Eight doctrines branch off the ‘Original Sin’ principle
- All Adam’s descendants inherit his sin, which means that all human beings are born with this Original Sin on their account.
- For God’s justice to be achieved, a price must be paid as a penalty for every sin that has been committed, in order for that sin to be wiped out and the individual to be forgiven.
- The only way to wipe out sin is to shed blood, and according to Paul, “without the shedding of blood there is no remission.” (Hebrews 9:22)
- However, this blood must be perfect, sinless, and incorruptible.
- Christians believe that Jesus (peace be upon him) alone could pay the infinite price of sin; this is because they believe that his blood is perfect, sinless, and incorruptible, and he is the alleged son of God, the infinite God.
- Christian theology says that Jesus shed his holy sinless blood, suffered indescribable agony, and died to pay for the sins of people. This concept is known in Christian theology as ‘atonement’.
- Christians believe that nobody can be saved (attain salvation) unless he or she accepts Jesus Christ as his or her redeemer. In other words, salvation is restricted to those who believe that Jesus was willingly crucified, killed on the cross, and shed his blood as a price of that sin. Acceptance of this doctrine is the only way to attain ‘salvation’.
- Otherwise, everyone is condemned to suffer eternally in hell because of his or her sinful nature and originally inherited sin from the father of humankind, Prophet Adam.

- Belief that Jesus has paid the price for the sins of all humankind by sacrificing his blood and ‘dying on the cross’.
- The rationality of ‘God’s sacrifice’ dogma.
- Salvation from sin (original and newly attained) is only possible for those who believe in his vicarious sacrifice.
