Trying to understand Original Sin in light of OT. From what I understand so far, is that Adam's sin of eating from the tree is past down and everyone born has this sin on their record. Since self exalting sin produces anger and depression, the authority of parents produces self exaltation. Faith in authority therefore becomes a learned trait. If the parents however have learned the faith, their rise to anger and depression has been cast off and the child becomes raised holy.
This Sin is only washed away if one is Baptized, so if a child born dies at say 6 months will go to Hell because they have this Sin. Death occurs as a result of sin (Romans 6:23) or as a removal of the righteous from the wicked (Isaiah 57:1).
Women suffer labor pains because of this Sin, and men are put in charge over them. Men will toil on earth because of this Sin until the end of time. Yes, because the law is perfect and is active.
God is also just and this sin has to be paid for. And so it has, to learn how to cash in is the difficultly.
The Old Testament makes no reference to this sin Actually much is said about the result of the sin, but instead of pointing out how they all work together I do not want to distract from the answer that was provided.
So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic. (Isaiah 28:16)
Then later he says
Your covenant with death will be annulled... (Isaiah 28:18)
In fact it teaches that you will not bear the burden of anyone else. How is this fact reconciled? I need reference to this to answer.
Was this original Sin only for Christians and not for the previous generations? Original Sin stands against all who does not believe that Jesus will fulfill the law.
Do Catholics believe that God is not able to forgive Sin? No, Catholic believe in the absolution of sins.
So then how does one overcome original sin? the Stages of Grief show us that after Denial follows Anger, Bargaining, and Depression (self anger) now through the forgiveness offered by the death of Jesus we have communion with acceptance (John 15). Now the offensive truth may come at anytime, and Mark 13 expresses this with an analogy of the spirit being held within a building. The truth will shine in one of two known methods, either what is being said to you is known to yourself as a lie so that the truth shines from within, or the truth shines on you. For either way though, embarrassment is a good sign that the test has begun.
With each truth the spirit has only three responses. Either we accept the truth, having faith in the sacrifice, or the faith that Jesus will repay, or we deny God and exalt ourselves as with is the old usual, the original sin. Our bodies are the temple so when pride fills the heart "the abomination that causes desolation" stands where it does not belong. So as Mark 13 explains when this happened avoid the house get away from the "Lawless One", but if it you yourself that has been tossed into rage. Know the condemnation is coming, stop (repent) accept, and regain the holy spirit.
Now he has told us the times to watch for this test with the parable of the fig tree. When you get soft and you are about to bear fruit.
But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. (Matthew 24:43)
So keep watch or or be torn down, or you may tear yourself down.
For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. (Matthew 23:12)
Anger is caused by the decision to fix the threatening behavior (psychology). So don't decide to fix it! Have Faith that God will! If you do this your spirit will remain pure in the sight of the Lord.
