Chapter VI – Of the Fall of Man, of Sin, and of the Punishment thereof.

Our first parents, being seduced by the subtlety and temptation of Satan, sinned in eating the forbidden fruit.(1) This their sin, God was pleased, according to His wise and holy counsel, to permit, having purposed to order it to His own glory.(2)

(1) Ge 3:13; 2Co 11:3

(2)          Ro 11:32

 

  1. By this sin, they fell from their original righteousness and communion with God,(1) and so became dead in sin,(2) and wholly defiled in all the parts and faculties of soul and body.(3)

(1)                Ge 3:6,7,8; Ecc 7:29; Ro 3:23

(2)                Ge 2:17; Eph 2:1

(3)                Tit 1:15; Ge 6:5; Jer 17:9; Ro 3:10-18

 

iii.                 They being the root of all mankind, the guilt of this sin was imputed,(1) and the same death in sin and corrupted nature conveyed to all their posterity, descending from them by ordinary generation.(2)

(1)                Ge 1:27,28; Ge 2:16,17; Ac 17:26; Ro 5:12,15,16,17,18,19; 1Co 15:21,22,45,49

(2)                Ps 51:5; Ge 5:3; Job 14:4; Job 15:14

 

  1. From this original corruption, whereby we are utterly indisposed, disabled, and made opposite to all good,(1) and wholly inclined to all evil,(2) do proceed all actual transgressions.(3)

(1)                Ro 5:6; Ro 8:7; Ro 7:18; Col 1:21

(2)                Ge 6:5; Ge 8:21 ; Ro 3:10,11,12

(3)                Jas 1:14,15; Eph 2:2,3; Mt 15:19

 

  1. This corruption of nature, during this life, doth remain in those that are regenerated;(1) and although it be through Christ pardoned and mortified, yet both itself, and all the motions thereof, are truly and properly sin.(2)

(1)                1Jn 1:8,10; Ro 7:14,17,18,23; Jas 3:2; Pr 20:9; Ecc 7:20

(2)                Ro 7:5,7,8,25; Gal 5:17

 

  1. Every sin, both original and actual, being a transgression of the righteous law of God, and contrary thereunto,(1) doth, in its own nature, bring guilt upon the sinner,(2) whereby he is bound over to the wrath of God,(3) and curse of the law,(4) and so made subject to death,(5) with all miseries spiritual,(6) temporal,(7) and eternal.(8)

(1)                1Jn 3:4

(2)                Ro 2:15; Ro 3:9,19

(3)                Eph 2:3

(4)                Gal 3:10

(5)                Ro 6:23

(6)                Eph 4:18

(7)                Ro 8:20; La 3:39

(8)                Mt 25:41; 2Th 1:9

    Nonsense. Don’t let a slogan of blind faith deceive you. Actually Jesus doesn’t give the Eternal Life. Had he given it, the Christians would not have died but attained the immortality at once since the 1st century: the aging would not be any problem, neither poisons nor sickness.

    If Jesus had perfectly reconciled the men with God by giving them immortality, why do Christians still die?

  2. Anonymous says:

    No idea. The world is supposed to no more need any death of the forgiven Christians. Perhaps their deaths are considered as extra-payment for the sins of the dead believers *before* the time of Jesus?

  3. θ says:

    If Christians were consistent, they should accept they too are “saviors” and also “redeemers” of their brethren, as well as their deaths are “ransoms”. Hence, they too are divine? Jesus says he was a ransom for *many* right? he doesn’t say *all* or *almost all*. By so, Jesus doesn’t rule out any possibility that the Christians act as the ransoms like himself.
    After all, John’s Gospel says they were born from God as well, not from the flesh or will of men, per John 1:13.

  4. Anonymous says:

    Apparently there’s a shift of paradigm? Death is no more “curse” of God, nor punishment of iniquity, nor sting of sins, but rather a crown or trophy?
    Rev 2:10
    And ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

  5. θ says:

    Yes, firstly Christians cursed the death so much but then suddenly value it great, not only Jesus’ but also theirs. What religion they have.

    Facts:
    (i) Jesus doesn’t grant Christians the immortality. They still need to die. But for what? If they were atoned they are supposed to be immortal. After all, what for their death would be if Jesus’ death sufficed as ransom?

    (ii) Immortality was supposed to be attained by just eating the fruits of Tree of Life in Eden. It doesn’t mean that the fruits are divine, right?

    (iii) There’s no such a thing as “absolute forgiveness”. One still needs to die despite being forgiven before then having the Eternal Life with God.

  6. θ says:

    Mk 5
    18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
    Lk 8
    38 Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away,
    vs.
    Jn 6:37
    All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

    Jesus rejects a man who sought to be with him, yet he claims otherwise? Obviously Jesus doesn’t consider a close relationship with himself as important thing.
    If he were a God and wished to reconcile the sinners with himself, why does he sent them away far from him? why does he let them down separating and distancing himself when they sought to be with him always? Weird.
