FRUITS OF SIN
Gen. 3:7. And eyes of them both were opened, and they know that
they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made
themselves aprons. 8. And they heard the voice of the LORD God
walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his
wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst tho
trees of the garden. 9. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and
said unto him, Where art thou 10. And he said, I heard thy voice
in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid
myself. 11. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast
thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou
shouldest not eat? 12. And the man said, The woman whom thou
gayest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou
hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did
eat. 14. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou
hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every
beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt
thou eat all the days of thy life: 15. And I will put enmity
between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it
shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 16. Unto
the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy
conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy
desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. 17.
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice
of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded
thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for
thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy
life: 18. Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee;
and thou shalt eat the herb of the field: 19. In the sweat of thy
face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for
out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt
thou return. 20. And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she
was the mother of all living. 21. Unto Adam also and to his wife
did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. 22. And
the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to
know good and evil and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take
also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23.
Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to
till the ground from whence he was taken. 24. So he drove out the
man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims,
and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of
the tree of life.

Gen. 4:9. And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother?
And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? 10. And he
said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood
crieth unto me from the ground. 11. And now art thou cursed from
the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's
blood from thy hand. 12. When thou tillest the ground, it shall
not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a
vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. 13. And Cain said unto the
LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14. Behold, thou
hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth: and from
thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond
in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that
findeth me shall slay me.
Gen. 6:5. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the
earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart
was only evil continually. 6. And it repented the LORD that he
had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7.
And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from
the face of the earth, both man, and beast, and the creeping
thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have

Rom. 5:12. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world,
and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all
have sinned: 13. (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin
is not imputed when there is no law). 14. Nevertheless death
reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned
after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure
of him that was to come. 15. But not as the offence, so also is
the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead,
much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by
one man, Jesus' Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16. And not as
it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was
by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences
unto justification. 17. For if by one man's offence death reigned
by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of
the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one; Jesus
Christ. 18. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon
all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the
free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19. For
as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the
obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20. Moreover the
law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin
abounded, grace did much more abound: 21. That as sin hath
reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through
righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Cor. 6:9. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit
the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind, 10. Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor
drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the
kingdom of God. 11. And such were some of you: but ye are washed,
but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the
Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

AH THE SUBJECT OF SIN AND ITS FINAL RESULT IS NOT A
PLEASANT TOPIC TO SYUDY, BUT IT IS NEEDFUL THAT WE DO.
FOR ONLY BY STUDYING AND MEDITATING ON SIN CAN WE COME
TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF GOD, THAT GRANTS
MERCY, GRACE, JUSTIFICATION AND FORGIVENESS. WE CANNOT
FULLY UNDERSTAND GOD'S GRACE UNLESS WE UNDERSTAND THE
DEPTH OF SIN AND IF NOT REPENTED OF, THE SURE AND DIRE
