St Augustine, who largely devised the theory of original sin, thought that original sin was transmitted from generation to generation through sexual intercourse. Augustine did not say exactly how this happened.

If it is inevitable, it is not culpable, and therefore not sin.
Inevitable in that we will, not that we must. We can resist, but none of us fully do. That is one of the reasons why everyone needs/needed/will need Jesus.

Because they have no choice but to 'sin', presumably.
Again, I never said that.

Seems you've got this backward. He didn't sin because his divine nature prevented it. At least, that's the theory. I personally don't agree with the theory, but

Understandably, the medium in which we operate (discussion forum) forces all of us to simplify. I just think that it's possible, particularly with this topic, not to oversimplify. However, I think you've nailed it on the head with your second statement:

You can make almost anything "biblical" in a volume as various, extended, complex, and multi-genred as the bible (Jewish, Christian, or especially combo). All you need to do is ignore those aspects of it that cause trouble for your view. That's what happens in spades with fundamentalists. I'm a recovering fundamentalist myself, so I get where they're coming from. But here they're just plain wrong.

I'd also argue that the Roman Catholic Church is just plain wrong and the Eastern Orthodox are just plain right. The Orthodox, some 1600 years ago, realized where this doctrine would lead to, a kind of stultifying and draconian form of political and social leverage of the clergy over the (emerging) laity. And boy, has it ever done that!

Of course I read it, Emu, but my point holds.

Nor did I ever deny we deal with the consequences.

The fact remains that some groups still claim sin IS inherited, which is why I pointed out that scripture states otherwise.

Peace,

Bruce

The Baha'i scriptures state this explicitly!:

Thank you, Bruce. I must say that I am never totally convinced by scriptures that are translated into 'King James' English.
