BIBLE STUDY DISCUSSION
FOR DEEP THINKERS
True or false?
Will people burn in hell forever because of Adam's sin?
Where did this doctrine come from?
For most people, original sin is a horrible doctrine that is impossible to reconcile with a just and loving God.
This doctrine is a serious stumbling block in Christianity, but most Christians have never open the Bible to see what the Bible really says about it, if anything. inherited sin, guilt and punishment.
Churches have been teaching inherited sin and guilt from Adam ever since the doctrine was popularized by Saint Augustine sixteen hundred years ago. Christians rarely open the Bible and come to this conclusion from their own study. Most Christians simply believe without question what their particular church tradition has been telling them.
In this study, we set aside tradition and open the Bible to determine for ourselves whether or not the Bible teaches the doctrine of original sin.
A personal conclusion regarding this doctrine is important for a clear understanding of the character of God.
