No, this isn’t about the atom bomb we dropped on Hiroshima. This one’s exponentially more fatal. This Adam bomb (of sin) entered the world through Adam. But what they Adam (and Eve) aren’t responsible for is for taking the blame for each of us individually sinning by passing a tendency towards sin onto their offspring and eventually down to us (the sins of the father are not passed onto their sons and vice versa). We are born into this world with a clean slate (represented by the white fleeing left figures). But because we live in an unclean world, we get a lot of that filthiness on and in us (second set of fleeing right figures, partially sin infected).

If we were to have inherited Adam’s original sin, then we couldn’t have been able to be held accountable for our sins because our free will (in the image of God) would have been infringed upon. And any infringement would be causing us to not act as a free moral agent.

Nothing we can do (works) will wash sin from us but the blood of Jesus. It’s our adult (age of accountability) decision whether or not to accept Christ as our savior. Our “good works” just reinforce the gratitude we have for becoming Christians. We (everybody) were designed from the beginning (by God our Maker) to do good works.

You no doubt have notice a distraught (Picasso–influenced African mask) human interpretation of the bomb’s tail end section (with an accompanying side-view of an American eagle). This is all topped off with an “In Us We Trust” instead of “In God We Trust,” emphasizing doing it the American way (your way), which is often in opposition to God’s way. “Say it ain’t so, Joe.”
