ORIGINAL SIN? NICE IMAGINATION CHRISTIANS
Only idol worshiping Christians could come up with this one; automatic guilt.
The first indication of such a concept as “Original Sin” was in the 2nd century by Irenaeus, from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lyon, in France.
The Christians claim that Adam is accountable as having brought death into the world by eating the forbidden fruit. Thus all of his offspring are responsible for his wrong doing.
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. Ez 18:20
And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done. Genesis 8:21
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Genesis 6:5-8,
The Bible states that God recognizes that man inherently has evil imaginations. However it is clear that Adam’s sins are his alone.
Death by Sin
And where does it say that Adam brought about death? It says it In the Christian New Testament of course. I guess all the dinosaurs didn’t die. And i guess all the animal also inherited death from Adam also.
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: Romans 5:12
I can see the writer was no Jack London (the Greek gospel writer Paul of course).
Right after that verse Paul states,
for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Romans 5:13
The Christians have to call it the “word of God” otherwise people will start thinking about what the text says.
God cursed the ground, and Adam was to struggle in his labors because the ground was cursed.
To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’
“Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” Genesis :17-19
And where does it say that Adam brought about death? In the Christian New Testament they claim death wasn’t around until Adam sinned (ate the fruit). I guess only the animals died and not man???
The Talmud is clear that the this cursing of the ground was later lifted.
Christians don’t want to read and think. They just want to “believe” in whatever a preacher imagines (evil imaginings).
