II Corinthians 5:10 versus “Original Sin”

II Corinthians 5:10 reads, "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad."

Three key words in this verse help us to understand the doctrine of "Original Sin" to be false:

done – we will be judged by things that we do, not by something that we inherit, as the Calvinist says.

his – we will be judged by things that we do, not by something Adam did.

body – we will be judged by things that we do while in our body, not by things done after we are in our body (as the Mormons teach), or things done before we are in our body, as the Calvinist teaches.

Supposed inherited sin would not be something a person did in his body would it? If there were such a thing as inherited sin (which there is not), this verse would prove that we will not be judged by it.

God says a person will be judged by the things done in his body. The Calvinist says we will also be judged by things done by someone else before we even had a body. Who do you believe?
