    Are all men guilty of sin because of Adam's sin in the Garden of Eden? No, they are not. Will men spend eternity in hell because Adam sinned? No, they will not.

    Original advocates present Romans 5:19 as a proof-text for original sin.

    Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man's obedience many will be made righteous.(NKJV)

    The theory is that because Adam was disobedient in the Garden of Eden, then all men are guilty of sin at birth. Men are guilty of sin because they sin, not because Adam sinned.

    Are all men made righteous because of the obedience of Jesus? No, they are not. Men become righteous only if they are obedient to the gospel plan of salvation.

    All men are not sinners because Adam sinned.
    All men are not righteous because Jesus did not sin.

    Romans 3:23 for have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (NKJV)

    All men become sinners because all men sin.

    1 John 3:4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.(NKJV)

    All who commit sin are sinners. Being born is not committing sin. Being born is not a lawless act.

    James 1:14-15 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. (NKJV)

    Temptation comes before sin. Babies in the womb are not tempted. Infants do give into the desires of fornication, drunkenness, theft, murder etc. Only those who know good from evil are capable of sin.

    Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NKJV) [BECAUSE ALL SINNED]

    Adam introduce sin into the world. All men will die physically because of Adam' sin. Men will suffer spiritual death, because they themselves sinned.

    2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgement of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.(NKJV)

    Men will be judged according to things they have done. Men are not going to be judged by what Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden.

    The only way to escape the punishment of sin is forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

      This in no way seems to be a comment about my blog SELECTED WORKS.

      This is like an uninvited bulldozer coming to push down my house while I am in it.
      Even if the bulldozer operator thinks they are doing me a favor they are still tearing down my house. With me in it.

      So while this said bulldozer driver is attempting to be of some help to me this bulldozer driver is participating in an act of aggression.

      Acts of aggression are not helpful.
      They are willful.

      Acts of aggression are not based in concern. They are not based in love.
      They are based in one's own opinion and ego.

      When some one thinks they are the only one who is correct.
      They seem to believe that gives them the right to talk over
      disregard the opinion of others
      shout louder than
      or in this case to push their way in to an arena that they were not invited into
      with a message that has nothing to do with that arena.

      I appreciate that you regard your opinion so highly but what I am soliciting here are opinions that pertain to my artwork.
      I ask you to please keep that in mind before you drive your bulldozer into my blog again.

      I will respond in kind by not driving my bulldozer into yours.

      Thank you for your consideration.
      Ballard Borich

  3. A very kind response from you Ballard.

  4. Yes, very kind. Admirable.

  5. Jesus Christ!!! Bulldozer is my favorite word! God, I can't believe it, BULLDOZER!!!

    Your response is more "christian" than the comment. I promise to aspire to your kind of kindness and not be so sacrilegious in the future.
