He, with all his posterity, became corrupt and sinful, and fell under the condemnation of the law of God.

He was not.

Published in 1646

The Text used: There has been some updating of Old English words but otherwise no changes have been made to the original texts.

CONFESSION OF FAITH of seven congregations or churches of Christ in London. which are commonly, but unjustly, called Anabaptists; published for the vindication of the truth and information of the ignorant; likewise for the taking off those aspersions which are frequently, both in pulpit and print, unjustly cast upon them. Printed in London, Anno 1646.

IV IN the beginning God made all things very good; created man after His own Image, filled with all meet perfection of nature, and free from all sin; but long he abode not in this honor; Satan using the subtlety of the serpent to seduce first Eve, then by her seducing Adam; who without any compulsion, in eating the forbidden fruit, transgressed the command of God, and fell, whereby death came upon all his posterity; who now are conceived in sin, and by nature the children of wrath, the servants of sin, the subjects of death, and other miseries in this world, and for ever, unless the Lord Jesus Christ set them free.

Gen.1:1; Col.1:16; lsa.45:12; 1 Cor.15:45,46; Eccles.7:29; Gen.3:1,4,5; 2 Cor.11:3; 1 Tim.2:14; Ga1.3:22; Rom.5:12,18,19,6:22; Eph.2:3.

The First London Baptist Confession of 1644/1646

By One Man’s Offense, Death Came into the World

There never was a greater mistake made than attributing death and the downfall of the human race to the woman. She was not the responsible head of the race. The Bible five times over in one chapter, with every positive form of emphasis, shows that the offense that brought condemnation on the earth was not the offense of woman, that it was the offense of the man. By one man’s offense death came into the world. By the trespass of the one man, by the one trespass of the one man.
