why are we all sinners, rather than the beloved saints?

if im not supposed to sin, why am i made of it?

there are at least 5 laws by the book i don’t abide by, it makes me inquisitive

reprimanding commands telling me what not to say, to do, to be

all from just 6000 years in history

yet it all disappears when creation comes along

they sing their divine birdsongs

my prologue full of suffering prolonged

according to the bible, im satans impersonation

and its imperative that they get rid of my intoxication

so i can’t inebriate with expired rum the people who betrayed

the liars, the traitors, even the scheming saints

the liars, the traitors, even the scheming saints

all can get away with it

while they brainwash me and leave me to the streets

to wait for the pronunciation of my expiration

was it assassination, or a simple execution?

pull the curtains, quiet down, someone got terminated

oh they sinned? they broke a rule? that’s deserved extermination

it’s cruel how they think cessation is the way of satisfaction

when the creation of man is their only complication

so why are we all sinners when the holy trinity disapproves?

we're sinners because we're human. it's human nature to be selfish and to harm others (on purpose or on accident). the saints were sinners to because they were human, which is why they are often used as role models for us. saint paul persecuted followers of Christ before his conversion. he was human, so he wasn't without sin. that's why humans need God. God is perfect and sinless, so he can help us work towards being better, sinning less. to be called a sinner isn't to be damned, it's to make note of our eventual shortcomings because we're imperfect. the Bible doesn't say you're like Satan, actually much the opposite. it says we are all made in the image of God, and that we are God's most loved creation despite being imperfect.

We are sinners because we inherited the curse of it from Adam and Eve. However, we are not doomed to sin. The Bible says in John 3: 16-20 “ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved”. This is to say that once you place your faith in Jesus, you are saved. And once you are saved, you are no longer bound to sin. However, as humans, we are cursed with the flesh. By that, I mean we are still very vulnerable and prone to temptation, which no man has resisted forever except the Lord. There is hope! God does not hate you, He loves you! I really hope you are well and I pray that this comment can be a blessing to you. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you want to discuss this matter more :)
