Most of us are taught that we are born in sin, and that only through a relationship with Jesus Christ can we fellowship with God Almighty. While the second part is true, there are verses of the Bible which may not completely agree with the first. This book is an adventure in the Bible, seeking the truth from God's Word on this doctrine.

The doctrine of being born in sin has been adopted by the Catholic and Protestant churchs for centuries. But, why would a loving God send a newborn infant to the world with the handicap of being born in sin? There are many verses which are used to support this doctrine, but there are also other verses in God's Word which seem to be in conflict with it. If Jesus was born in every way as we are, then if we are born in sin, wouldn't Jesus also have had to be born in sin? If He had been, then He wouldn't have been able to become the Perfect Sacrifice for our sins. How can these two facts be reconcilled? The Bible truly says that 'all have sinned and come short of the glory of God', but it also clearly says that Jesus never sinned. This book is an attempt to examine scriptures on both sides of the issue, and to see where it leads us. Let's go on an adventure in God's Word!
