Biblical Contradiction of the Original Sin

The following are some extracts from the Bible itself, which contradict this theory of original sin:-

"The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the inequity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him". (Ezekiel, 18.20). This extract proves that one who sins suffers for it and dies, not his father or son, and the son does not bear the responsibility of the father and vice-versa. The weight of the sin will be on nobody but the sinner himself.

Jesusí own words recorded in the Bible indicate towards the falsity of this theory and its innovation. Jesus said,

"Every good tree brings forth good food" (Matt 7:17).

When Jesus was blamed by the Pharisees for eating with the sinners he replied to them saying,

"For I am not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." (Matt 9:13)

As apparent, Jesus divided people into two categories: the sinners and the righteous, a classification which proves the existence of people free of the so called original sin.

For more emphasis on the falsehood of the original sin theory and how the Bible contradicts this church artwork, read this following statement of Jesus,

"By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." (Matt 12:37). Jesus here establishes clearly that everyone will be held accountable for their own words, which reflects on personal responsibility and individuality and negates the original sin assumption.

We conclude with the fact that Jesus did not preach or teach this belief, it is one of the many church fabricated doctrines. What Jesus preached is clear from the above as well as the following:

"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete it shall be measured to you again," said Jesus.(Matt 7:1-2).

"Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven," said Jesus. (Matt 19:14).
