This is one of the tenets of Christianity that really does not sit well with me. It's like a guilt trip just for existing and I really find it shameful, considering I'm optimist about people even when they are morally reprehensible. I don't know, if I actually had an inkling for believing in a deity I'd still not pick Christianity because of that (and some other tenets too).
I'll be blatantly honest with you... Christianity is not for everyone. But let me ask you this, do you believe that children are born "perfect"? Because if so, then that would mean at some point in that child's life, that child would fall from grace, for a lack of better terms. Because I'm sure we'll all agree, no one on this world is perfect. So if a child is not born "perfect" then that child does have sin.

I'm not a universalist (Unitarian) Christian, one that thinks everyone will end up in Heaven. I believe that all of mankind was born in sin (Gen. 3) and was born with a free will. You choose to deny his existance (and in turn rules), while I accept them and try to live by them the best I can. I'm not saying that I'm perfect, because I fall everyday and try to repent as best as possible. But I am saying that you, and I, are sinners, and have been so since the day we were born. As I stated before, the only difference between us, I choose to accept said terms while you do not.
