'(..) no one is just willingly. Through cowardice or old age or some other weakness, people do indeed object to injustice. But it's obvious that they do so only because they lack the power to do injustice, for the first of them to acquire it is the first to do as much injustice as he can.' (Plato, The Republic, book II, 364d-366d)
And the whole world lieth in wickedness.
Yet each person has an unlimited personal liability for his sin against the Creator of heaven and earth, who has power and Godhead authority over us, in whose jurisdiction we live on this earth, until our inevitable death:
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Hence the need to have your sins forgiven.
