Sin-nature v. Sinner by Choice?

Sin-nature or sinner by choice? Theological statement on FB: “I wasn’t born a sinner, I became one. You cannot repent from something you were from birth, only something you have chosen to become after. This is why as long as Christians believe they were born sinners, they will have no idea what sin is… Sin is transgression of the Law of God.”

Christian response,

Must a child be taught to disrespect his parents? Must a child be taught to lie or steal? You were born with a sin-nature inherited from your father who inherited that sin-nature from his father who ultimately inherited it from our first father, Adam. We all sin (Romans 3:23) because we’re sinners by nature. This is why Messiah was born through the womb of a virgin woman as He bypassed the sin-nature passed through the seed of man, Adam – Joseph.

It is that sin-nature and the accompanying sin, when having attained an age of reason/accountability, that separates us from God and that chasm can only be bridged by faith in the Son, Jesus Christ, as your God and Mediator for sin because in Adam, all die and the unrepentant, those who reject Jesus as Lord, will die the “second death” in Hell because God the Father is NOT going to permit your unrepentant sin to enter His Kingdom subsequent to the death of your body in Time (1 Corinthians 15:22; Revelation 20:11-15; Revelation 21:27).

12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.
