Out of curiosity, how do Roman Catholics come to their conclusion of the of everyone being born with inherent sin?
The Holy Fathers, hold that when Adam sinned against God, he introduced death to the world. Since all men are born of the same human stock as Adam, all men inherit death. Death means that the life of every human being comes to an end (mortality); but also that death generates in us the passions (anger, hate, lust, greed, etc.), disease and aging. As do Orthodox.
I guess what I’m asking is, how come in the West the developed a completely different understanding of the Adam and Eve situation and who in the West came up with this idea?
