So about original sin, this was an add on also?
I think it was, In Islam Jesus, Peace be upon him, was not responsible for the sins of all of mankind. he was rather a saviour in the sense that at that time if anyone followed him, then they would be saved. Likewise are told we are responsible for our own actions as well.
And I found this about it.
Is Jesus responsible for our sins?
Humans are born without (original sin of man) according to the Bible:
(Deuteronomy 24:16): "The father 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."
(Jeremiah 31:30), "But every one shall die for own iniquity..."
(Ezekiel 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."
So Adam and Eve were responsible for their own sins.
Even in the New Testament:
(Matthew 19:14): "But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
(I Corinthians 3:8)"Now he that planteth and he that waterth are one; and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour"
(Matthew 7:1,2)"Judge not, that ye be not Judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again"
Now this is both in the Quran and in the bible. This is but one commonality, yet in christianity you will find the theology different than the actual words stated. Again it leads one to believe that original sin is an add on and not talked about in the first years after Christ left us.
