Innocent at Birth

We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.
Simply put the second Article of Faith  means we are responsible for our own selves. I am not held responsible for Adam's transgression and neither are you. We are not born as sinners. You cannot sin if you do not know or understand what sin is and babies deffinately do not understand or know what sin is. Here are a few other scriptures which state we are not responsible for the sins of others.

Deut. 24:16, "The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin."
Ezek. 18: 20, "The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him."
