Back in the Swing of Things

It has been awhile since I blogged. I think I need to change my cell phone plan and start mobile blogging. Not posting does not mean I haven't had ideas. I just haven't had the time to blog them.

After seeing swings on trains today, I started thinking. Maybe swings on trains aren't safe, but what about rocking chairs? I know it sounds a little crazy, but if it was secured to the floor on a base and maybe tethered to the wall of the bus or train with some sort of spring or stretchy twine/cable/elastic it might be just crazy enough to work. I think they would be calming to grumpy commuters. Also, who hasn't see and heard a grumpy child on the bus or train? If parent could sit and rock said child, it would be good for all.

Rocking chairs on public transportation: Yeah? Nay?

    Original Sin: a depravity, or tendency to evil, held to be innate in humankind and transmitted from Adam to all humans in consequence of his sin. [Ref:Dictionary .com]

    The doctrine of original sin is that all men inherited the guilt of Adam's sin and are sinners at birth.

    It gives absurdity a bad name to suggest that all men are born with a sinful spiritual DNA, of which they inherited from Adam and are therefore guilty of sin at birth.

    If men are born sinners, then they are born as fornicators, sodomites, drunkards, thieves, homosexuals, extortioners, murders, sorcerers, pedophiles and idolaters. Would God create men guilty of these sins, due to no fault of their own, and then condemn them to hell? If is not only irrational, but contrary to Scripture.

    Men are guilty of sin because they sin. They are not guilty of sin because of Adam's sin.

    Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the word, and death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NKJV)

    Spiritual death spread to all men, BECAUSE ALL SINNED.
    Physical death spread to all men because Adam sinned.

    No one is guilty sin until they commit sin.

    The unborn and small children are not capable of committing sin.

    The doctrine of original sin is absurd, nonsensical, irrational, illogical, and most importantly contrary to the doctrine of God.
