Original sin is the doctrine that teaches that since Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, that all men inherit the guilt of Adam's sin and are born with a sinful nature.

There is no Scripture nor Scriptural concept that teaches men are guilty of any sin but their own. Sin is not inherited, it is committed. An honest study of the Bible concludes that men are not born as sinners, but as innocent babies.

James 3:9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; (NASB)

Men are created in the likeness of God. God was not a sinner nor did He have a sinful nature.

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, however, men do go astray. Men have free-will. God does not create sinners in the womb. God hates sin.

Genesis 9:6 "....For in the image of God He made man. (NASB)

The image of God is not that of a born sinner, with a sin nature.

Deuteronomy 1:39 Moreover, your little ones who you said would become a prey, and your sons, who this day have no knowledge of good or evil, shall enter there and I will give it to them and they shall possess it.(NASB)

If children are born sinners, with a sin nature, then, how can they have no knowledge of good or evil? They would know evil from good before birth.


1 John 3:4 Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. (NASB)

Babies do not practice lawlessness in the womb. Newborn infants do not practice sin. Babies in or out of the womb are innocent of sin until they reach the age of accountability.

James 4:17 Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do  and does not do it, to him it is sin.(NASB)

Do the unborn and infants sin because they know the right thing to do but refuse to do it? Of course not.

James 1:14-15 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin;  and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.

Lust gives birth to sin. Babies do not lust in the womb. Each person is tempted by his own lust. Do infants lust and then break God's commandments. No, they do not. 


Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness  of your sins.....(NASB)

Peter did not tell them to repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of Adam's sin. Peter did not say be baptized to eradicate the sin nature that you inherited from Adam.

The doctrine of original sin is a doctrine invented by men and promoted by those unwilling to put pride aside and trust the Bible and the Bible alone.

God hates sin. God did not nor does He create children in the womb with sin nature. God does not create babies with the guilt of Adam's sin.

God did create men with a free-will to choose good or reject evil. Men can choose salvation through faith in Jesus or they can reject Him.
