sin makes me human? what!

Is sin inherent or intrinsic (part of the fiber of our beings)? I think that if sin it is then we have some issues.

What does this say about Adam and Eve? Were they human before the fall? Sin could not be intrinsic with their existence, because it would then imply that before they sinned they were not human. This is just plain silly!

It also implies that without sin, one would be less than human. So what does that say about Jesus? Was he less than human? Because if sin is inherent to our existence then Jesus, who did not sin, would be less than human. Which would lead to problems in our theological understanding of Christ. We don't see Jesus as less than human, he is all that is human. If he is all that is human and is without sin, perhaps to fully human is to be without sin.

Maybe sin makes us less human. That while we are in our sin, we are actually less than what our Creator intended us to be.

This is an interesting conversation. What do you think?

I agree with ya. Sin wasn't apart of Eden and it was something that we introduced into the garden. If you think about it, sin destroys relationships with others, ourselves, and ultimately with God. Sinning tears apart the very fiber of human nature.

As an addition...

God created us to be relational creatures which can be seen in the creation of Eve (every animal had others but Adam was alone) and the walks that He took with the pair through the garden.
