ORIGINAL SIN



God is All-Loving, compassionate, merciful and forgiving

Start with a practical example e.g... a father who is displeased with his son and punished him and then goes on to punish the children of his son, and then his great grandchildren, etc. Will you consider this father a loving, caring and forgiving father?

Then how can you credit God such a heinous injustice of ascribing Adam's and Eve's sin to the progeny born even after thousands of years?

Children: kingdom of God belongs to the children: Mark 10:14, Matthew 19:14. How possible if the children are born sinners?!

A son doesn't bear his father's sin, nor vice versa. 7 verses from the
Bible:

"The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father's iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son's iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself , and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself (Ezekiel 18:20)

Yet you say , 'the way of the Lord is not right ' O house of Israel, I will judge each of you according to his ways. (Ezekiel 33:20)


fathers shall not be put to death for their sons, nor shall sons be put to death for their fathers; everyone shall be put top death for their own sin.(Deuteronomy 24:16)


However, he did not put their children to death, but did as it is written in the law in the book of Moses, which the Lord commanded saying "fathers shall not be put to death for their sons, nor sons be put to death for their fathers , but each shall be put to death for their own sins." (II Chronicle 25:4)


In those days they will not say again, 'the fathers have eaten sour grapes , and the children's teeth are set on the edge.' But every one will die for his own iniquity ; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be et on edge. (Jeremiah 31:29,30)


But the sons of the slayers he did not put to death , according to what is written in the book of law of Moses, as the lord commanded saying, "the fathers shall not be put to death for the sons , nor the sons be put to death for the fathers ; but each shall be put to death for his own sin." (II Kings 14:6)


God will render to every man according to his deeds (Romans 2:6)


People who were described as perfect in the Bible:


Noah

……………………. Noah was a righteous man , blameless in his time ; Noah walked with God. (Genesis 6:9)

Then the Lord said to Noah , " Enter the ark, you and all your household ; for alone I have seen to be righteous before me in this time.(Genesis 7:1)


Job

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job, and that man was blameless, upright , fearing God and turning away from evil. (Job 1:1)

So how can they be sinners and be perfect at the same time?!
