Chapter 3. Of Original Sin
By which transgression, commonly called Original
Sin, was the image of God utterly defaced in man; and he and his
posterity of nature became enemies to God, slaves to Satan, and
servants to sin;1010
Ps. 51:5; Rom. 5:10; 7:5; 2 Tim. 2:26; Eph. 2:1-3.
insomuch that death everlasting has had, and
shall have, power and dominion over all that have not been, are
not, or shall not be regenerated from above: which regeneration is
wrought by the power of the Holy Ghost, working in the hearts of
the elect of God an assured faith in the promise of God, revealed
to us in his word; by which faith we apprehend Christ Jesus, with
the graces and benefits promised in him.1111
Rom. 5:14,21; 6:23; John 3:5; Rom. 5:1; Phil. 1:29.
