Chap. vi. Of the fall of man of sin and of the punishment thereof S


OUR first parents being seduced by the subtilty and temptation of Satan sinned in eating the forbidden fruit This their sin God was pleased according to his wise and holy councill to permit having purposed to order it to his own glory


BY this sin they fell from their originall righteousness and communion with God and so became dead in sin and wholly defiled in all the faculties and parts of soul and body


THEY being the root of all mankind the guilt of this sin was imputed and the same death in sin and corrupted nature conveyed to all their posterity descending from them by ordinary generation


FROM this originall corruption whereby we are utterly indisposed disabled and made opposite to all good and wholly inclined to all evil do proceed all actuall transgressions


THIS corruption of nature during this life doth remain in those that are regenerated and although it be through Christ pardoned and mortified yet both it self and all the motions thereof are truly and properly sin


EVERY sin both original and actuall being a transgression of the righteous law of God and contrary thereunto doth in its own nature bring guilt upon the sinner whereby he is bound over to the wrath of God and curse of the law and so made subject to death with all miseries spirituall temporall and eternall
