THE WAGES OF SIN by steve finnell

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.(NASB)

The wages of sin is death. The wages for whose sin? Many believe men receive spiritual death because of Adam's sin when they are still in the womb or at birth. The truth is men become spiritually dead because of their own sins.

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NASB)

Death spread because all sinned.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,(NASB)

All fall short of God's glory because they have all sinned, not because Adam sinned.

Psalm 51:1-2 O God...2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity And cleanse me from my sin.(NASB)

David did not ask God to cleanse him of the guilt from Adam's sin.

Matthew 1:21 She will bear a Son: and you shall call His name Jesus , for He will save His people from their sins."(NASB)

Jesus will save people from "their sins." Jesus will not save people from Adam's sin, because no one is guilty of Adam's sin, but Adam.  

Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NASB)

Peter said, "The forgiveness of your sins," Peter did not say for the forgiveness of Adam's sin.

Acts 22:16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name!(NASB)

Ananias did not tell Saul to wash away Adam's sin. Ananias said wash away "your" sins.

Colossians 2:12-13...having forgiven us all our transgression,(ASB)

God forgave us all of "our" transgressions. God did not forgive us of Adam's transgression.

There is not one Scriptures that states men have to be forgiven of Adam's sin, the sins of  relatives, sins of friends nor sins of anyone else.
