Something is wrong inside of us. Though God desires for us to live the best kind of life full of beauty and good, our desires lead us astray. Like a starving man hungers for bread, our fallen nature hungers for sin. Even though we know it is wrong we long for the promised treasures of sin. Even though we know it will hurt us in the end, often we do not say no. Like an addict we are hooked.
It wasn’t always this way. Once the first humans walked with God and did not desire sin they way we do today. But now our very nature is against God. Our flesh want to sin, and we do not need any external pressure or demonic influence to make us do it.
