Victory Over Death

What is Original Sin?
It is not a particular act of disobedience.
is the nature of human beings.
We are not sinful because of our sin, but we sin because we are sinful.
Sin pervades us to the core.
We are bad trees.
How then can God blame us for our sin.
Different Theories of how!
Realism
Some how we were all there.
God would never hold someone accountable for someone else’s sin.
So our earthly birth is only the point in which our tainted souls become physical.
tells us that Levi paid tribute to Melchizedek.
Not Real
The story of Adam and Eve is a parable.
We are all born neutral but we just eventually sin.
The Bible teaches he was real.
The major question is: Why are not more people living the perfect life?
Sin is imposed on us by society.
How did society become so universally corrupt.
Protestant View
Federalism: Adam was our representative.
He was a perfect representative.
So we are totally accountable.
Representation and imputation are the basis of original sin and salvation.
We are only saved by representation
We are only redeemed by imputation.
If God can save mankind based on one man’s work, it is only right that God punish on the same grounds.
The verses
Death entered via sin.
What died?
Both physical and spiritual.
How do we know all men are sinners? All men die. (vs 13)
When does the law begin?
Death reigned from Adam to Moses. (vs 14)
Paul draws the comparison between the first Adam and the second. Or the first representative and the ultimate representation. (vs 15)
The power and the gift of God far exceed the damage done. (vs 16-17)
Is Paul promoting universal salvation? (vs 18-19)
In context, we have already been told not everyone is saved.
The law was added to expose sin not create it. (vs 20)
What law was added?
There is a greater measure of grace in the world than there is sin. (vs 21)
Grace restrains sin. It cannot step outside of the bounds.
