A treatise of original sin ... proving that it is, by pregnant texts of Scripture vindicated from false glosses
Burgess, Anthony, d. 1664.


IN the next place, We have the Effect of this disobedience, with the Extent of it. The Extent is to many, that is, to all born naturally of Adam; For ma∣ny is not here opposed to all, but to one, the original, from that one, many, even all are made sinners. Therefore it's a dangerous Exposition of Theodoret, as Six∣tus Senensis relateth, which affirmeth, Not all, but some only to be infected with Adam's sinne, exempting Abel, Noah, and others from this pollution; For (1 Cor. 15.) the Apostle saith, In Adam all die; and in this Chapter at vers. 12. All have sinned in Adam; But the Effect, that is more dreadfull, and worthy of all meditation, We are made〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉. This is more then when all were said to sin in him, for this doth denote the habitual depravation of all the parts of the soul, as also a readiness to commit all actual sins. Therefore the word is sometimes applied to signifie great and hainous sinners, as Mary Magdalen is said to be (〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉) a sinner. So then you see, that by Adams disobedience all are made sinners.
