THE ORIGINAL SIN MYTH by steve finnell
If all men inherited Adam's sin that would mean Jesus was born a sinner. Jesus was born free from sin as was every other man and women.
Hebrews 4:14-15...Jesus the Son of God....15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. (NASB)
Jesus not born with sin nor did He commit any sin.
Ezekiel 18:20 The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father's iniquity....(NASB)
Jeremiah 31:30 But everyone will die for his own iniquity....(NASB)
Deuteronomy 24:16 "Fathers shall not be put to death for their sons, nor shall sons be put to death for their fathers; everyone shall be put to death for his own sins. (NASB)
No man will die spiritually because of the sin they inherited from Adam. No one will be separated from God because of the sin of Adam. Sin is committed not inherited.
Men will die spiritually and be separated from God because of the unforgiven sins they commit.
Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (NASB)
The Bible does not say all are guilty of Adam's sin and fall short of the glory of God.
Psalm 14:3 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.(NASB)
The Scripture does not say they were born corrupt, it says they have become corrupt.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NASB)
Spiritually death has spread to all men because all men have sinned, not because of the inherited sin of Adam.
If a drug dealer introduces a deadly drug into your community and all die, they do not all die because the drug was introduced, but because they all used the drug. Adam introduced sin, he did not force people to sin nor were they guilty of his sin.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.(NASB)
No Scripture states that Christians need to confess Adam's sin in order to be forgiven of original sin. Men are only guilty of sins they themselves commit.
The doctrine of original sin is taught because of honest misunderstanding as well as the deceitfulness of certain men.
No person will ever go to hell because they inherited the guilt of Adam's sin. Men are separated from God because of the unforgiven sins they themselves commit.
