Is anyone wise, clever or powerful enough to escape the corruption of sin? No! As Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones proclaims from Genesis 3, the power of sin over the world can be seen in the garden when Adam and Eve rejected God’s commands, lived by their own desires and plunged the world into disastrous sin. Ever since then, men reject the truth of Christianity claiming that it is irrational, intellectually inadequate, and foolish. Man, in his sinful pride and arrogance seeks to judge God’s Word using his intellect and mind. But according to Scripture, all men are slaves to sin and are born wholly corrupt. For only by God’s grace can those born in Adam receive new eyes and a new mind to see and know God rightly. It is not up to man and his reasoning, but to God and his infinite grace that he grants to those whom he has given to Christ Jesus. This is the heart of the gospel that God promised to Adam and Eve when he said that the seed of the women would crush the seed of the serpent once and for all. Christ was born of a woman and died upon the cross so that all who repent and believe upon his name will be saved and made inheritors of life everlasting.

About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
