Ralph Venning, 1650:

XI Concerning Sin

81. He knows that he was not when Adam was; and yet he believes that he sinned when Adam did.
82. He believes that sin had no being; and yet he believes that God knows it.
83. He knows not, nor can hardly perceive how he becomes a sinner by generation, and yet believes and confesses that he was born in sin.
