Was I born guilty or innocent? Once that I have believed and have been baptized, do I still have that “sinful nature“? If so then why is it that the old man yet lives when by the act of baptism the old man has been put to death and through faith in Jesus Christ I have been made a new creature? I believe “Sinful Nature” is a hoax–a lie–put in place by the father of lies. Cannot it be understood as to why and how this deception has infected the church? Ecclesiastes 7:29, 1Corinthians 11:7 and James3:9.
