Scripture says we are held responsible for our sins, but it clearly states that no one is held responsible for the sins of their ancestors. Adam is our ancestor is he not? Then we are not held responsible for his sin.
I clearly said we inherited a sin nature. Hence, no, it is not "theoretically possible" to be saved without Christ, because we are inherently sinful.
If we did not inherit original sin, it would be theoretically possible for us to enter Heaven without the need of a Savior.
Deuteronomy 24.16: "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin."I have zero guilt for my forefather's sin, and that includes Adam's sin.
Ezekiel 18.20: "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."
First: Scripture never says Adam was forgiven for his sin. That's an assumption. Second: Where did I ever say that God "cut [his] covenant with Adam after his sin"? Don't put words in my mouth.
