Why Do People Sin?

Why do people sin?

Romans 7:19-20 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.


Did You Ever Ask Yourself, Why Do People Sin?

Why do people sin? It started in the Garden of Eden, and the repercussions have been active since then!

Why Do People Sin…

The question ought not to be why do people sin, the question ought to be why not? I have been partaking in sin my entire life (unfortunately you have too).

To answer the question why do people sin, we need to understand who we are by nature.

Why do people sin?

We sin because we are sinners, and that is what people do naturally. Besides that, yes, there is pleasure in sin. The pleasure is short term, but the pain it leaves behind lingers on.

We sin with our thoughts, words, and deeds! Sin comes from the disobedience of Adam and Eve original sin in the Garden, and it has followed us to the present time in our society. 

When we trust God to be our Lord and Savior, we no longer have to bear the consequence for our sin, Jesus has already done that for us on the cross, all we need to do is to accept the payment that Jesus has paid for our sins.

Although when we do sin from time to time, we need to confess our sin because God is faithful and will forgive us of our sins. We need to turn away from our sin and walk closer with God. Learn more about why people sin! ~ Bill Greguska

Sin Keeps Us From God; There Are Two Types Of Sin

  1. How we sin is by not doing something that we ought to do is called a sin of omission that is more with words and deeds.
  2. How we also sin is by doing something that God instructs us not to do is called a sin of commission which is with thoughts, words, deeds.

Are You A Good Enough To Be Able To Get Into Heaven?

If you are lost and want to get out of the confusion of sin, then pray to God to help you. Then open His word the Bible for some answers!

All of this is “original sin,” the sin that is hardwired in us as a result of Adam’s sin. So, we keep sinning, because we can’t help it! You ask yourself, why do people sin? Everything from seemingly innocent untruths to murder.

There is worse news than that! Those who have not placed their faith in Jesus Christ must pay the penalty for these personal sins, as well as inherited and any other transgressions. There are different types of sin, but all sin is sin in God’s eye, it is a refusal to do God’s will.
