Why do we teach this doctrine called "Original Sin" or "The Sin Nature"? Can God really punish me for doing what is my nature to do? Isn't that like punishing a dog for barking? Seems kind of contradictory to the Character of God to punish people who do what their nature is inclined to do? How can you punish a sinner for being a sinner if it's his nature? Now if we have a free will without a sin nature and we just CHOOSE to sin by FREE WILL, then that makes more sense to me. Can there really be a such a thing as free will if we have a sin nature? Please give me your scriptures to show that we have a sin nature. What about verses like these? Eze 18:19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. Eze 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be Deu 24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin. let's hear them responses. Let me just say I am not convinced that Original Sin/The Sin Nature is false doctrine, But I more than likely will argue against the doctrine for the sake of good dialogue, I will play devils advocate.
