“Thus Death Spread To All Men”

Romans 5:12  Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned

This passage does not end with “because they were all born to sin-stained parents”.  Nor does it say, “because they could not help but to sin”, nor “because they had been cursed thousands of years before when Adam and Eve sinned”.    Rather, it says, simply, “because all sinned”.

In these three words is undone the “Original Sin” doctrine.  As with a great many other passages of scripture that are untenable for the Original Sinners, this one candidly states the reason for the certain condemnation under which Paul’s world was living.
