Well kb, I have to disagree with your comment about adam and Eve. I won't argue that people are filled with sin, but it our choices. (ANd I don't think a two year old can make a choice to sin, though a en year old could. I would never accuse anyone of being a sinner unless I knew of a specific sin, AND by pointing out the sin I could help that person)

Just because Eve was the first to sin does not mean that if she hadden't we would all be living sin free in the garden of eden. She could make the wrong decisions, and her decendants could have done it too. Would they have? I don't know, but I tend to think that someplace along the way someone would have.

I have enough sins of my own, without adding on a sin that I wasn't even around for. Fortuntly I beleive in a loving God who doesn't want to give me the punishment I deserve, and made provision for that. (Rather strange way to do it, but I'm not complaining)

PS, yes I know that we are marked in some way, but that doesn't say marked with sin, rather marked because of the sin. We don't have to add that sin unto ourself.
