The impact of the sin of Adam produced a permanent result called the sin nature which, by the way, is passed on to everyone born into this world. This sin nature always opposes God (Ps. 14:1-3) and results in death (Romans 6:23). But is this the final word for humanity? Is there any hope for life in the midst of death? Job asks, “If a man dies, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14) Genesis 5 provides the answer of hope and its core truths necessary for living life from God’s perspective.
