Christ Ahnsahnghong Restored the Forgiveness of Sins

Have you heard the saying that we are born into sin? (I doubt you haven't since everyone has told us that when we go to church). The reasoning behind it is that because Adam sinned, the sin automatically carries over to everyone in the world. However, did you know that's not what the Bible says? Look at this verse I saw when studying at the Church of God World Mission Society:

Rom. 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

I never realized before that since the wages (payment) for sin is death, why do even young children die? What sin can a newborn baby commit, but it still can die. Women have miscarriages all the time - that baby wasn't even born yet! What kind of sin can it be "born into" if it wasn't born? Studying the Bible more, I now realize that just as our soul (or spirit, same thing) was in heaven before, we must have committed the sin while still in heaven. That's why Jesus came to call sinners (Matt. 9:13). Living in this world, which is a spiritual city of refuge or jail, I didn't know how to return to my spiritual home, the Kingdom of Heaven. I saw that only through the Passover I can have the forgiveness of my sins. Thanks to Father Christ Ahnsahnghong, I am able to keep the Passover, being that He restored it after it being abolished for so long. I thank God, Christ Ahnsahnghong, forever and resolve to not sin again.
