Inward Corruption and Guilt

Still They Speak

“Not only does sin involve an inward pollution and corruption of man’s heart, but in addition, it involves guilt before God. When we say that a man is guilty before God what we mean is that he is liable to censure and to punishment from God. Realizing that God will punish them and rebuke them for what they have done Adam and Eve seek to hide from Him. The knowledge of good and evil, as they, fallen sinful creatures, now possessed it, awakened their conscience, and they knew that God is just and must punish sin. To hide from His presence seems the only thing to do.” Edward J. Young “Genesis 3” (Banner of Truth) p. 75
