    Are all babies are born "dead in sin" because of Adam's sin, or "original sin?"

    Sin is defined as "transgression of the law" (1 John 3:4).

    But where there is no law there is no transgression - Romans 4:15

    What your parents do, or what Adam did, does it make you a sinner at birth?

    If sin is an act of disobedience to the will of God by choice, then why shift the blame?

    The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. - Ezekiel 18:20

    Christ died for all of our sins past, present and future. Children don't carry the sins of the father or mother or any of their ancestors. But they are responsible for the ones they make for themselves.

      IF we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins - 1 John 1:9

      But whoever lacks these traits is nearsighted to the point of blindness, having forgotten that he has been cleansed from his PAST SINS. - 2 Peter 1:9

    Although I don't truly buy into a lot of stuff in the bible.
    My guess is the reason why one has to be "born again" is because when you were initially born you were unaware there was a God!
    Until one is aware of and acknowledges God's existence you are by default a sinner. Even if you are a Christian you're still a sinner!
    Ecclesiastes 7:20
    " For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not." (I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Do the best you can.)

    I don't believe that babies are born with sin. That's silly.  The Catholic idea of it is why the immaculate conception is about Mary, Jesus' mother who had to had a 'perfect vessel', for how can perfection come from imperfection?

    As we know, the truth is in Bible. And it says that only God is objectively happy. Thus, God knows everything. God can do anything. God is the Strongest in the Universe. God can distance bad from Himself and attract good. Therefore, to reach untroubled life we have to remove the four main reasons of sufferings from our life. Here they are:
    1)    a lack of knowledge;
    2)    limited resource;
    3)    the conflict of interests;
    4)    the inability to select our environment.
    Anyone (!) on planet Earth is a sinner. There is personal karma. I'm writer, I have written five books. Not every person on planet Earth is writer. There is social karma. You (Americans) have the president. Belarusians have the dictator. Belarus has banned my books because my books have only truth!!! Belarusians do not have the right to speak. But ALL people have a choice. We can commit a sin and we can make a virtue. Every child is unlike Jesus Christ. And this distinction belongs only to the child. Every child wants something for himself. It is not a sin - this is imperfection! The crowd can not get into Heaven. God carefully examining everyone who wants to get into Heaven!

    Babies are absolutely NOT born 'dead in sin' - sin, death, hell and the deliverance from it through various rituals were all ancient pagan concepts (including baptism & the trinity). These are the things Jesus Christ came to free souls from - so that people could see themselves for what they really are: human beings, 'god in the flesh' just like him.

    The Roman State version of Christianity sort of hijacked that message in order to unite the many rebellious 'pagan' religions into one increasingly-manageable mass. Obviously, not everyone has realized this increasingly-accepted version of Christianity. It has been coming into fruitation more and more in the past few decades since the Internet became a hit.

    Both dogmatic Atheists & Christians are highly-advised to do a little more research; because neither one of your perspectives is entirely accurate. smile

    James 3:9 With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God;

    God doesn’t make sinners from the womb, but man depending on the environment he is born into has many walks of life to select from. Some of the life choices we make do not please the God of the scriptures. The world today with all the knowledge increase, is able to talk into or out of almost any situation they want to get behind. We could have been made without choices but that is not what happened.

    Even students of the bible chose not to agree with one another (often). Some matters just don’t matter, yet some if accepted may explain the lack of obedience to God. Being born/create by God as a sinner already gives the unrepentant person all the rationalizing doctrine they need to remain in their sin. They are born that way it is not their fault. This born that way that started in the church is now a catch phrase to explain lifestyle choices.

    When the disciple of Christ listens to the words of Christ when he says “go and sin no more”, there is no follow-up claiming we were born that way, no can do. By faith we believe and follow Jesus, by faith we are able to go and sin no more. By faith we know God is not making us one way and then demanding we act another. There are many links available to refute the doctrinal teachings of Augustine of Hippo one only has to do a little research.

    PandN- A Child born does not inherit the sins of the fathers (parents) as a results of the initial sin at the time of Adam and Eve. However, we do inherit the punishment of (physical) death as a result of the initial sin from Adams. We all die (physically). Jesus Christ died on the cross as a human being as a result of the punishment imposed at the time of Adam. But note that Jesus Christ took our sins to the cross even though He himself was sinless.

    The initial sin in the time of Adam was due to failing God COMMAND not to eat of the tree of knowledge.

    It should be clear that Death was not impose on man for eating of the tree of knowledge in and of itself, but the fact that both Adam violated the COMMAND not to eat from the tree of knowledge, Note in Genesis 3:11(NKJV) which states: 11 And He said, "Who told you that you where naked. Have you eaten from the tree of which I COMMANDED you that you should not eat?"

    God clearly gives a COMMAND (LAW) in Genesis 2:16-17 which states:16 And the Lord God COMMANDED the man, saying.; " Of every tree in the garden you may freely eat;17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, YOU SHALL NOT eat, for in the day that you eat of it you SHALL surely die."

    To make what I just said very clear it states in Romans 5:13 (NKJV) 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is NOT imputed when there is no law.

    It should be made clear that if God had not have given this command and man ate of the tree of knowledge, then death would not have been imposed on mankind from God. Remember, where there is no law , there is no sin.

    This is my final point, read in Romans 5.18 (NKJV) 18 Therefore, as through one man's offense JUDGEMENT CAME TO ALL MEN, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man'srighteous act  the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.

    I believe it is important for those to read Romans 8:2-3.

    Great question and God bless

      True, Adam's sin was his own; no inherited sin (Ezekiel 18:20). Sin is an action, Paul explains this further in Romans 7, also backed up by 1 John 3:4 as transgression of the law.  We will ALL be judged for our own sins unless we repent of them.

I grew up and went way beyond the red letters and purchased "The Other Bible" if I knew how to use my Amazon links, I would sure advertise that. It has parts of the dead sea scrolls and "books" of the Bible that were thrown away as recently as King James (Mary Stuart's son) I got a great deal of knowledge and comfort from it, and from my own spiritual quest and evidence right from the HOLY. Everything created is Holy, how about man and woman who are a little bit higher than the angels? I think that is the dumbest and most painful question that I have ever seen. You know King James did not live so long ago, and even then the Catholics had heavily added to and detracted from the Bible. And the reason there are 4 books now, is that King James left only 4 because of the 4 directions of the "wind" or something, North, South, East and West.

      I very much respect the written word of God. questioning your misuse of it doesn't mean I don't take it seriously. It is you that is in question not God, His son or the written word. Your exclusive claims to understanding is what is not serious.

    The Apostle Paul, whose epistles appear on the world scene well before the Gospels, never quotes Jesus. He seems wholly unaware of any of Jesus' sayings or his miracles. Drs. Richard Carrier and Robert Price, among others, are convinced that Jesus was not an earthly being, but rather the celestial conception of those who started his story, much as any of the other gods and goddesses of that area/era. This explains the lack of Jesus' mention by the Essenes, by Philo of Alexandria, and by anyone else in the era who took notes.

    Luke 4:14 "And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about."

    - Why fame? -

    John 21:25 "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."

    OK, so this guy is B U S Y ! ! ! Israel is at the crossroads of major trade routes... word of such a miracle maker would be known for decades to come, but Josephus hardly even burps his name, and the Testimonium Flavianum, as it's called, doesn't seem to be worth the paper it's printed on. Papias attests to authenticity, but all we have of Papias are a few scraps saved hundreds of years later through Eusebius. Justyn Martyr and Origen drop hints of an earthly Jesus, but no one knows for sure.

    No one knows who wrote the Gospels, and since it is apparent that "Mark's" Gospel came first, how funny he recorded things he couldn't have possibly known first hand! It's funny, "Matthew" had to fashion his account on "Mark" to fix things he didn't like, but added even more improbable events than those of "Mark!" "Luke" stepped up with a genealogy and timeline that contradicted "Matthew," then "John," in an attempt to patch over everyone else's blunders, jumps the shark in nearly every chapter such as the grossly overstated hyperbole already mentioned in 21:25. These are the four stooges of biographical scholarship, whoever they were, but one thing is certain, they were inventing Jesus as they went along.

    Fortunately these authors insisted on Jesus using Genesis, not just anecdotally, but THEOLOGICALLY! This is a blessing because all rational humans recognize the obvious fictions of Genesis. When the Son of God is quoting fiction for theological instruction, you can be pretty certain that the Son of God is fictitious as well. Hallelujah, Allah Akbar, Shalom, Namaste, Peace Out

      As in the testimony given of a car accident, it's told in "each person's view" but same story!  So is Scripture!  Christ came, taught, died, ascended!  Same story! It doesn't matter "when" written but "what" written! Inspiration fm GOD not timeline

    As I recall, Jesus said:  "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
    When I looked this quote up, I found it in Mark 10:14.
    If anyone maintains that heaven is made up of children who are "dead in sin," it is a place I doubt I would aspire to go to.
    I believe that "little children" are probably not over the age of 8, and without sin until they can be knowledgeable of what constitutes sin.

    Yes that is perfectly true. When Adam transgressed God's commandment an immediate death took place in his spirit. We need to remember that the scriptures teaches us that man consists of three parts. Body, soul and spirit. The spirit is the only means we have to communicate with God. Therefore after their disobedience Adam and Eve were banned from Paradise and from God's presence. They had lost contact with God, and their children had to be born in the same condition. For the children of Adam to get contact with God again their "dead spirit" had to be made alive. It is this process which the scriptures refer to as being born again.
    Eph 2:1  "And He has made you alive, who were once dead in trespasses and sins, ..."
    From the above scripture it is made clear that sin causes spiritual death, but also that such a person can be made alive again by God if he repents from his sins.

      Babies are not kept accountable for their state, they will go to heaven if they die as a baby. But there came a day in each person's life when he is matured enough to take his own decisions. Then spiritual accountability starts!!

    All babies are born with a sinful nature because of Adam and Eve's sin punishment by God. If a baby dies, he or she gets a free pass to Heaven though. The reason being, babies have not matured enough to make mature decisions on their own - that is what God looks for in people.

    "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)!  Did you hear "ALL" men;" babies included?  We can put our little "compassionate feelings" into the equation if we like, but the Word of God is the ONLY Thing that matters! 

    We know who that "one man" was; Adam!  After he fell; God "looked for a man to fill in the gap" to bring us back to Him; "but found no one" and had to do it Himself (I Timothy 3:16)!   Ezekiel 22:30 "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."

    People there's no need to continue to "defy the Word of God" because "unbelief" is sin (Hebrews 3:19)!  We (human) allow "our feelings" enter into the equation and that's where we go wrong (Proverbs 3:5)!  No one wants to "think" or "believe" a poor little innocent baby could possibly be "born a sinner" so we try and justify with Scripture how it couldn't possibly be and "defy God!" 

    Why would John 3:7 say "We MUST be born again" if babies are not sinners?  Why would they need "spiritual rebirth" if already "IN" Christ?  Your responses "defy Scripture!" 

    GOD SAID in Jeremiah 17:10 "I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings."  Did you hear?  GOD "searches the hearts" of babies to find their "level of understanding!" HE and ONLY HE determines if a child has "knowledge" and/or "understanding" of HIS Word! 

    GOD is MERCIFUL (John 1:14) and knows the "understanding" (mental capacity) of ALL; not only babies, but ALL men!  JESUS SAID in Luke 12:47-48 "And that servant, which "knew" his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.  But he that "knew not," and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes.  For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more."  So now, you have the "mental capacity" to "understand" yet "try to figure out a way to justify your *own* "understanding?"  If so, GOD SAID "You will be beaten with "many" stripes!" 

    I continue to pray that "...the eyes of your "understanding" being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling..." (Ephesians 1:18)!

    Blessings        .

    All became sinners because of the original sin of Adam. The sin, curse, and death came into the humanity through Adam. One disobedience made everyone sinners. In Romans, Paul expounds and establishes this truth. The sin of Adam is different from the sin of any father mentioned in Ezekiel. Today, no one needs to do any sin to become a sinner. Rather, people commit sin because they are already sinners. God considered the sin of Adam as the universal sin; hence, the Bible says that we all sinned against God and came short of the glory of God.
