Between the Baptists, Catholics, and SDAs, we have talked a lot about sin and salvation in several threads. I would like to get a perspective of each of the faiths, when sin entered the world, did it just affect mankind, or is the sin that entered the world the reason animials die, flowers wither, plants die, anything we build breaks, like automobiles and household systems. Did sin cause everything on this earth to start winding down? Unattened fruit rots, meat spoils, etc If this is true, before the fall, we could have had the perfect car with on oil changes. Seriously I would be interested in hearing your views on the scope of sin outside of the death of man.
