Re: Original Sin (What was the first error?)

Thanks for the link Victoria, really good explanation. I still don't know why though it worked out that it was males who became dominant over females and not the other way around. I wonder how different things would have been, maybe not too much just a reverse of roles...

Re: Does Mary and AJ go to church?

Hi Rita I think your response to Pam's question is right, but can community gatherings still promote connection with God. My thoughts would be 'yes' but only if people were sincere. I still attend some church services and volunteer to read, it can at least get people to self reflect, although I know...

Re: Intro

Thank you Nicky and Anneli for your help. The topics icons is actually what I was referring to but didn't have the right words for it. Sometimes they are red and sometimes they are blue and also some have a lock symbol. What do these mean?

Re: Original Sin (What was the first error?)

Sorry I should have added... Since that first mistake males have dominated the fabric of human life, what occurred that resulted in this and not the other way around, ie. how come females are not dominating the fabric of human life?

Original Sin (What was the first error?)

I understand that genesis tells us Eve caused the first sin, but that suits a male dominated view of the world at the time this story was created. However there was conceivably a first mistake of some kind. If genesis is not correct what is the first sin?

The bible holds many truths but is curtailed and disingenuous at the same time. Can peopl...
