ANSWERING CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY : ORIGINAL SIN
Christian doctrine of Original Sin is refuted by Christ’s Original Holiness explanation!
Original sin, also called ancestral sin, is the Christian doctrine of humanity’s state of sin resulting from the fall of man, stemming from Adam and Eve’s rebellion in Eden, namely the sin of disobedience in consuming from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Islamic Belief: Man is Holy by nature (original innocence)
Christian belief: Man is sinful by nature (original sin)
Source of Christian belief: Man made Doctrines.
Source of Islamic Belief: God Made Man in His Image from His Spirit. So man is Holy by nature.
See Genesis and Sahih Al Bukhari, see Sura-at THEEN
Genesis 9:6 “Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made mankind.
Quran 95:4 We have certainly created man in the best of stature;
Quran 17:70 And We have certainly honoured the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.
It is authentically reported from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him)in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al-Bukhari and Muslim) that he (peace be upon him) said: “Allah created Adam in His own image.” In a narration by Ahmad and some scholars of Hadith, the same Hadith reads: “in the image of Al-Rahman (the Most Merciful)“. In the first Hadith, the pronoun refers to Allah.
CHRIST REFUTES ORIGINAL SIN:
And in the Gospel of Matthew 18:3 :NIV And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Mark 10:15 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:17 Truly I tell you, if anyone does not receive the kingdom of God like a little child, he will never enter it.”
