>>"Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned— for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law." NIV
Some have a real hard time with the concept of sin being passed onto the world through Adam. For those that do not "believe" IN Christ, I don't blame them - it sounds like "foolishness" to them (as the Bible says). For those that "believe" IN Christ:

The quote above is something that many people have problems with, Adam passing on to man his sin. I have had problems understanding why but I have learned that just because I haven’t grasped a concept doesn’t make it any less not true. Although I had accepted this, today I have had a revelation as to why, and possibly, how Adam passed on his sin to us like a virus or bacteria. (Note: Revelation is only revelation when it is revelation to you)

Sin is an offence, a trespass and in order to offend or trespass, specifically God rules and regulations, all one must do is not do what He has said.

And out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight or to be desired--good (suitable, pleasant) for food; the tree of life also in the center of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of [the difference between] good and evil and blessing and calamity. [Rev. 2:7; 22:14, 19.] (Genesis 2:9 AMP)

Adam broke the command God had given (Note God addressed both him and the woman as Adam) when he/they ate and death entered the world. Death is an offence to God because; “In the Beginning …” death was not an issue. Man was created to live eternally so even if someone is very, very good and doesn’t do anything that we call sin, in God’s economy we sin the moment we are born because our body immediately marches toward death and disease, sin.

We gradate sin; we have big sins, little sins and inbetween sins but to God sin is sin.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23 KJV)

And all who depend on the Law [who are seeking to be justified by obedience to the Law of rituals] are under a curse and doomed to disappointment and destruction, for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed (accursed, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment) be everyone who does not continue to abide (live and remain) by all the precepts and commands written in the Book of the Law and to practice them. [Deut. 27:26.] (Galatians 3:10 AMP)

For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 AMP)

Note the above does not say sins or big sins or especially griveious sins—it just says “sin.”

Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection was to bring us back to the, “In the Beginning …” state.

And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished forever) in and unto victory. [Isa. 25:8.] O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? [Hos. 13:14.] Now sin is the sting of death, and sin exercises its power [upon the soul] through [the abuse of] the Law. But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:54-57 AMP)

Grace and peace,
