Romans 5:12–14 (ESV)
Death in Adam, Life in Christ
12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— 13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. 14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.

Well, it can’t be said any more clear than here that “death spread to all men because all sinned.”  When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, they sinned and sin entered the world.  Not just sin, but “original sin”.  Sin that we are born with... hereditary sin.  The Lutheran Study Bible states: “Death is a consequence of sin.  Parents have transmitted mortality to their children since the fall.   Adam’s fall brought sin to all humanity. We inherited his guilt and the desire to sin. Here, Paul stops abruptly, confronting us with the reality of original sin and our guilt. “This hereditary sin is such a deep corruption of nature that no reason can understand it. Rather, it must be believed from the revelation of Scripture” (SA III I 3)

I pray: O Lord, with out you, there is no hope.  But you came with a plan of Salvation to forgive us and renew us.  Your plan washes our sin away through the gift of baptism.  It even washes away stubborn stains such as original sin.  You are our hope and our Salvation.  Amen.
