Original Sin

The phrase “ORIGINAL SIN” does not appear in the scriptures. It is a later theology of the church as it struggled with the knodledge that we humans are remarkably prone to do things that we know very well are just wrong.
The theology of  “Original Sin” is that some how the first sin of Adam and Eve is genetically passed on through birth. Personally I don’t buy that idea. WE all have to commit our own sin which we manage to do a lot! To top that off we are capable of self deception and justification about our actions when we do. When my neighbor sins it is a horrible thing but when I do the same thing I had a good reason and am there for justified.
It is only when we are able to admit our sin and seek forgiveness that we are able to receive it. Christmas is a time for us to remember the greates gift ever given - God’s Grace in forgiveness.


  1. I feel the same way.

  2. Ephesians 1:7
    In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
