    Ezekiel chpt 18 really contradicts what we are taught about the original sin. How can we be punished for the sins our Father Adam did thousands of years ago. Furthermore, he never asked us nor were we present. Nonetheless, our loving, forgiving creator promised us the opposit.

    Which is more credible: God's Word direct from the source, or someone else's interpretation it?

    And what exactly are you taught about original sin? Do you think whatever you're taught is somehow more correct than Ezekiel? The Bible doesn't contradict itself, only man has contradictory interpretations of it sometimes. In Ezekiel 18:20 it says we don't bear the iniquity of the father- is that the verse that doesn't seem consistent with what you were told? I personally don't see any evidence in the Bible that we are punished for others' sins. However, God changed the way he decided to deal wtih mankind based on Adam & Eve eating the fruit, but that's not exactly being punished for sin.

    We have parents who bring us up. If you are fortunate, you will be clothed and fed by them. Many grow without either! As long as we are subserviant to sin, we would carry on. Sin is still sin! Whether it is yours or your daddys!

    Comments by Alex on Ezekiel 18 : 20 which is True as it gets , the best scripture for Original sin,But what Ezek. does not tell ya is Israel cd not keep the law for long Father and Son a like they both died in their own sins, But God Promised them if they wd keep the law they wd not die.But here is where Original sin comes in, Original sin made them ALL VERY CORRUPTIBLE, Thats y God called then backsliding Israel. There was none righteous no not one .the law was the ministration of death . But if they wd keep the law they wd live but they wd get bit Remember the serpents ,God told em to build a bronze serpent and if they wd behold that bronze serpent they wd live EVEN THO THEY GOT BIT. Which was prophetic of Christ that wd be lifted up so that if we sin there wd be no condemnation . God knew that Israel wanted to keep the law but b/c of their old adamic nature ,satans head, Original sin made them corruptible and thats y we must be BORNAGAIN of an incorruptible seed etc. Even by the words of God ,But Ezek was so right every person died for their own sins. But b/c of Original sin they were easily corrupted which was Adams stain and spot . But when that new covenant is mediated it gonna be impossible to sin as them that are born of God CANNOT SIN, which is our new heart and new spirit. Christ in us. he is our bronze serpent ,If i be LIFTED UP i will draw ALL men unto me. The spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death, Snake bite and death. What the law cd not do in that it was weak thru the flesh God had to send his son to condemn sin in the flesh via that good seed th word the contents of that book. In the volume of the book it is written of ME i delight to do thy will O GOD...TO MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SIN THUS FULFILLING THE LAW. k later
