am a Christian and do not believe in inherited sin.
Original sin is not inherited sin. The doctrine of original sin is that "in" Adam all have sinned. This parallels the doctrine of justification that "in" Christ all are righteous as explained in Rom. 5:12-19. God chose to create humans with a nature elevated above other animals. Adam and Eve were endowed with sanctifying grace as a gift not just to them but to their posterity. Unfortunately, they lost this gift for themselves and for us, and so now we are born deprived of sanctifying grace. This has consequences. While original sin itself is the deprivation of sanctifying grace, it also carries with it a fallen and corrupt nature, which is the stain of original sin.
