The Problem: We Are Born Rebels
The Double Helix of DNA
The Sin-gene Is In Our DNA
David's Prayer of Confession
King David prayed:
Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins.
Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night.
Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight.
You will be proved right in what you say, and your judgment against me is just.
For I was born a sinner — yes, from the moment my mother conceived me. PSALM 51:1-5
