I never said anything about original sin, that's a false teaching. And the answer is, Jesus of Nazareth is the only begotten Son of God.
Not even Adam was begotten.
Everyone and to help NTT, the question to ask, by whose authority do you reject Original Sin?
Original Sin is true. You reject the God given authority of the Church who canonized the Bible and instead go with Martin Luther's heresy of the
Bible is now your authority (Sola Scriptura). There are verses in Scripture to confirm Original Sin.
Water Baptism removes Original Sin. You are "born again" as Jesus states in John 3. Baptism is so very very important, you receive God's presence
in your soul for the first time at Baptism. The Church recognizes non-Catholic Christian baptism if done with water and prayed in the name God the
Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Here are verses on Original Sin.

ROMANS 5:12-21 (NIV) -- Therefore, just as SIN entered the world THROUGH ONE MAN [Adam], and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men,
BECAUSE ALL SINNED [Latin Vulgate reads -in quo omnes peccaverunt-] (verse 12) [translated: "IN WHOM all have sinned"] ...Consequently, just as the
result of ONE TRESPASS was condemnation for ALL MEN, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.
For just as through the disobedience of the ONE MAN [Adam] the many [all] were MADE SINNERS, so also through the obedience of the one man [Christ] the
many [all] will be made righteous. (verses 18-19)
(2) 1 Corinthians 15:21 -- in Adam all die
1 CORINTHIANS 15:21-22 (NIV) -- For since death came through A MAN [Adam], the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man [Christ]. For as IN
ADAM ALL DIE, so in Christ all will be made alive.
(3) Eph 2:1-3 -- dead in sin...by nature children of wrath
EPHESIANS 2:1-3 (NIV) -- As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world
and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time,
gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.
(4) Genesis chapters 2-3; 6:5; 8:21 -- Fall of Mankind
(5) Psalms 51; 58 -- conceived in sin...astray from womb
PSALMS 51 and 58 -- Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. (51:5 NIV); Behold I was brought forth in iniquity, and
in sin did my mother conceive me. (51:5 RSV); Even from birth the wicked go astray; from the womb they are wayward and speak lies. (58:3 NIV); The
wicked go astray from the womb, they err from their birth, speaking lies. (58:3 RSV)
