The apostle John picks up on this in the ongoing state of forgiveness in his first epistle.

It reminds us of John 3:16 where God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son.
From Luther's Works (10:17), translation by John Kleinig in Lutheran Theological Journal 20 (1986): 143.
All Sin is Rooted in Unbelief
Uniquely of the reformers, Martin Luther fleshed out the teaching of scripture that faith provides victory over sin, based upon the writings of John.
And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith" (1 John 5:4 NKJV). Luther further drew from John's gospel that unbelief is the root sin, the sin of man, (See John 3:18, 5:23, 12:48, and 16:3.) In one of Luther's sermons on the gospel of John, Luther states: "Unbelief is the chief sin, and the source of all other sins.
And, in a sermon based upon John 3:16-21, the remedy for sin is faith, "for faith makes our stink not to rise up to God.

With Dr John Kleinig

Dr John Kleinig is an Old Testament scholar with a special interest in spirituality and worship. His interest in the connection between spirituality and worship is evident in a book called Grace upon grace which was published last year. He has been a lecturer at Luther Seminary/ALC since 1982. After serving as a college chaplain for eleven years, he undertook postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge where he completed an MPhil and a PhD. Until 2006 he was the chair of the Lutheran Church of Australia's Commission on Worship and vice-chair of the Commission on Theology and Inter-Church Relations.
For about 400 years-from Malachi to John the Baptist-God kept his people in suspense. His silence baffled the psalmists who complained: 'There is no longer any prophet, and there is no one among us who knows how long' (Ps 74:9).

About John Kleinig
After serving as a lecturer at the Australian Lutheran College, formerly Luther Seminary, since 1982, he retired from full time teaching at the end of 2009 and is now engaged in writing a commentary on Hebrews.
He was born in 1942 and grew up on a farm in the Barossa Valley which may account for his love of red wine.
After finishing high school at Immanuel College where he was head prefect, he studied at the University of Adelaide for a BA Honours in German language and literature from 1961-1964.
Along the way, John completed a PhD from the University of Cambridge. His dissertation, The Lord's song: the basis, function and significanceof choral music in Chronicles' (1990) begins with a memorable paragraph in which John acknowledges the inspiration he received from J S Bach:
John has served the Lutheran Church of Australia in a number of official capacities. He has been a member (1983-2009) and chairperson (1993-2006) of Commission on Worship; a member (1990-1993, 1997-2009) and vice chairperson (2003-2009) of the Commission of Theology and Inter-Church Relations; a Lutheran representative on the Australian Consultation on Liturgy (1992-2003); and a member of the Lutheran Reformed Dialogue (1982-1996) and its co-chairperson (1992-1996).
John is married to Claire, a church musician and retired teacher.
