Thanks for your answer but it still does not answer my fundamental question.

it is inherited. And, all descendants of Adam have his guilt imputed to them;

The word "impute" (credited) is my problem!

Now, if we Reformed use the word "impute" (credited in the eyes of God with the righteousness of His own son) to slay the RCC dragon of infused righteousness, how may we by using the same concept and word, give life to a dragon of infused depravity or a "sinful nature"?

As I said, this fundamental question "imputed guilt" is no small theological matter.

Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." [John 6:68]
