Adam was a direct creation of God; he was the son of God and the only human who bore that title.

  •  The rest of mankind are sons of Adam (Deuteronomy 32:8).
  • Adam was tempted in the Garden of Eden, and he sinned (Genesis 3 & Luke 3:38).
  • The actions of Adam caused sin to enter into the world, and death by sin. 
  • Death passed upon all men, for all have sinned (Romans 5:12).
  • We are all born with a sin nature. We are tempted to sin by the devil, the world, and our flesh (Ephesians 2:1-3).
  • All of mankind who have reached the age of moral responsibility are sinners and are in need of salvation.
  • God made man in His image, distinct from all other forms of life on Earth. Man is unique in that he has a soul. 
  • Man was given dominion over all the animals on earth (Genesis 1:26-28).
