Original Righteousness and the Last Adam Romans 5:8-21
A cursory reading of these verses reveal that generations past and present have been afflicted by the transgression of one man. Sin is the disabler of the very best and brightest of persons.

The first Adam, mentioned in Genesis, who has made sin as normal as the rising and the setting of the sun, also enjoyed an original righteousness.
