Are children born in sin?
Many Christians claim that all children inherit the sins of Adam and Eve. Is this true?
At first glance, such a claim doesn't make sense. Why would the innocent pay for the crimes of the guilty?
Even the Bible agrees with the more logical stance on this. See Ezekiel 18:18–20.
But the Christians may be right for a different reason than they may think. Why? First of all, because we are not Homo sapiens, but immortal spirit wrapped in human flesh. Genesis 1:26 states that we were created in God's image and likeness, and He is not Homo sapiens.
Second, immortal spirit lasts forever. Thus reincarnation is part of the program of spiritual growth.
Therefore, we were the ones in the Garden. The crime was our own.
The result of that crime of turning our backs on God was the separation known as "ego." Ego is "self-concern." Ego is the opposite of love. Ego is selfishness and the root of all evil.
So, yes, children are born in sin, because their immortal souls are separate from one another until they take responsibility for their original crime.
Christ made it clear what we must do. We must love one another as ourselves. We must love our enemies, too. When we do, we remove separation and selfishness. We eliminate self-concern and thus remove all evil from the world -- healing it once and for all.
Is man an immortal soul? It may surprise you to learn that the Bible nowhere teaches the doctrine of an immortal soul. This belief was adopted from ancient pagan religion. The Bible speaks of a “mortal” soul, not an immortal one. Paul wrote that ONL
Every person is born in sin this is because when Adam and Eve sinned their spiritual relationship with God was severed.
Children are born into sin however until they start differentiating between good and evil, then they are judged for their actions. People put it at eight years but am not sure.
Talking about sin, our flesh are mortal unlike if Adam and Eve did not sin their bodies would not have been corruptible.
Is man an immortal soul? It may surprise you to learn that the Bible nowhere teaches the doctrine of an immortal soul. This belief was adopted from ancient pagan religion. The Bible speaks of a “mortal” soul, not an immortal one. Paul wrote that ONLY God has immortality and that “this mortal must put on immortality” through the gift of eternal life (1 Corinthians 15:53; 1 Timothy 6:16). Without that gift, we would perish (John 3:16). The Bible even says “the soul who sins shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4). No, little children do not have immortal souls.(For more about this, read our article “Are the dead conscious?

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...

Every Christian believes that their sins are forgiven by the blessed name and blood of Jesus on the Cross. The concept that Jesus (PBUH) died for the SINS of Mankind (Original Sin/Blood Atonement) runs contrary to not only rational thinking and common sense, but more importantly, to the teachings...

I am a staunch Christian and have met and talked with many a born again Christian. I had no nerve to ask them to their face if they continued sinning. Very forgettable and forgivable sins like say, a little gluttony: one little bite off that Black Forest you love. Is it still sin in their eyes?Can...

I'm a little bit confused if what is really our origin if where we really came from. In the bible we came from our great, great grand parents, ADAM and EVE. In the book of EVOLUTION we came from APES. Then there goes REINCARNATION, according to DR. IAN STEVENSON, in his book...
