Biblical Quote of the Day 8.10.2007

"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" ~ Romans 5:12

This is a passage referring to Jesus. Here is what this passage is saying: because of one person's (Adam) mistake, everyone that has lived is diseased with sin. This sort of logic goes against every sense of what is just. It reminds me of the Thomas Paine quote, "The declaration which says God visits the sins of the fathers upon the children...is contrary to every principle of moral justice."

Well, if this is a messed up situation, God surely must have solved it, right? Yep, he did. How did he do it? To solve this problem, God killed an innocent person. It wasn't just any person, but his own son.

God punishes eveyrone for stuff that someone else does, and then he fixes it by killing his son. More Biblical logic for you.

Hey, nice job on the site!

I have a Rabi friend who would say that the parable of Adam and Eve is written in Hebrew poetry, much like the Psalms. People really would believe that "...the sun rises and sets..." but that the earth revolves around it, but that doesn't make for good poetry. :) So this chunk here (Gen. 1-2chptrs) is not necessarily intended to be an explanation of the reason for sin, but an illustration of the nature of man. This is a point that's been argued through out time (is man good or evil at heart). Anyway, I stumble across some random posts of yours and dug them but thought you might want to use a different proof text of some kind. Anyway, kudos on a well laid-out site!
