I am so glad to read the WSC whenever I can. It is hard to confess Adam's reality in today's world.

I've had quite a few thoughts weaving around my head lately about sin, depravity, our need for Christ. . . I guess the Lord is working in my heart again in these areas. There are some thoughts I'd like to share--composed as I'm driving, but never quite making them to my blog.

You actually believe that you sinned with Adam?

You are punished for Adam's sin?
