We believe that man was created in innocence under the law of his Maker but fell from his sinless and happy state by his voluntary transgression (Gen. 3), in consequence of which, all men are now sinners (Rom. 3:9-19, 5:12, 19; Gal. 3:22), not by constraint, but of choice (John 3:19; Rom. 1:21, 28); and are therefore under just condemnation without defense or excuse (Rom. 1:20, 32, 2:5)
