Original sin - is not an irreversible fate

Daily Meditation:  Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Human beings are sinners, conceived in sin and born in sin: this is what the Church has repeated time and again for centuries. But by insisting on this idea and promulgating it to such a degree, the Church is preventing humanity from righting itself, for it lessens their hope and their desire to extricate themselves from the situation. Of course, there is some degree of truth in the fact that humans are conceived in sin, because their parents pass on to them an already defective inheritance. Just look at the conditions they conceive their children in! Is it in light, purity and real love? Rarely. So, children already lack these things and suffer for it. But as for the idea that, ever since Adam and Eve, original sin is inevitably passed on from one generation to the next – no. If humans find the light, if they try to cultivate kindness, honesty, fairness and wisdom, Adam and Eve no longer matter; everything can be changed, transformed. Why inculcate ideas that keep people forever cowed by guilt, with no hope of one day holding their head high? Granted, we are all sinners, but we do not have to remain sinners for eternity: we can progress all the way to perfection.
