The Everlasting Covenant


Effect of the Curse

The curse reveals itself in weakness of the body, and in viciousness of character. One word covers the whole case, namely, degeneration. Viciousness is really weakness, for the carnal mind cannot be subject to the law of God, and cannot please Him. 3 Even when awakened to a sense of the sinfulness of sin, the man cannot do that which he would. 4 It was when we were “without strength,” that Christ died for the ungodly. 5 Man’s weakness shows itself chiefly in depraved morals, and the weakness of body is only a natural consequence.
