The first mention of the concept of Original Sin is found, not in Genesis, where the fatal event was supposed to happen, but in the fifth chapter of Romans, written by Paul. According to Paul, humanity was cursed because Adam sinned when he ate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Is Original Sin is a doctrine created by Christianity and imposed upon Jewish scriptures?

Shan, that is a dumb ass excuse. You see things you want to because either you've been taught to think that's what those verses mean, or because you need validation so badly, you see what you want to see. One should not have to already BE a Christian in order to understand your book. That defeats the whole purpose of bringing people to your God, doesn't it? You should not have to pray to a god you don't yet believe in to open your eyes to what is written in your instruction manual of faith. It's absurd to say the least.

eema.gray, thank you for your answer and it's makes perfect, logical sense. I have come to believe that Christians have hijacked the OT and have tacked on their own book to it, using OT verses to try and create the illusion that it's a continuation when in reality, it's anything BUT.
