    Milton said that sin is the daughter of Satan who sprang from his brain and is as ugly as Satan himself, looking just like him. Satan, not knowing his own daughter, raped her and she gave birth to death. Sin and death guard the gates of hell.

    Just start with the right premise, understanding that corruption precedes acts of sin, and must because a good tree [a truly good man] cannot bring forth evil fruit . Start with the light of the New Testament shining on this event, and one will avoid a lot of superstitious thought, like the ideas of finite good, and that it was the opening of their eyes that corrupted them.

    The corrupter was the Serpent, John 8:44, "He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him." He murdered Adam and Eve with his lie, Genesis 3:4, "Ye shall not surely die: . . ." Nevertheless, the sinful nature was from Adam and Eve obtaining what was God's knowledge of good and evil, Genesis 3:22, "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: . . ." Do not be ignorant, that it was that knowledge which belongs to our infinitely good God which caused mankind their sinful nature by reason that man was not an infinite good creation.

    A question then.

    You keep saying Adam's good was finite. What does that mean?
