4WD— “First, none of that [Sodom & Gomorrah] is the result of Adam’s Fall. Neither your sins nor mine are the results of Adam’s Fall; nor can they be blamed on Adam, or even Satan for that matter. Our sins fall squarely on our own shoulders and on no one else’s”
PAUL— “Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man,” or because of one man, “and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned” [Rom. 5:12].
Prior to Adam’s Fall, sin did not exist in the world. If Adam had never sinned, homosexuality—nor any other sin—would never have surfaced. True, “our sins fall squarely on our own shoulders,” but the genesis of sin originated “through one man”—Adam.
Even the ground was cursed because of Adam’s Fall. Because Adam listened to the voice of his wife and ate of the tree, “cursed is the ground because of you” [Gen 3:17-18]. To phrase it another way, “Or because of your sin.”
The results of Adam’s Fall are biblically clear, plain, and explicit. Sin “came into the world through one man.” Adam’s sin became the root of all sin in that his sin opened the door and introduced to the world all evil and corruption. Although he himself was not charged with all sinful activity that followed, yet he unsealed and inaugurated what followed. “Just as sin came into the world through one man.”—Paul.
