Romans 5:12 Inherited Sin and Universalism

It is time to move beyond an insistence on reading Romans 5 as an exposition of original/inherited sin, which leads to unnecessary hermeneutical maneuvering to avoid absolute Universalism. It is time we let Paul say what he intended to say, no more and certainly no less. Sin is a universal problem, it affects both Jew and Gentile. But God, in Jesus Christ, has provided the solution which is available to all.
