The guilty are "justified" and "saved from wrath" by the blood of an innocent victim.
(5:9) "Justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath."
(5:10) "If ... we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son", then God is truly a monster.
(5:12) "By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so
death passed upon all men."
God punishes everyone for someone else's sin;
then he saves them by killing an innocent victim.
"By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin."
Death didn't enter the world a few thousand years ago because of Adam's sin. Death has been a part
of life since life first arose (on this planet, at least) a few billion years ago.
Who was to blame for original sin?
Must everyone die?
(5:14) "Death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned."
Has everyone sinned?
(5:18-20) God punishes everyone for someone else's sin; then he saves them by killing an innocent victim.
(5:18) "By the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation."
(5:19) "By one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the
obedience of one shall many be made righteous."
It's difficult to imagine a more unjust system.
(5:20) "The law entered, that the offence might abound."
