    "We're not sinners because we come into the world neutral, and later commit sin" . I don't argue that we are "born neutral" but we certainly are not born guilty. We are very much sinners because we actually sin.

    Ezekiel 18:4 (NRSV)
    " Know that all lives are mine; the life of the parent as well as the life of the child is mine: it is only the person who sins that shall die. "

    Ezekiel 18:20 (NRSV)
    "The person who sins shall die. A child shall not suffer for the iniquity of a parent, nor a parent suffer for the iniquity of a child; the righteousness of the righteous shall be his own, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be his own."

    Ezekiel 18:31-32 (NRSV)
    Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed against me, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel?
    For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, says the Lord God. Turn, then, and live.

    It's not the notion of sin that puzzles me but the extent of our GUILT since we are all born this way to no fault of our own as implied in Ezekiel 18.
