Christian theology doesn't say that humans were created with original sin. It's the result of the "Fall" - Adam and Eve's taking the forbidden fruit.

It's more of an "acquired characteristic". :)

Altough how it can then be passed to subsequent generations, I'm not sure! :laughter:

I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to those who love me and keep my commandments.
Exodus 20:5–6
And those of us who are pretty certain that God doesn't exist? Well we are just fine and dandy :party:
