"How can infants be born sinners when they cannot choose to act with purpose or intention?"
What if sin has nothing do with choice but has to do with nature? I would encourage Dr. McCarroll to spend some time around infants and toddlers not her own kin and observe their behaviour, which I would contend is the very definition of originally sinful. Selfish and egoistical, unconcerned with consequences, deceitful and prone to rash displays of anger; are these not elements and ideas essentially at odds with the ethos of Christianity? Again, it may not be popular to hear, but infants readily testify to humanity's sinful nature.
The question might be better asked, in what ways do they grow beyond it?
