: we have peace with God (Ro 5:1; 3:21-26; 8:31-34) God’s Forgiveness: no condemnation/no wrath Reward of the Righteous: welcomed into the family/kingdom of God ● Sanctification: we find purpose and hope in our sufferings, as we are filled with God’s love by the Holy Spirit (Ro 5:2-5; 1:7; 8:35-39) ● Glorification: we will reign with Jesus Christ in eternal life because He has conquered sin & death (Ro 5:9-11, 17, 8:30; 1Co 15:50-58)
The key to holding fast and drawing near when we are tempted to give up and draw back is to possess a clear understanding of Jesus as our great high priest. In Hebrews 4:14-16, the author gives us a clear picture of Jesus and His high priesthood. Specifically, he gives us three reasons why Jesus is our great high priest who is able to help us hold fast to our confession and to draw near to Him with confidence. We will come to see how these three reasons offer hope and help for us in our present difficulties, which fight against our perseverance and kill our confidence in the Son of God.
In 1 Timothy 1:12-17, Paul recounts his conversion and commissioning as an Apostle. In so doing, he reveals the reason why the eternal Son of God came into the world, namely to save sinners. Moreover, Paul sets himself forth as the quintessential example to prove this point! From this passage, we will come to see two vital truths, which remained clear and definite for Paul, namely the greatness of His sin and the greatness of His Savior.

Genesis is not just a structure of reality, or a myth or a chronicle of historical events – it is a memory. It is a story that is concrete and particular in telling about real people in a specific time and place who engaged in irreversible events
An exposition of why the Incarnation was necessary.
An exposition of Galatians 3:19-22 concerning Paul's discussion of the inferiority of the Law (Mosaic) in contrast to the promise (Abrahamic).
The proper biblical view of original sin teaches four things. 1. Adam passed off his sin and guilt to all of humanity. 2. In Adam we all fell and are in need of redemption. 3. We are now by nature sinners and we have the guilt of sin as well deserving eternal wrath. 4. Adam’s sin guarantees actual sin in human beings. Because of our nature we are sinners and will sin and we are guilty before God because of that. It is no excuse.
