Little Sinners

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. – Ps 51:5

The Bible is absolutely crystal clear that all children are sinners from conception…all children. The principle of iniquity is embedded in the human race. Children are born morally corrupt. They are born with an irresistible bent toward evil. And any notion that children are born morally neutral and free from a predisposition to sin is absolutely contrary to Scripture.

All humans are born in sin. If infants were not sinful, if they were not morally corrupt, then they wouldn’t die. If they were born innocent or pure or morally neutral there would be no basis for their death. The very fact that they die indicates that the disease of sin is there in them because sin is the killer. It is in their inherited sin nature that the seeds of death are planted.

–  John MacArthur, American pastor and author, 1939 –
