    Does it state in the Bible that we are all born in sin, and if so I thought Jesus died for our sins?

    OK I was reading in a study Bible study book the other day that stated we are all born in sin. If that is true how is it that Jesus died for all our sins (which lasts forever) and how can a baby be born in sin if they don't even know what it is???  If there is a particular scripture I would appreciate it.

    Jesus died for the sins of those who accept him. We are born into flesh. The soul is what Jesus died for to live with him for eternity. The flesh will continue to sin regardless. That is why it is called "Born again." The soul is saved, the flesh is but a shell that carries the soul. No one is perfect and free from sin, God knew this. This is why he watched his son go through hell and be crucified so that our souls can be washed clean if we accept Jesus and what he has done for us.

      And the big question is how do we "accept" or "follow" Christ?

      Too many do not do this, and yet still call themselves Christians.

      One Christian thought he was saved, but that he could now sin with impunity. You cannot follow two masters

    This seems to be a question of doubt in your own faith rather than a useful informative question to arouse debate. We are all born of sin, but jesus died to spare of us sever penance for our sins. In other words he died so that we wouldn't all rot in hell for the bad things we the human race a capable of through each of our respective life times. I am not one for asking these types of questions. If you don't believe in jesus and what he did then put the bible down and walk away. Forget it and say you'll never need god or jesus again. And you'll go on living well and forever without him.

      Instead of nit picking at detail just fill up with love and slow your life down. There are  people who love god and speak to him daily. They know that you don't have to read the bible or become an analyst to know god and live each day for gods sake.

      @safiq, you accuse others of "nit picking at detail," but you do that very thing by what you say. You say "fill up with love" but your words show no compassion or love.

      Jesus wants us to understand. Too many have blind belief and wrong understanding

      None of us is born in sin. In Ps 51 David was expressing his opinion when he was depressed about his sin. Read Ps 139. How can that which God made in the womb be sinful? If we are made by God, we are born perfect.

      The Bible is very clear that no person will be responsible for the sins of others. Each person is answerable for himself alone and cannot blame it on Adam and Eve.This is how justice goes.Check :Deuteronomy 24:16

  5. lone77star profile image84
    lone77starposted 5 years ago

    Read Genesis 2 and 3.

    This is our great fall from grace.

    Genesis 1:26 tells us that we were created in the image and likeness of God the Father.

    Genesis 2:7 tells us that we were created from the dust of the ground.

    Now, I hardly think that the image and likeness of God is that of dust. So, we are talking of 2 separate creations. We are talking of immortal spirit wrapped in Homo sapiens flesh.

    God told Adam that he would die on the day he ate of the forbidden fruit, but did he literally, physically die on that day? It doesn't appear that way. Adam and Eve were escorted out of the Garden, and Adam lived to the ripe old age of 930.

    But that was not Adam the individual, for Genesis 5:2 tells us that Adam was a group -- both male and female.

    And Genesis 6:3 emphasizes the 2 creations of man -- for man is also flesh. If he is also flesh, then he is something else, too. That other self is the true self -- the immortal child of God created in His image and likeness.

    Our individual sin was that of spirit, for we died in the Garden spiritually when we took the forbidden fruit. Adam -- the spiritual group.

    Each of us is born in sin so long as we have ego -- the poison of the forbidden fruit -- wrapped like a blindfold over our spiritual eyes. I have been without that blindfold for a few, brief moments. I have seen with spiritual eyes, thought with spiritual consciousness -- entirely detached from ego and the physical body. I felt the glory of God washing through me. But then I pulled that dirty rag back over my spiritual eyes and I lost the Light once more. My soul groans in agony at that.

    Jesus tells us what we must do. We must be born again of the spirit. We must let go of the part of us that demands to be first (the false self, ego). And we can only do this through loving humility (being last, in the true self, soul, Holy Ghost, child of God, within).

    Yes, Jesus died for our sins. But to cash in on his gift, we need to follow his example. We need to give up ego in its entirety. We need to perform miracles without any thought of "self." We need to love fearlessly. And we need to take 100% responsibility, for then there is no room for blame or victim.

    Love really is the answer, for love cares not for the "self."

    While it is true that our bodies are born into sin as babies we are still under the age of accountabilty therefore babies dont go to hell. But the age of accountability is something  that is different for everyone. Its when you truly inderstand right from wrong and the understanding then reuires you to make a decision based on freedom from sin or to remain under the law of sin and a slave to it. Jesus' WHOLE ministry was to teach the freedom of how to walk back like we are before we reach the age of accountability and mumbling "the sinners prayer" doesnt save you, its coming to the understanding of being under sin and that you want to live differently in freedom. THATS why you have SO many Republicans who are SAYING they are Christians but say to let all the poor people die from hunger and lack of healthcare which is OBVIOUSLY against ALL of Jesus teachings. You must have an understanding of what Jesus did and get to know WHO He is by listening to His Spirit which these so-called Christian Republicans OBVIOUSLY dont. The problem is all these people who believe in their words that they asked Jesus to save them without realising that they have made a vow, a committment to allowing the Holy Spirit to lead them rather than the spirit and culture of this world. These people arent ACTUALLY believing in Jesus but in the words they spoke which isnt faith in Jesus but faith in words which will not change them or save them from sin. STOP looking at other people around you who are any religion and go yourself to God and ask HIM to guide you to the truth of Jesus. Listen and follow your feelings of leading. Dont worry about anything else is my advice. God Bless You.

      It's immortal soul that carries sin directly from the Garden--the blindfold of ego that resulted in spiritual death.

      I've seen without that blindfold, without human eyes and consciousness--without ego.

    My personal opinion is that people missed the point of Jesus's ministry. They attempt to tie in the religion that preceded his appearance with the religion that rose behind him. No one was born in sin. No one has to find a way to become right with God. That was his point. God knows who you are. Knows the number of hairs on your head. You are right with the cosmos automatically. Our mission is to be right with our fellow man. Love one another as we are loved. Pointing fingers and crying sin just appears to be too fun of a concept to let go of.

      If you take the stories literally, then I guess that is a possible interpretation. I don't. I don't see any evidence to support taking any of it literally. Ego drives the need to see sin. Religion feeds the ego.

    Every “good” Christian believes that their sins are forgiven by the blessed name and blood of Jesus.The problem with this however is that this is contrary to not only the teachings of  Jesus,but to the teachings of The Holy Bible itself even the idea put forth by the Christians that all children are born with the black stain of sin runs contrary to this event in the ministry of  Jesus:
    “Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the Kingdom of God…Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”   Mark 10:14-15

    Now if the idea of all children being born with the black stain of sin was among the many teachings of Prophet Jesus, then this statement would have never been made by him considering that Christians believe that unless a child be baptized in the name of Jesus,that child could never inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, but rather suffer the doom of hellfire and damnation. Any belief that Christians have in regards to a child being born in sin is refuted by the above words of Jesus. He makes it clear that unless you are as innocent as a child, you can never inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.
    “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures.”   1 Corinthians 15:3

    According to this passage, Paul is claiming that this ideology is supported by the scriptures, and in this case he is making reference to the Hebrew Scriptures, or The Tanach. However, one will find that this idea of an innocent man, in this case Jesus, having to pay for the sins of others is nowhere to be found in the Hebrew Bible. In actuality, it is the exact opposite that is found in the Hebrew Scriptures;

    “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. “But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statuses and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him; in his righteousness that he hath done, he shall live.”   Ezekiel 18:20-22.

    Why don't you read that Bible on your own and not in a study bible devised to hide the truth from you.  Jesus told us that he and God are WITHIN us all and by the accounts of that Bible God made everything good.  Sin is, if you read what Jesus states only, is something that you do against your very own person.  A sin is like if you did something (which you may not be aware of) and then you get sick from it.  What you did to cause that sickness is a sin.  We are not all born in Sin.  Religion will teach you that but if you read the Bible you will find your own answers.

    22 For even as, in Adam, all are dying, thus also, in Christ, shall all be vivified.

    24 thereafter the consummation (Feast of Booths), whenever He may be giving up the kingdom to His God and Father, whenever He should be nullifying all sovereignty and all authority and power.
    25 For He must be reigning until He should be placing all His enemies under His feet.
    26 The last enemy is being abolished: death.
    27 For He subjects all under His feet. Now whenever He may be saying that all is subject, it is evident that it is outside of Him Who subjects all to Him.
    28 Now, whenever all may be subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also shall be subjected to Him Who subjects all to Him, that God may be all in all.

    "Jesus is the most studied man in history, yet his true name is a mystery for most people. In the past, this was due to the deliberate destruction of documents by the Roman and Islamic Empires to hide the truth. Today, the Vatican still hides its documents about Jesus’ true history, his marriage to Mary Magdalene, Jesus’ ancient wisdom and his secret teachings."
