Ezekiel 18:20 versus The “Original Sin” Doctrine

Ezekiel 18:20 reads 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.

This verse asks and answers the question of the "Do we inherit original sin from Adam?" issue:

Does the son bear the iniquity of the father?

The following is God’s answer to that question:

v.19 When the son hath done that which is lawful & right, … he shall surely live

v.20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die

v.20 son shall not bear the iniquity of the father

v.20 the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him

And so I don’t inherit the sin of my biological father (nor the sin of Adam), and neither did Seth inherit the sin of Adam.

God says "The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father." The Calvinist and almost all denominations say just the opposite.
