    A very interesting article. I would like a little more exegesis in Romans 5. The text says that by one man death reigned, seeming to say that Adam is the cause of his posterity's. Your system, while sound in many ways, does not appear to answer this. Other than that it is very well written and well argued. Nice job.

    Rom 5:13-14, (NASB)
    13 for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
    14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.

    This passages is basically stating that some of God's elect did not transgress a law covenant. A covenant of works given to Adam was "Do this and die." Then there is a law covenant at Sinai with Moses. These covenants are for the revealing of sin or the increasing of transgressions. Adam transgressed a law covenant in the Garden. And death reigned from Adam to Moses - even for those who weren't under a law covenant. All of the elect sin in the same manner as Adam - even without a law covenant.

    This explanation has been added to the article.
