19 Jun Contradictions
There is a lot of confusion in the Christendom due to the CONTRADICTIONS of theological beliefs; it’s funny how many theologians would say every child is born into this world as a sinner or with sin, yet the same people says if this child whom they say is born a sinner dies before the age of accountability, then he goes to heaven and not hell! If the children are born as SINNERS according to their theology, shouldn’t they go to hell when they die even before they reach the age of accountability?
I used to believe this theological sense until I started studying for myself 23yrs ago, then I discovered they coined out this theological belief out of misinterpretation of scriptures.
What exactly is the age of accountability? A question I asked a brother as a young christian in 1990, he told me age 7, and I believed and even taught the same to others, but one day I discovered that the JET AGE syndrome has produced millennials, children wiser than their ages, children who before they’re 7yrs old knows what people like us didn’t know back in the days when we were 15yrs old! Children that are exposed and are already EATING from THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF BOTH GOOD AND EVIL! How do we define accountability considering the different levels of exposure to what is evil, immoral or sinful?
We need to understand that a baby/child is born innocent and FREE OF SIN, but get influenced by the SYSTEM as he/she grows. We need to also understand that just as righteousness isn’t passed down from a parent to a child, so also sin nature isn’t passed down. Whatever is passed down is nothing but the HUMAN NATURE!
We also need to get the CONTEXT of David’s PSALM 51 so we don’t begin to contradict the finished work of grace via the cross.
For those who don’t know why David wrote Psalm 51, David’s mother wasn’t married to his father, she was more like a desired “prostitute” or SIDE CHIC to David’s father, they played “games” and she got pregnant for Jesse, no abortion in those days, she bore the son and that’s how David was born, in sin, through sin, according to the Jewish laws/constitution, David was a child of sin because he was born outside wedlock, and that’s why the child that was born from David and Bathsheba’s copulation game was also addressed as “the child of sin”, not because the child was a sinner, but because it came into the world from a sinful act! So, when David said to himself “in sin was I conceived and in sin was I born”, he was only saying that his mother’s sleeping with his father wasn’t legal and he came through such a union which was a sinful act. This is the context of Psalm 51, let’s stop generalising Psalm 51, it was a Psalm PARTICULARLY about David and how he was conceived and born through a sinful act and not a Psalm for the entire human race!
Ok, let’s even ASSUME that the context of psalm 51 is for the entire human race, this was before Christ came to die on the cross, so what happens to His death on the cross to deal with the POWER OF SIN, if sin is still powerful enough to hold a new born baby to ransome, this then rubbíshes the death of Christ over the sin power!
Brethren, a child begins to be held by sin when he starts to commit sin knowingly that it’s sin, not when he/she’s born into this world!
Here is the contradiction of this theology; since we believe that BABIES aren’t thrown into hell if they die, then how come that is so if we also hold the belief that every baby is born a SINNER?
So, if there’s sin in them at birth shouldn’t the baby go to hell at death?
You don’t have to agree with me on this!
