Theology for Kids: Why are People Sinners?

Why are People Sinners?

After God made man and woman, they disobeyed Him. Even though God was very good to them, they were not grateful. They ate the fruit that God said they couldn’t eat (Gen. 3:6). After they disobeyed God, they changed from being holy and happy to being sinful and sad. This leaves every single person in a terrible and helpless situation. Every person is a sinner (Rom. 3:23) and every person must be judged (Acts 17:31) and punished by God (John 3:36). But, there is good news! More next time.

Adam and Eve disobeyed God
So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate (Genesis 3:6)
Every person is a sinner
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)
Every Person deserves to be judged and punished by God
Because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead (Acts 17:31)
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him (John 3:36)
