ADAMS SIN IS THE CAUSE OF THE SINFUL LIFESTYLES AND ACTIONS WE SEE TODAY IN OTHERS AND OUR SELVES; HIS SIN IS THE CAUSE OF THE 100% DEATH RATE IN OUR WORLD STILL TODAY. WHEN HE SINNED WE ALL SINNED V12, 15, 17, 18. PAUL IS NOT CONVEYING THIS IS WHY WE SIN TODAY- THAT IS TRUE BUT WHAT HE IS TRYING TO CONVEY....

IS THAT ADAMS SIN IS OUR SIN: PAUL IS SAYING THAT ADAM IS OUR REPRESENTATIVE OF THE WHOLE OF HUMANITY. WE ARE CONNECTED MEMBERS OF ONE ANOTHER AND TO ADAM.


FOR EXAMPLE DAVID CAMEROON IS TO THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY WHAT GORDON BROWN IS TO THE LABOUR PARTY THEY ARE BOTH LEADERS. THE PARTY MEMBERS ARE CONNECTED TO ITS LEADER ITS LEADER IS CONNECTED TO ITS PARTY MEMBERS. IF THE LEADER FALLS IT EFFECTS THE PARTY AS A WHOLE THE PARTY STANDS AND FALLS BY ITS LEADER.


ANOTHER EXAMPLE RECENTLY IN THE EUROPEAN CUP FINAL 2008 WHEN JOHN TERRY MISSED THE PENALTY ON BEHALF OF CHELSEA TT EFEECTED THE WHOLE TEAM. THEY LOST COLLECTIVLY.


ADAM REPRESENTED US ALL, AS A RESULT WHEN ADAM SINNED WE SINNED.. BIBLICALLY ITS SEEN IN THE FOLLOWING TEXTS: HEB 7:9 -10 LEVI WAS IN THE BODY OF ABRAHAM JOS 7:1,11 ACHAN STOLE TREASURE FROM JERICHO –ISRAEL WAS INCLUDED ACTS 4:27. THE CRUCIFIXION WAS NOT JUST PILATES WORK BUT OUR TOO HEB 6:6, IF WE TURN AWAY WE ARE CRUCIFYING THE LORD ALL OVER AGAIN.


SO NONE OF US ARE ABLE TO SAY WHY I SHOULD BE BLAMED FOR SOMETHING SOMEONE ELSE DID......LET’S BE HONEST WE ALL MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES ; BUT THE FACT IS YOU WERE THERE, WHEN ADAM SINNED YOU SINNED YOU WERE IN THE BODY OF ADAM YOU CAME FROM HIM. THIS IS OUR HUMAN SOLIDARITY.
