What is original sin and does baptism take it away?
Answer: The only original sin in the
human race was the disobedience of Adam is eating of the forbidden
5:18. The term "original
sin" has been coined by a religious group that teaches it is the sin
that you are born with or in. This is true as
51:5 states, "Behold I was
shapened in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me."
David is saying he was born a sinner. Our sin by birth is taken
away, not by water, but by the Lamb of God that was slain.
"Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world." Man
will not be judged for whom he IS but only for what he has DONE
20:12 "...they were judged
every man according to their works."
Baptism does not take away any kind of sin. It is a symbol of the
death, burial and resurrection of Christ. This is the gospel. This
alone is what takes away sin. "Without the shedding of blood there
is no remission"
9:22,. "...the blood of
Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin." A child does not
need baptism to cleanse it from sin. The blood of Christ does it.
This is why a small child can go to heaven before their age of
accountability. When that child becomes old enough to know they are
sinning against God, then they must repent and trust Christ to take
away what they have DONE, not what they ARE. Every child and adult,
as such, must repent or perish
They must believe in order to be forgiven.
"... whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins."
Are your sins forgiven? Have you trusted in the blood of Christ for
cleansing? Many are trusting in baptism that can never take away
sin. Do trust in the Saviour and be saved today.
