BORN WITH A SINFUL NATURE? by steve finnell
All all men born with a sinful nature as the result of the sin of Adam and Eve? No. Are men sinners in the womb and born as sinners? No. Has God created all men with a sinful nature since Adam sinned in the garden of Eden? No.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 One thing I have learned: God made people good, but they have found all kinds of ways to be bad."(New Century Version)
God does not create men with a sin nature nor are they sinners at birth.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 Behold, I have found only this, that God made men upright, but they have sought out many devices."(NASB)
God made men upright, He did not create men with a sinful nature nor guilty of sin at birth.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 See, I have found only this, that God made man upright, but they have found many sinful ways."(New Life Version)
God does not create sinners nor a sin nature in man, men sin of their own free-will.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 I did learn one thing: We were completely honest when God created us, but now we have twisted minds. (Contemporary English Version)
Does God create men with a sin nature? No. Men become sinners on their own.
God hates sin. Why would God create all men with a sin nature and sinners at birth? He would not and does not.
MEN GO ASTRAY
Men go astray, they are not born astray.1 Peter 2:25 For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. (NKJV)
If men go astray, then obviously they were not born astray. How can men return to the Shepherd if they were never with the Shepherd? Men are born innocent and then go astray when they sin against God.
God does not create men with a sin nature. God does not create babies who are sinners at birth. God does not cause men to sin.
GOD HATES SIN.
