I am reading a modern Arthurian novel that focuses on the life of Morgan La Fey, and it is inspiring. Fictitiously, she talks about how the priests of the world hold reality into existence, but how Avalon is just right there if we only know how to access it. I don't think the magic has gone out of this world yet. In fact, I think it is just beginning to awaken in some of us, and I have a tremendous hope for the future: all that is dead shall rise, all that is putrid shall be incinerated and all that is living shall be magnified towards unlimited radiance.
I think guilt can be a good thing, it keeps people from killing, raping, stealing, molesting small children, murdering for fun, etc. It let's people know that certain things are just plain morally wrong (all religion or religious values aside).
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. ~ 1 Corinthians 2:14
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:3
“For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe” ~ 1 Corinthians 1:21
The whole concept of sin through religion should provoke one to question the validity of such a claim from such an demiurge or supreme god.
If sin is considered a debt then isn't it morally wrong to create a debt that cannot be paid?
If sin is guilt, why should someone feel guilty the rest of their life?
Its only human to live and learn, to make mistakes and survive, its a byproduct of ignorance that we all have to deal with. You are forgiven if you forgive yourself. If you want to make things right, make them right with your friends, family, and neighbors.
When one thinks about sin, it does not make sense on any level. People have thoughts and act on those thoughts, that is it.
Really. It's my question to you? Why do you know it when you read it?
