Death was before man’s “ancestral sin”, and because of preceding Death, all men will sin. Death does not cause man to sin, it’s solely his inheritance, by reason, that all men sin. The resulting guilt from the act of sin remains exclusively with the perpetrator; never is one’s personal guilt transferable unto another (i.e., a descendent). Our inheritance is not “original sin”, it is pre-existing Death. Before (Genesis) man was created, Death existed, arguably poised for the inevitability of man. And yet, it is said that we now have Life– the divine (Logos) utterance of God: Jesus– the Word, manifested. Why else would man be the very fulcrum of the cosmos– what better answer could there be other than: a man? Why else would we be so ultimately crucial to the macro-existence of it all?
