No, I don't...but I also don't believe He was accusing individual men either.Spiritblade Disciple wrote: ↑Sun Jun 14, 2020 1:20 amHyperbole?Hill Top wrote: ↑Sun Jun 14, 2020 12:17 amI think you are allowing hyperbole to cross over into doctrine.Spiritblade Disciple wrote: ↑Sat Jun 13, 2020 6:22 pmFor the children of the wicked, they sin as soon as they are born, when they speak their first lie. See Psalms 58:3.
For that to happen, sin must have been conceived in their heart much earlier and allowed time to gestate and come to fruition. Thus, these children are already in spiritual fornication with the devil before birth to have time for these lies to come to fruition. See James 1:14-15. Just as John was filled with the Spirit of God in the womb, so the children of the wicked are filled with the spirit of the devil in the womb.
For such, the psalmist prayed that they would be miscarried (see Ps. 58:8).
Do you think Jesus was using hyperbole when He judged the Scribes and Pharisees of having killed Zechariah (which happened long before they were even conceived? See Matthew 23:35.
He was facing off against a long culture of wickedness.
No man pays for another man's sins.I do not. I think His judgment of the Scribes and Pharisees He was speaking to follows the same logic as Levi paying tithes while he was still in Abraham's loins. See Hebrews 7:9-10. People do things even before conception and receive credit for their actions.
"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 righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him." (Ezek 18:20)
Men can't be accused of a sin they didn't commit.And, in the same way that Levi paid tithes in Abraham, all people that were in Adam's loins, ate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil when Adam partook and are guilty of committing that sin so long as they remain in Adam. Thus, the need for children to be sanctified, or set apart, out of Adam.
