The Scripture “all have sinned” is indeed referring to the fact that we all have transgressed God’s law and are accountable to God as a result. A two weeks old baby cannot be punished for the sin of his or her father and condemned to hell for the selfsame reason. The true position of the Bible is that this baby, like all of us, is born with a sinful nature and a carnal heart and has sinful propensities or sinful inclinations which he or she inherited from his or her parent which goes all the way back to Adam and Eve, but this baby is not born a sinner. Though this baby has the tendencies in him from birth to steal, to kill, to lie, to fornicate or to commit adultery, to bear false witness, to have other gods, yet this baby is not a thief until he has stolen, is not a murderer until he has killed, is not a liar until he has lied, he is not a fornicator until he has fornicated, is not a false witness until he has born false witness, and is not an idolater until he has had other gods. When we understand this, the satanic position of Original Sin, that we are all born sinners and which stands with the position that we are all born thieves, murderers, liars, fornicators, false witnesses, and idolaters, comes into full blown light as a doctrine of devils. Thus a baby should not be baptised until he or she has reached the age of accountability which is the age when God begins to hold us accountable for knowing right from wrong and good from evil. Only God can tell when we have reached this age.

When the Bible says all have sinned, we must understand that God’s sense of justice is not and cannot be more perverted than man’s sense of justice. In man’s system of justice, an individual is not declared a criminal or a sinner until he or she has transgressed the laws of the land. No individual is considered a criminal by the law because of the sin of his or her father or mother. This is called justice. God is the most just judge of all and His sense of justice cannot be poorer than the man He created in His own image.

Because a baby has the tendencies in him from birth to steal, to kill, to lie, to fornicate or to commit adultery, to bear false witness, and to have other gods, even this baby needs a Saviour and the baby will only be in heaven on the account of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ! This is because “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50) and “this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:53).

The satanic position of the Original Sin doctrine simply perverts the sense of God’s justice and it is Satan’s ultimate device to keep people in a deceived state of sinfulness and enmity against their Maker. We are not born sinners. That’s Satan’s lie. As David indicated “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me”, we were born with a sinful nature and have sinful tendencies and inclinations. We are therefore sinners by choice for until a baby steals, God does not consider him a thief and no one is a gay until he chooses to be one.

 

***”Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8).***
