WHAT DOES THE WORD SAY?:
(Rom 5:12 AMP) Therefore, as sin came into the world through one man, and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or to escape its power] because all men sinned.
(Rom 5:13 AMP) [To be sure] sin was in the world before ever the Law was given, but sin is not charged to men's account where there is no law [to transgress].
(Rom 5:14 AMP) Yet death held sway from Adam to Moses [the Lawgiver], even over those who did not themselves transgress [a positive command] as Adam did. Adam was a type (prefigure) of the One Who was to come [in reverse, the former destructive, the Latter saving]. [Gen. 5:5; 7:22; Deut. 34:5.]
SHOOT'N FROM THE HIP:
So even if we do nothing wrong (and come on.... We all have sinned) in and of ourselves.... And if we are the model citizens.... And nary a harsh word or wrong move came from us.... Still death resulting from Adam's sin held sway.... We were all born into sin.... All of us were given the choice.... And the freedom of will to make said choice....
So the point of this whole thing is to say if you made that choice.... And you chose to trust in and rely on the One who suffered so much for you.... Then it is time you knew who you really are in Him....
