The Need to Understand Original Sin — post by Michael J. Findley

People have always loved the approval of others. But to give up part of the truth of God’s Word just to win that approval will bring on the judgment of God.

Claiming the book of Genesis, at least the first eleven chapters, to be “allegorical” or “mythical” will win the approval of many. But if there was no historic Adam and Eve and no historical sin and Fall, why should we believe in Jesus Christ?

Without original sin, there is no need for a virgin birth, no need for an atonement and certainly no resurrection. And as Paul said, if Christ is not risen from the dead, we are yet in our sins. But, if the record of Adam and Eve is a myth, is there any sin?

    Peope don’t like to accept the human condition of being born in sin. Pride tells them you are basically good and seek after fleeting self happiness. Instead of knowing that you are fallen and accept the gospel of salvation. Which brings God’s grace, peace, and lasting joy.

    This is the third comment I’ve left today. The FaceBook link evidently does not work.

    People rarely understand how intertwined scriptures really are.
