12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.
One act of disobedience by one man was sufficient to allow sin to enter the world.
Therefore — refers back to justification in Christ — As justification, so also Adam’s sin.
Sin and death entered with Adam, and all sin in Adam, but all also sin on their own.
In Adam — entrance of sin
In Moses (Law) — knowledge of sin (But before the law, before the knowledge of sin, sin still brought death.)
In Christ — forgiveness of sin
1 Corinthians 15:45 — And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
