First, I would like to describe a little bit of my background. I'm not Jewish, and I'm not a Christian. Currently, I'm in a debate with some Christian members in a Christian forum with our mother language about Original Sin (OS), where I said that OS is not logical, or, if they say it's logical, then (I say) it's coming from a weak background.
I found in Google inormation about Yetzer ha-Ra', and my conclusion is that it is "a desire to do bad things". (I hope my conclusion about Yetzer ha-Ra' is correct).
I would like to know if there is a similarity in Judaism with the Christian doctrine of Original Sin. From the forum, what I found based from answers is something like this:
Before Adam eats the fruit, Adam doesn't have the inclination to do bad things or to break the Law.
After Adam eats the fruit, Adam now has that inclination to do bad things. The evidence is:
a. Adam now knows that he is naked
b. Adam hides after he hears God is coming
c. Instead of admitting his wrong act, he throws the fault to Eve.
- Adam's future babies will be born sinners. The evidence:
It is known that there is an event where a toddler hits his younger brother - although that toddler has already been told "Don't hit anyone.'
It is because of those 3 points above that I say that OS "has a weak background" - and I haven't touched on the reference to it in the writings of Paul yet.
A sentence from here say :
One of the medieval commentators explains that previous to the first sin, the Yetzer ha-Ra' (= the snake) was external to the person. After the first sin, the Yetzer ha-Ra' was internalized.
Assuming the quote above is correct in the point of view of Judaism, my question is :
How is the situation of Adam between before and after Yetzer ha-Ra' became internal in him?
After Adam eats the fruit,
a. is the Yetzer ha-Ra' like a "virus" by which all Adam's future babies will be "infected" once they are born (where the evidence of the "infection" is their first wrong act) ? or
b. Adam's future generation must do wrong first, and then it gets "infected" by it?
I realize that maybe I will need to edit some of my questions if the quote above is not correct from the point of view of Judaism.
PS: Because I'm not from an English-speaking country, I'm sorry if my English is difficult to be understood.
