Thus, all humans became sinners. In his book “Forgiveness philosophy in Christianity”, Awad Sama’n said, “As Adam, the father of all humans, has lost the straight life, in which God has created him, by his sin and became sinner before he has children, all his children will be sinners. Wherever we look, we find that there is no change of God’s law, thus, the inspiration said, " One man sin entered into the world ." (Romans 5:12-21). 2 Colony (a Protestant scholar) described the passing of the sin as the spread of a disease. He said, “When we say: we deserve God’s punishment because of Adam’s sin that does not mean that we were innocent, and carried unjustly Adam’s sin… Actually, we did not inherit from Adam the punishment only, but the sin as well.

WAS JESUS CRUCIFIED FOR OUR ATTONMENT? ) 110 ( comes into being as a sinner because of his own sin, not because of someone else’s.” 1 Christians’ scholars sensed the injustice of this belief to humanity; they tried to justify it, to make people accept it without objections. Nodra Al yazejy said, “Adam represents human, who was in blessings and he lost it, thus, when Adam lost the blessing every human lost it as well; because Adam’s sin is every human’s sin. it does not mean that the sin passes by inheritance because it is not a heritage or a legacy. It means that Adam the human committed a sin, and then all human committed a sin, every one committed a sin, because he is a human.” 2 Criticizing the philosophy of the sin inheritance The previous justifications and explanation do not convince anyone who believes that the inheritance of the original sin is injustice, which too far from Allah (S.W.). It is wrong to describe the inheritance of the sin as the spread of disease; we cannot choose a disease and, unlike the sin, the state of being ill is not punishable. Moreover, separating the body from the soul, and saying that sins pass from spirit to the body is wrong, because a human commits a sin by both body and soul. The human being is made of both of them and lives by them, but Adam is not made of himself and his children. Thus, we insist on that the sin inheritance is a kind of injustice, which cannot be attributed to Allah (S.W.), the Almighty. There is no evidence of this illegible belief in the Torah, but there is evidence of its opposite, which disprove the sin inheritance, and assures that every one is responsible for what one does. Among that evidence: - "The soul that sinneth, it shall die: the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the 1 - The Original Sin between Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Omayma Shaheen, pp 140 -141.
