And Lack of knowledge is not the same as sin. Just because my kids have not learned all the survival tools required to live on there own does not mean that they are sinners. Kids don't not know how to sin. They are taught to sin by thier parents

I agree with you.
agreed...see you and me lack knowledge of christ and since it is not sin , you have hope of getting saved
The epitome of sin is death....which is total ignorance.
Where there is some knowledge, sin remains because this ignorance is sin.
Now where there is all knowledge, there can be no sin because all knowledge is Life and there is no death/sin In Life.
Where there is Truth , there is all knowledge and that one is totally free from Sin and that one Is life....
So we see Life is found in only one thing.... knowing Truth.
any other knowledge is still sin and death
You had better be careful with this one. First every human is born with sin. You inherit the "Sin of Adam" when you are born.
No big deal, but sin is still sin.
You are correct in a way, believing that if you do not know that you have sinned, you have not sinned.
BUT, let's say you without knowing, you break some law of the land and you get arrested and go before a judge. You try to tell the judge that you were not aware that there was such a law, and that you were not aware that you had broken that particular law.
The judge is going to sit there and tell you the following: "Ignorance of the law is no excuse." The judge will then find you guilty. You broke the law, without even knowing that there was such a law.
Bad example, Dave.
You should remember that in law, people are innocent until proven guilty, not the other way round as in your claim with the sin of Adam.
Just because someones dad was a murderer doesn't mean his son will be one too.
As usual you are trying to twist things. The judge deals with the law. Just because you claim you did not know of such a law, and claim you were not aware you were breaking such a law, does not make you innocent. Also DNA and science is attaching the theory that certain dominant genes within DNA can prove that certain traits your father has, can transfer to you.
I understand your example, Dave, but it is just a bad example comparing to the sins of Adam.
Your god assumes everyone is guilty of sin until saved while the law says you are innocent until proven guilty, the exact opposite. Bad example, Dave.
Really? I would suspect then that the entire country of Australia's citizens are "born" criminals?
If you are going to argue with Dave, you should probably check your facts.
Guilty of committing a sin, and being born in sin are not one in the same. It is taught that you have the stain of sin. Like a catsup stain on your shirt. The statement has nothing to do with innocence or guilt because of your actions. It is just a condition of man.
I think, if you were to look at the history of Botany Bay you would see that many were sent there for simply doing the only thing they could to ensure their survival. I don't think anyone would argue that a starving person killing a rabbit was a criminal act today. Many people transported were not murderers, not all had been convicted before and some only for crimes such as poaching.
Playing the semantics game with myths? What's really funny about that is you make the claim that it is "a condition of man" - that is hilarious.
Obviously, you didn't do that yourself before posting that claim. Do you have any idea what a penal colony entails and who gets sent to them? Hilarious stuff you post.
You do find humor in the oddest things I can appreciate that.
I'm not going to argue the first point with you because it will always be an argument with you. I honestly don't agree with what I typed, I was simply trying to explain the fallacy of your argument against it.
As to a penal colony, I do know what it is, but this particular colony appears to have had more to do with the colonization of a continent by creative means, than punishing serious crimes. I suppose, it could be argued that a rabbit stealer begets a rabbit stealer, but it seems a strange argument.
you mean to say jesus too inherited the sin of adam since genes of marry too passed on to jesus who in turn inherited sins of adam and eve?....50% genes would be of god considering jesus is said to be son of god while 50% would be of marry...
Mary conceived through the power of God's Holy Spirit, therefore Jesus as God the "Son of God" was born sinless.
Your argument just fell apart. A baby cannot be in sin. To hold a baby accountable for something it hasn't yet done is BS. Plain and simple.
but god is said to be loving , merciful...is there any verse which says god is logical and intelligent?...god wants revenge of adam from kids just born or would be born...wow...what a god...we must thank satan to attempt to get even with such god...
Every child is born innocent without a sin; sin is not hereditary; sin must be wrong done purposely. A child be default cannot commit it; it is the adults who committ a wrong purposely.
Sin is a concept of disobeying god. If god doesnt exist, then neither does sin and if god does exist but has never given us any rules, then sin is again, non existant.
As far as I can see, sin is a concept created by people who want you to do what they say.
Some say eating pork is a sin. Some say drinking alcohol is a sin, being gay is a sin, working on the sabbath is a sin.
Do these really sound like the requests of someone who created the entire universe? Sounds a bit petty dont you think?
On a more serious point, the bible states that god commands you (through moses) to kill anyone trying to lead you away from god. Since this is a commandment, then disobeying it is a sin. Therefore not killing them is a sin.
Hang on, I thought killing was a sin aswell? Oh well, I guess they never thought the whole book through when they made it up.
Can't win can you?
1. The Creator-God does exist.
2. Sin can also be defined doing anything for which there is a guilt feeling in a person; it is inbuilt in the psyche or conscience of man through evolution set in motion by the Creator-God.
1. errm prove it
2. errm prove it
If you cant prove it, then you have NO right to assert it as fact. There could be children reading this.
I agree. You can't sin, unless you recognize it as such. I would add, that sin differs from person to person on some levels. If your actions produce a measure of guilt then I define it as sin; whether it falls in line with anyone else's definition of the word. Your perception of sin within yourself is what produces inner conflict. Takes away from your peace and harmony. It's the same as your conscience talking to you.

Born bad I need a makeover. Born good I am already perfect. Whose gonna have the attitude problem?
Lack of knowledge is not a sin .[Before apple]
Knowledge is a boon and sin. [After apple]
Normally knowledge growth is directly proprtional to age.
Then why JESUS told that no body will enter paradise if you are not as like child.
so knowledge is a Boon & Sin
Knowlege is not a sin; sin is by action. If one has a true knowledge one won't do a wrong; if one knows that there is pisonous snake in a hole; one won't put one's finger in it; so knowledge is no sin; it is its opposite.
The Truthful Religons teaches us to pray for more knowledge:
[20:115] Exalted then is Allah, the True King! And be not impatient for the Qur’an ere its revelation is completed unto thee, but only say, ‘O my Lord, increase me in knowledge.’
