The heart of man is not basically good, but basically sinful. That is why the Proverbs say, “But a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.” Proverbs 29:15
Sin entered the world when Lucifer tempted mankind to sin.
Lucifer is a created being and was the chief of the angels. He was created as the anointed cherub with magnificent beauty.
But he became lifted up in pride and arrogance; as we see in Isaiah 14:12-20.
In these statements by Lucifer that we see in Isaiah, we see the three roots of sin as is described in 1 John 2:16.
- The lust of the flesh
- The lust of the eyes
- The pride of life
By understanding these three roots of sin, we will understand the evil in the world today.
