DOES GOD CREATE SINNERS? by steve finnell
Psalm 127:3 Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.(NASB)
Was God's gift a child guilty of sin? Of course not. God hates sin.
Galatians 1:15 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother's womb...(NASB)
Did God set the apostle Paul apart because Paul was a sinner in his mother's womb? Of course not.
Psalm 139:13-16 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. 14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made....(NASB)
Did God create David guilty of Adam's sin. Was David born totally depraved; a sinner at birth? Certainly not.
Luke 1:15 For he will be great in the sight of the Lord; and will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother's womb.(NASB)
Was John the Baptist filled with the Holy Spirit when he was guilty of Adam's sin while still in the womb? Of course not. Was he born a totally depraved sinner? No, he was not and neither is anyone else.
Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations."(NASB)
Did God consecrate Jeremiah in the womb guilty of Adam's sin? Did God appoint him a prophet because he was born a totally depraved sinner? No He did not, because men are not guilty of Adam's sin nor are they born sinners.
Psalm 22:10 Upon You I was cast from birth; You have been my God from my mother's womb.(NASB)
How could David say You have been my God from birth if David was guilty of Adam's sin in the womb and then born as a depraved sinner?
Job 31:13-15 "If I have despised the claim of my male or female slaves......15 "Did not He who made me in the womb make him, And the same one fashion us in the womb?(NASB)
God created all men the same in the womb. He created all men as innocent babies. God does not create sinners.
God does not teach the doctrine of original sin. Original sin was invented by men, not God.
