Original Sin does not exist

 

The root of Christianity is the original sin upon which the crucifixion is justified and used for the benefit of Christians. If original sin is thrown away, then the crucifixion becomes dead.

 

None of these two man-made beliefs are true and original sin is nowhere to be found in the entire Bible.

Gen. 3:14

"And the Lord God said unto the serpent, 'Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life'".

 

This is a curse upon the serpent and that too only a worldly one.

Ezek 18:4

Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Ezek 18:20

The soul that sinneth, it shall die.

(Deuteronomy 24:16)
“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.”

 

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 concept matches exactly the Qur’anic point on this issue.

 

(Quran 6:164)

“No person earns any (sin) except against himself (only), and no bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another.”

 

 

Some contradictory verses do exist in the Bible which Christians use to defend this man-made concept of original sin. If we take a closer look at these verses, we see that they too do not talk about the original sin the way Christian believe it to be.

 

For example:

 

Gen 3:17

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed [is] the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat [of] it all the days of thy life;

Gen 3:18

Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

Gen 3:19

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return.

 

 

These verses might appear to be about the original sin but if we read them carefully, we see that they only talk about worldly punishments and nothing more.

 

Where in the Bible is it written that man is destined to eternal damnation for the inherited sin?

 

Where does the Bible say that the sole or main purpose of Jesus was to undo what Adam had done?

 

John 1:29

The next day John sees Jesus coming unto him, and says, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world.

 

Prophets are sent by God to be examples of the message they have brought. Prophets are sent to bring mankind on the right path and to lead them away from a sinful life. Therefore, Jesus takes away the sins of the people by guiding them and showing them the right path. Secondly, Jesus never says such a thing, it is John who does so.

Rom. 5:12

"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:"

Rom. 5:19

"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners,..."

These verses say that due to the sin of Adam, death arises. Not eternal death but death in the world. This is the appropriate interpretation; otherwise, there is a contradiction with the following verses:

Jer. 31:29-30

"In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge."

Ezek 18:4

Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Ezek 18:20

The soul that sinneth, it shall die.

(Deuteronomy 24:16)
“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.”

 

The death being talked about is the death in this world and not punishment in hell.

Prov.20:9

"Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?"

The way to cleanse oneself from sin to clean one’s heart and not to believe in crucifixion or Trinity.

Psalms 51:5

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

The above verse needs to be seen in context to be understood fully.

51:1

Chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

51:2

Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

51:3

For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin ever before me.

51:4

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done [this] evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, [and] be clear when thou judgest.

51:5

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

 

If we read in context, we see that the person saying these words is actually a sinner, see verse 3 and 5. This shows that this person was actually a sinner himself and talks about sins happened before him.

Nathan came from Aaron's wife who was a fourth generation bastard son of Judah, so her sons were fifth generation sons. As the bible says, God's law specifically banned bastards and their descendants from entering the assembly of Yahweh for at least ten generations (Dt. 23:2).

David was a ninth generation bastard. David was the 9th generation son of Perez, the bastard son of Judah and Tamar.

His lineage is shadowed and shameful: his father descended from Moab, a product of incest between Lot and his daughter after Sodom's destruction, down through Ruth, a Moabite convert.

David was believed to be bastard by his father and brothers. Such allegations have been made against Prophet David.

I was shapen in inequity can be taken as two meanings, first that when he was in his mother's belly and was being taken a shape and the second is his growing up days.

Whichever way you take it, the sin being talked about is personal and not hereditary. 

If you take,

I was shapen in iniquity

as growing up days, even then these sins are personal. King David is accused of deceit, adultery and murder in the Bible.

It is surprising that such a huge concept of Christians, 'Original Sin' has no mention in the bible.
