    Default I'm stumped can someone answer this please

    Where is the justice in punishing us for Adam's sin? The Bible itself says that children will not be punished for the parents' sins (Deuteronomy 24:16). Furthermore, if God really created Adam not knowing either good or evil (Genesis 3:22), how could such a harsh and enduring punishment as death for Adam and all his descendants possibly be just? Our secular courts are more just than God when they show mercy on people who cannot distinguish between right and wrong, such as children and the mentally handicapped. And why isn't this doctrine of original sin found anywhere in the Bible except in Paul's writings?

    Where does the Bible say that you are going to have to endure that?

    How interested are you in getting answers if you're spewing across all the forums on this site? In the space of one hour you have been "outraged" enough to promote your favorite websites, confused about three different things, and now this. Exactly how interested are you for answers when all your doing is spewing the same junk over everything?

    It's called "dead but dreaming." (He knows what I mean.)

    Well you and I aren't punished for Adam's sin. Death and sin entered the world through Adam, it entered the world and it abounds in the world. Since we live in the world at one time or another we will probably succumb to sin, like it is written, all have gone astray. So we will be punished for our own sins, not for Adam's sin, just like the verse you cited; the sons aren't going to be punished for the sins of the fathers nor the fathers for the sins of the sons.

    So then Paul's writings make sense, where sin abounds grace must therefore much more abound. God sent Jesus his Son in the flesh into the world to reconcile and save us. Through one man then Christ Jesus life entered the world. But save us from what? Well to save us from the world and the sins within it which carry with them death. So then we can see how not only is God supremely just, but also supremely merciful.

    Gods plan was paradise for mankind.Man blew it because of his disobedience to Gods command.then to give man a second chance,God sent his only begotten Son=Jesus who knew no sin, to bear the sin of mankind through his death,burial and resurrection the completely innocent one paid the full price for all of us guilty ones John 3;16-17 so that we enjoy righteousness through Jesus and instead of the death sentence we deserve,we can through Jesus receive relationship with God and spend eternity in his presence,if that isnt being faithful and just to mankind
    I dont know what is.Study Psalm 103 it will teach you about Gods true love justice forgiveness and lovingkindness towards humanity his prize creation.Hope u now get it.
