O Felix Culpa! (Romans 5:12-21)Eric Peterman, February 25, 2018
Part of the Justification of the Sinner Before God series, taught at a Sunday Morning service
O Felix Culpa! - Oh Happy Fault! The universal domination of sin and death. The glorious freedom of God's grace in the shed blood of His Son.
Not the name of a rock band or movie star. It is Latin for, “Happy fault!” - and it says that even though Adam's fall into sin – and thus, ours, brought the horror of death and the domination of sin into human experience, it also brought the grace of God in redemption from those, by Christ's blood by faith. What we are becoming and shall be because of grace is orders of magnitude greater and freer than Adam was before his fall!

12Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. 15But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV)
