So why do so many teach it is man's nature to sin when Paul says it is "against nature" to do so? Did you even know that this is what Paul taught? Or did you just believe your "pastor" instead when he told you the Bible says men sin because they all have a sin nature that governs their choices?

This is also why Paul taught exhaustively on the subject of salvation by works, in contrast to salvation by grace through faith not of works. Because he wanted to make sure we did not confuse works as having anything to do with salvation.

Works have nothing to do with man's need for a savior. All men need for salvation is the presence of God, His glory, in them that only comes by the gift of the new birth Jesus spoke of in John3:1-8. And that presence comes simply by asking.

God made man for fellowship. So in His plan He designed a way for men to know Him. And that way is Jesus. 

But, because all men are born with the same flesh Adam had when he was made this was at first not possible. So this is what causes man's need for Jesus. Not bad works imputed or not.

It is because man is "not spiritual, but natural" just as Adam was when he was made as Paul taught in 1Cor.15:45-50 that all men are in need of God's glory which is the presence of God. Because the natural is only for this world. And only those who are spiritual will inherit the kingdom of God. And we are only made spiritual by the spirit birth.

Now beginning in Rom.1:26 after first giving an explanation about who Jesus is, his apostleship, and how the creation itself leaves men without excuse who reject God, Paul says that all the horrible behaviors and choices made by some are actually "against nature". And in Rom.2:14 Paul says that unbelieving Gentiles who never had the law to instruct them to, "do unto others as they would have them do unto them", "by nature". And unlike the believers in sin nature who attempt to promote their ungodly beliefs using passages that do not even use the word nature, Paul actually uses the word nature in these passages.

Saying in Rom.1, "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Rom.1:26-32

And again in Rom.2 saying, "For there is no respect of persons with God.

For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; for not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel." Rom.2:11-16

All these bad behaviors that are mentioned in Rom.1 Paul taught are against the nature God made men with. And in Rom.2 the good behaviors were because of it. This is the opposite from what is taught in virtually every so called "christian" church.

These say that because the Psalmist said "there are none that seek after God. No not one", or because Rom.3:23 says "all have sinned", this shows there is a depravity of man that is by nature and not by choice. Because they say it means every person everywhere was not seeking God, and all have sinned, men are sinners by nature.

But, when reading what Psalm14 and 53 in context it is clear that he was not speaking of himself. But, of the fool that said in his heart there is no God. Because David was not only seeking after God as were so many others. God was also using them to speak to His people Israel.

Isn't it interesting how these prophets of Moloch quote these scriptures out of context? Using verses like those found in Ps.51 and Rom.7 to say men are born with a sin nature. When that phrase is nowhere found in those scriptures. Nor even anywhere in the entire Bible. And the same person tells us that when God forms us in the womb "we are fearfully and wonderfully made"?

So when we are objective with the scriptures allowing them to tell us what God means we can see that David was referring to his bad behavior with Bathsheba in Ps.51. Not his nature.

We can see an example of a prophet who thought he was the only one left who was seeking God in 1Kings19 when the discouraged Elijah said, "I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away." But, the Lord responded saying, "Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him."

In this we see that God always reserves a remnant. And that remnant is not who is being referred to in these passages. But, these are those who act according to their nature, and in relationship with God, follow His instructions. And that those who bow to Baal do so against the nature God gave them for which nature the Psalmist said again, "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Ps.139:13,14

This is what the Bible teaches about man's nature. Not a predilection toward sin. But, rather man's nature is one that naturally does unto others as they would have others do to them. 

So how did so many get this so wrong for so long? It is because they do not believe what the Bible says. They believe what they have been told it says in seminaries and churches that teach the lies that spawned from Augustine and the Gnostics that went before him. And after being trained in these lies they go out and spread those lies far and wide. Rather than the truth from the scriptures. Both deceived and deceiving.

This is why Paul knew that evil men would wax worse and worse. Not because it was in their nature to do so. But, because evil men choose the evil of their own free will and so do that which is against nature.

This is not to say that men are naturally good. But, only that men are natural, not spiritual by nature. Leaving them neutral in the area of sin and righteousness. Men relate to the natural world around them with what God has equipped them with. Free will, dominion, the knowledge of good and evil, and the natural senses.

By these men choose how they will relate to the natural world that God has placed them in. Some will choose to do what is in compliance with their God given nature to see that doing unto others as they would have others do unto them is a most agreeable relationship. While others choose to lord over others and participate in an over desire that leads them into relationships that are against nature.

These are the relationships and behaviors that are against man's nature as Paul defines them in Rom.1:26-32. These are where unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, and unmerciful come from.

But, if men think and do what is their nature to do then they will do by nature what is written in the law just as Paul said in Rom.2:14. Because when choosing in accordance with our nature the conscience bears witness so their thoughts are the mean while accusing or else excusing one another.

So Paul says that by nature and the knowledge of good and evil man's conscience now able to see the difference between the right and the wrong makes his choices accordingly. Choosing the good because by nature he has learned that when he does to others as he would have others do to him things go much better for everyone. Something the law was given to help Israel with.

But, when he chooses to do what Paul says is against his nature he becomes hardened and he finds himself hurting himself and others doing those things that are described in Rom.1:26-32. Things that are against his nature to do.

So man does not do things by nature that cause him and others harm. Those things are against his nature. But, because he has free will he can make those harmful choices against his nature if he wants to.

But, he can not blame it on a sin nature he inherited from Adam. As they say, "that dog won't hunt" if we believe what the scriptures plainly say. Because the scriptures say that men have the same nature as the one God made Adam with at the beginning. A nature that does unto others as we would have them do unto us. A nature that sees from the creation that there is a Creator.

So that the sin nature excuse of "I was born this way" that men use to show it isn't their fault when they do not believe in the Creator and do things that are harmful, is clearly a non starter. Because God says by their nature they do see. And that it is against man's nature to ignore it.

Men were made to receive a birthright from the Creator. That birthright has become available to those who choose, according to their nature rather than against it, to trust in the Creator rather than the created thing. To trust in Jesus who joined with man in our mortality. Who by conquering death by His resurrection made it so we could join with Him in immortality.

It is not man's nature that separates him from God. It is our choice to do what is against that nature that does this. So as Joshua told the Israelites, choose you this day who you will serve. Whether it be the created thing. Or the Creator. Jesus' death and resurrection has provided all that you need for immortal life. So do what is in your nature to do by recognizing from creation that there is a Creator whose name is Jesus. Trust in Him and His resurrection and immortality will be yours.

Do this, and I will see you there or in the air!
