"Original Sin" Email dated April 14, 2023
original sin refers to mans's state of separation from god. Through the all into sin, mankind has distanced itself from God.
This is a fundamental state, so every human being is a sinner, even if no individual sin has yet been committed.
Through baptism, original sin is washed away. God lifts the state of permanent separation from Him. God grants the baptized into a first close relationship with Him and is enabled to have fellowship with him.
Neverless, the inclination to sin remains and every human being is dependent on God's grace.
A baby is not guilty, but every human being is initially distanced from God.
