Romans 5:12 (ESV) Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— Romans 5:13 (ESV) for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Romans 7:7 (ESV) What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin.
