Q. 21. Into what estate did the fall bring mankind?

A. The fall brought mankind into an estate of sin and misery.

Psalms 51:5  Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Romans 5:18-19  Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.   For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.

Isaiah 64:6  We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
