Is it possible man is born with original sin, and spiritually dead? Scripture teaches Adam lost his original righteousness, and his fallen nature is passed onto all his posterity. Born with this original sin, we are all guilty: We have the guilt of his first sin, we do not have the original righteousness Adam was created with, which was lost at the fall, our whole nature is corrupted. This is all inherited from Adam.
This inherited corruption which everyone is born with is called original sin. It flows to all of us from our first parents, the origin of our race. It is distinguished from actual sin, but is the origin all actual sin.
According to God Adam died when he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." Gen 2:17.
To show what this original sin of eating the forbidden fruit caused, we have to understand what died in Adam? He died spiritually, scripture does not teach he was sick spiritually, but, he died.
How can this be proved or disproved from scripture? How did God create man, what are the parts of man, and what died? What was inherited by all Adam's posterity?
