For the sins we commit, we are both culpable and accountable to God. Babies are not born with sin! No one is a sinner unless they breach God's spiritual rule (1 John 3:4). Babies are incapable of committing sin. They know what it is to be happy or unhappy, sick or well, guilty or innocent. Their minds aren't developed enough to understand right from wrong. Because of this, birth itself cannot be considered a sin.
The Bible does say that babies go to hell if their parents do not take them to church when they are young enough to learn about Jesus Christ. However, this should not be taken as justification for keeping children out of church. Parents who refuse to have their children baptized into Christ because he gives us new life through his grace are missing out on one of the most important things you can give your child.
Parents should also remember that salvation is received by faith in Jesus Christ, not by being baptized. We should teach our children about Jesus Christ by telling them stories from the Bible and helping them to learn about him through prayer and worship. Then, when they are old enough, have them baptized.
Birth itself is not a sin because people are responsible for their actions, not for what was done with their body before they were born. The body is a tool that we use to express who we are inside - good or bad.
Logic and common reason require that the concept of "original sin" contradicts God's basic essence and character. The Bible, however, tells us that we are not born with sin but with righteousness (see Psalm 51:5).
What happens to us after we're born? We become sinners by default because we live in a sinful world full of sinful people who influence us through pleasure, pain, and reward/punishment systems (such as heaven and hell) to behave in ways that please others or get us rewards. Sinful behavior is what separates us from God; therefore, we deserve punishment since he is perfectly righteous and we are completely flawed.
But Jesus came to save us from our sins. Can something be saved from itself? Yes! Because of his sacrifice, we can be saved from our sins and experience life eternal in heaven when we die.
We are not responsible for Adam's transgression.
Jesus said, "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son" (John 3:16). Jesus paid the penalty for our sins because of His love for us. We are saved by grace through faith in Christ.
Sinners exist since the beginning of time. There have been righteous people who have lived honest lives, but they have never been able to overcome their sin nature which causes them to continually fall short of God's perfect standards. Only one person has ever been able to perfectly obey God's commands and live without sinning for an entire lifetime- Jesus Christ.
If you want to know where it says we're born sinners, look no further than Romans 3:10-12. The Bible says everyone who sins breaks the law to some degree or another. But there are two ways out of sin: death and life. Life!
The Bible is unequivocal in its message that newborns do not inherit their parents' sins. [One widely misapplied passage used to suggest that children inherit sin is Psalm 51:5-6, which Wayne Jackson (2000) discusses in depth.] However, this verse has been applied to children inheriting guilt due to past deeds of their parents without considering the rest of the psalm or other biblical sources on this topic.
In fact, the Bible says just the opposite: "As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him. He remembers them and cares for them forever." - Psalm 103:13-14
This passage tells us that the Lord has set aside time to watch over and care for his children. He will never forget any of them, but each one is unique so he gives them special attention according to how much they need it. The Bible also says that God has placed us in a world with people who do not know him where we might experience temptation. If we yield to these desires, they could damage our relationship with him and lead us down a path of sin. However, if we trust in him, he will always help us find a way out.
Bible verses about children and sin inheritance can be found throughout the Old Testament.
