The original sin inheritance concept of Christianity does require some faith from Christian themselves in order to swallow what would seem to be an unfair inheritance dictated by their holy God. Other people outside Christianity do point out the unfairness in such a concept of being born as a little baby while holding the original sin of Adam and Eve.
My post here isn’t meant to either defend this concept from a Christianity point of view as I am not a religious person, or to bash the unfairness of such a concept from another point of view.
What I am seeking here is merely to state my observation of nature and how much inheritance affects our lives more than we realize.
It is just how nature works. Regradless of the truth about inheritance sins, we do inherit a pool of genes that recent studies proved the relation of such genes with various human behaviours. A person is more likely to have diabetes because his parents are suffering from it. Is this fair? Perhaps not, but this is how nature works.
A person born to a poor family would most likely suffer in his life from the shortage of money more than a person born to a rich family. In general this what happens. Sure some special cases occurs when some rich families lose their money, or a poor person winning lottery or working hard to achieve a better living. But it has been dictated since his birth a set of inherited social structure that he had to deal with. Is this fair? Perhaps not, but this what happens.
People grow up learning their values and moral structure mainly from their parents or the people who were responsible of teaching them in their childhood. Someone born in Jordan is more likely to get an Islamic teaching and grow up with Islamic values rathen than someone living in Italy where it is more likely for him to get Christian teachings and values. Is this fair? Perhaps not, but this is life.
Is the inheritance of sins less fair than the inheritance of genes, social structure, or a person’s set of morals? I personally don’t think so, because each in a way dictates a person’s life on earth, and his eternal life for those who believe in it.
