Fixing up Romans 5:12 YEC version

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered

Now this so-called fundamental comes from a much disputed passage. Debate about the only possible way its final clause can be understood has raged for centuries, well before our community inherited some views and took sides. Why don’t people just find other places where the Bible says what they want it to say, instead of quarrelling about Romans 5:12? 

Another Christadelphian version says

Wherefore, as by one man* sin entered into the world, and mortality by sin; and so mortality passed upon all men, (*Adam, in whom all sinned)

and another Christadelphian:

Wherefore, as by one man, Adam, sin entered into the world, and the Adamic condemnation by sin; and so Adamic condemnation passed upon all men, in which all are sin

Or, following the transcript of brother John Carter’s 1956 Swanwick Study #2:

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and mortality by sin; and so mortality passed upon all men, for that all have sinned, because Adam sinned

Really?

    Why does it seem to be a problem that by the first people entered sin?
    When they would not have followed their own greed, wanting to have the same possibilities and having the same power as God, they would not have been the first … but perhaps later on others would have doubted the position of God and as such would have sinned.

    Man in his weakness mostly goes wrong and as such does sin, becoming an adversary of God (a satan). God told man he would be under the curse of death if he goes wrong.
    Still each individual can try to be without sin. When a person would not ever sin he would not fall under the curse because he would not be condemned, but the curse shall still exist, no matter him not sinning and he being able to enter the Kingdom of God, being judged to be all right. Others, namely the sinning ones who do not repent shall have to face death for ever.
