and every one of Adam's natural Race, are born or conceived in it : Rom. v. 12. "By one man sin " entered into the world, and death by fin; and so
death passed upon all men, for that all have sinI ned.' Pfal. li. 5. ' Behold, I was shapen in inirquity; and in lin did my mother conceive me.' It is derived to us from Adam the Origin of Man. kind, Rom. v. 12. forecited. And it is conveyed to us by natural Generation : Job xiv. 4. 'Who
can bring a clean thing out of an unclean ? not
one.' Psal. li. 5. forecited. Even holy Parents convey it to their Children; because they procreate their Children after their own natural Image : Gen. .V. 3. ' And Adam begat a son in his own likeness,
after his image; and called his name Seth. Now, our natural State is a sinful State, in respect of original Sin ; inasmuch as original Sin, being a Foun. tain of Sin, remains entire, in its Guilt, Filth, and Power, on every Man, as long as he is in that State. Original Sin consists of three Parts.
The first Part of original Sin, is the Guilt of A. dam's firit Sin. Adam's first Sin was the eating of the forbidden Fruit, whereby the Covenant of Works was broken. The Guilt of that Sin is an Obligation to Punishment for it. And that Guilt lies on all Men by Nature : Rom. v. 18. ' By the • offence of one judgment came upon all men Ito condemnation. Now, this Guilt of Adam's
firft Sin, is original Sin imputed. The only Remedy for it is in Jesus Christ, i Cor. xv. 22. For "as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be • made alive;' and that from his Blood, which removes it in Justification, Eph. i. 7. ' In whom we
have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.'
