From what I understand Augustine was the first to introduce the idea of original sin. Did anyone before Augustine state that Adam and Eve's sin was a punishment to all humanity?

  • "Adam and Eve's sin was a punishment to all humanity" Do you mean that all humanity was punished for Adam and Eve's sin? – curiousdannii Oct 11 '18 at 7:28
  • @curiousdannii whats the difference between the two? Punishment to all humanity or all humanity punished? – Crisett Oct 11 '18 at 7:35
  • Good question! But it looks very similar to an older one that might provide some insight, so I've closed this as a duplicate. – Nathaniel is protesting Oct 11 '18 at 13:01
