Have you outgrown your original sin nature?


I have been working quite hard at looking at sin. One thing that stands out clear is that elder people generally do not sin. They may be jerks but they don't do others harm. I reflect on my own life run riot for 40 years and more. But I have not harmed my God or others for quite some time. (yes children worry about me but not because I harmed) I am beginning to think that we graduate out of sin. Or we are bad to the bone and stay there. Would you share your thoughts on this please. We all can do better.

    It is not a favorite area for me as folks seem invested in being sinful. Just my friends here announce it. But they do not show it. They simply are not but have to be by custom. So perhaps I have lost some friends. This is growth. Thank you friend.

    This is great stuff. Thank you Catherine. I get confused when you jump back and forth between the Bible and calling us out for being pagan worshipers. Is the Bible Pagan at it's base or just the Catholic church?

    This is just wonderful Paul, thank you. You put it into a very clear cycle of life. The turning around which is repentance is a critical factor in growing better not older.

    Oh what a marvelous well written and thought out response. Chit chat and one step at that. We just kind of move along a progression like our Palm Sunday march. Yet I was sinless last Christmas, sinful yesterday and pure today. Not linear at all.

    Really a great comment. This is my third question along these lines and I just published my second sermon along these lines. I really am trying to find a 50 yr. plus who sins. Maybe adultery will come up. But not yet.

    My boy and I am scheming a deal for Mom's birthday. And I sit back and play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7SvofIl--g

    I am so much in love that I do not get it. I fail at sin, I thrive on love. We dance with sin, I just cannot get these things.

    Very interesting and well thought out. So we need God like discernment to avoid sinning?

    Not buying it Elijah. There are basically 30+ definitions of sin. Like the 20+ of Love. And original is not a linear concept it is inception of soul based.We do no inherit - we carry forward by your logic. You are missing the mark on this answer.

    Tom it will take 4 generations to overturn the notion of Original Sin. Folk are just invested in the "If I sin I can confess them and be saved". It is hard for people to grasp that they are not sinning. They good, and loved.

    John I am working on yet a third sermon on sin. My boy 7 just wanted clarification of when you have to lie like an undercover cop or spy. Maybe there are no answers - which perhaps is answer of itself.

    How interesting. I think your premise is wrong. Criticism? Maybe. You ask if I am seeking "an" answer. I am interested in all the answers and generally critical when one suggests it is "the" answer. Yes, this is an inquiry not a search for a winner.

    A marvelous statement of your faith based on proof. I really see where you are coming from on the Torah. It just smacks of priests putting it together to create sins in order to create need for priestly confession and forgiveness.

    Sin, missing the mark. That answer is because karma or reaping what's sown is the law of existence along with our purpose being to experience every perceivable experience in existence, thus, judgmental adjectives prevent our comprehending that.
