Are babies born good or are they born sinners?
Here's the answer:
The Bible tells us that all babies are born sinners.
Have you ever seen a newborn baby covered in a cute little blanket? The baby looks so cute and innocent. While we might think babies are born good, they are not. Nobody is born "good." The Bible tells us that we are all born with a sinful nature (Psalm 51:5).
All people are born sinners due to Adam and Eve’s fall in the Garden (Romans 5:12). Since Adam and Eve disobeyed God, we all have an inherited sinful nature. This means that even babies are automatically born sinners. As babies get older and become children, we can more clearly see the sinful nature showing up.
Babies are born sinners just like all of us, but we can all be made right with God by believing in Jesus. God loves us SO much that He sent His only Son to die for our sins (John 3:16). When we believe in Jesus, the Father forgives our sins and gives us a new life with Him forever.
"Sin entered the world because one man sinned. And death came because of sin. Everyone sinned, so death came to all people" (Romans 5:12).
"I know I’ve been a sinner ever since I was born. I’ve been a sinner ever since my mother became pregnant with me" (Psalm 51:5).
