Myth Of Original Sin A T Overstreet

The following is a quote from the above.

" Most Christians who profess to believe in the doctrine of original sin are ignorant of exactly what the teachings really are. They are ignorant of the fact that the doctrine has not always existed. They are ignorant of the fact that it evolved, that it had it's roots in a heathen philosophy, and it was made a dogma of the Roman Catholic Church in the fifth century AD.They are ignorant of the fact that it is only a theory, and that there is really not one but several differing theories that have evolved and come down to us in the Church. They are also ignorant of the factt hat the Bible passages used as proof texts for this doctrine have been taken out of contcext and tortured  into teaching a doctrine that is completely foreign to the Bible. Finally they are ignorant of the fact that the doctrine of original sin is an evil doctrine that corrupts Christian practice, blackens the character of God, excuses sin in the sinner, contradicts the Bible, makes Jesus a sinner, harms the cause of Christ, and stumbles professing Christians into hell. And it is this ignorance of Christians concerning these facts that help to protect and perpetuate the doctrine of original sin" 

Food for thought.

I make no judgment as to your condition.Your comments have been noted as have many others from people living under similar circumstances.<br />
This post causes people that are the results of a teaching from man that we a born sinners, to have a second look and Mr Overstreet has done just that, the Bible declares sin to be transgression of the law, which is a conscious act, otherwise all children would die in Sin which would make God very unjust.

Thank you for actually writing back to me. I thought you would deny me as human and not write back. I just find your other quotes to be much the same as the one I referenced. Lacking in empathy. When I meet a person with no empathy, I assume they are sociopathic. <br />
<br />
We are not all the same. Not all "Trans" are the same. I awoke as a girl living in the body of a boy. Some of us awake as sportsmen with the body of a cripple. We live our lives in pursuit of body congruity with our souls. We either commit to a life of hell trying to make others such as yourself feel comfortable or we instead take a path that makes others uncomfortable but allows us some minor level of comfort in our own lives. <br />
LIfe for me has never been easy. I am sure that life for you has not been easy either. I do not ask for your acceptance for the decisions I make in my life. That is too much to ask anyone. What I ask of you is to alter the way in which you lead others to Jesus Christ. I know that you are doing good in your mind. But you needed to hear a sinner like myself put your deeds into perspective to see that you were actually being cruel. <br />
Reality is about perception. I think you may be a good man who is only misguided. This sinner will pray for you tonight that you can be a better example for people like me to follow. Then, sir, I will follow your lead, or, at least I will take your ideas into consideration and perhaps shape my own beliefs with a touch of your beliefs. Then you can say you really did something good, no?

I look to profiles as in many cases my critics are usually bent towards Homosexual activity or in your case trans.<br />
I am not here to debate these sins i have as you state my own to contend with.<br />
If you read the post you would have noticed it was not written by me but shared.

"What is sin? a wilful act performed by an individual that opposes Gods will<br />
" whosoever committeth sin transgreseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law' 1John 3:4"<br />
<br />
Is it God's will for a sinner such as yourself to judge and condemn other sinners or do you believe the literal words of our God? <br />
You do believe you are a sinner, no? <br />
<br />
"To him that knoweth to good, and doeth him not, to him it is sin" "James 4:17 the freewill to act contrary to Gods law is mans lot."<br />
<br />
Are you doing "good" to others here whom are curious and interested to learn more about Christ our father by condemning them to hell? Would you agree that your unnatural interest in "exposing the flaws" in another's personal religious beliefs instead of just offering to them a nurturing example of what your path and your beliefs are is really the best way to "serve" our Lord and Savior Christ? Some of these "wishful thinkers" are at least engaged and trying to better themselves. You are driving them away from Christ by being the judgmental kind of know-it-all jerk that people run away from. If they associate a life in Christianity with you, they will find another passion my friend, no? Could that mean you are an instrument of the Devil and be yet unaware?<br />

"Since Christ shared our human nature through his mother, why was he not considered guilty of adams sin? a man is guilty by what he does, not from a supposed inheritance. Behold this only have i found: that God made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions" Eccl 7:29"<br />
<br />
"This is something that only YOU have ever found? Millions of people read the Word of God everyday and ONLY YOU, the most loved of all Christ's followers have ever read or understood those words?"<br />
<br />
Pure Narcisistico! Is this not a sin in your religion? "They profess to know God, but they deny him by their actions. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work." Titus 1:16 (NRS)..."Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord', will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven." Mat 7:21 (NRS)<br />
<br />
"You are someone i can't get a handle on via your profile."<br />
<br />
Do you study a person's profile before you comment looking for weaknesses in their character in order to condemn and punish them for not following your beliefs? Why would you not just answer their questions honestly and without the flavor of their sins? If you have a convincing and honest thought, you will not need to discredit their words by their profile. Your words will stand alone as being profound on their own if hey are good words, no? <br />
<br />
"Your reasoning is foreign to me i sense a little bit of Calvanism with a bit of human philosophy and wishful thinking, no offence meant but i do not know your age, your gender, nor how you approach the Bible."<br />
<br />
Again, these things do not matter. You sir are the worst kind of hypocrite. My age is not important if what I say is the truth. My philosophy is neither important nor relevant. Only my words are seen in this forum. Only the words are important. <br />
<br />
"the Bible states you sin, you die, physical death. is there such a thing as an age where right and wrong can be discerned."<br />
<br />
Again, do you admit that you too are a sinner, as God has said in the Bible? Is the bible from which you are so fond of quoting also a "heathen" source of information if it does not always agree with you? If sir, you admit you are a sinner, AND if sir, you really believe what you wrote...then you sir will die the same physical death that I will die as I am a sinner extraordinaire. But at least my sins are not driving the good children away from Christ. I am just as wishful as anyone when it comes to permission to enter the kingdom of heaven. You too should be concerned. Only Christ knows these things. But at least I do not hide and pretend to be something that I am not. I am a Christian because I believe that Christ died for my sins. That is what a Christian is. You do not possess the I.D. tags for Christians and a real Christian does not need such recognition from you. His/her relationship with Christ is a personal one. <br />
<br />
" Moreover your little ones, that ye said should be a prey,and your children, that this day have no knowledge of good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them i will give it, and they shall possess it" Deut1:39. the age of these children is not known but the message is clear they did not<br />
have knowlege of good and evil."<br />
<br />
But you sir have no such excuse. You are not a child and you have an obligation to know what these words mean and how your own words can do harm to the ones who "know not what they mean". When you condemn these children, you hurt them. You are not saving them, you are driving them away from the only thing that can save them, no? You admit you do not even know the age to whom you write such words of hate. <br />
<br />
We will pray for you. <br />
Look at my profile, see that I too am an honest sinner. <br />
We sinners easily recognize other sinners and I have recognized you for what you are. A narcisistic, evil man who wishes to wash his own sins by condemning the sins of others. You can not save me sir. You can only save yourself. You can not save any of these people. They are alone responsible for their own salvation. All you are is mean.

You are someone i can't get a handle on via your profile.<br />
Your reasoning is foreign to me i sense a little bit of Calvanism with a bit of human philosophy and wishful thinking, no offence meant but i do not know your age, your gender, nor how you approach the Bible. the Bible states you sin, you die, physical death. is there such a thing as an age where right and wrong can be discerned.<br />

What is sin? a wilful act performed by an individual that opposes Gods will<br />
" whosoever committeth sin transgreseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law' 1John 3:4<br />
"To him that knoweth to good, and doeth him not, to him it is sin" James 4:17 the freewill to act contrary to Gods law is mans lot.<br />
Since Christ shared our human nature through his mother, why was he not considered guilty of adams sin? a man is guilty by what he does, not from a supposed inheritance. Behold this only have i found: that God made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions" Eccl 7:29

What do you believe in its place?
