Nature of Humanity 

Man and woman were created in the image of God, yet chose to rebel against God's authority. Hence the entire human race came under the curse of sin, completely separated from God, and in need of receiving spiritual life so as to be restored in relationship with God and fulfill the purpose for which mankind was created. Genesis 3:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:12, 18, Ephesians 2:1-3
