Surprisingly, I had a coptic priest over at my house the other day, and we began talking about babies. Eventually we got to the idea of sin, and he said that the coptic orthodox belief is that we believe we inherited the sin of adam, and the baptism washes us from that original sin. All my life I was taught otherwise though.. What is the real coptic belief??? I believed that we were born with the Nature of Sin, that does not even begin until the infant has reached a certain age in which he can be judged for his/her sins. But how can I be born with the Sin of my father Adam? How can another mans sin be counted as my own? Where is the Justice in that?
