Your perspective is interesting.
My own view can be prologued by Jesus' parable of the prodigal son:
And He said, “A man had two sons. “The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.’ So he
divided his wealth between them. “And not many days later, the younger son gathered everything together and went on a journey into a distant
country, and there he squandered his estate with loose living. “Now when he had spent everything, a severe famine occurred in that country, and he
began to be impoverished. (Luke 15:11-13)
‘I will get up and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be
called your son; make me as one of your hired men.”’ “So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw
him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. “And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in
your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on
him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was
dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.’
Look in the mirror: what do you see?
We are the Fallen. Original sin was not being born of Adam: it happened long ago when were seduced by Satan into warring against God in the first
"So Yahweh caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept" (Genesis 2:21) Have we forgotten who and what we really are? Are we not able
to recognize our own divinity; that we are stars, due to the sad oblivion cast upon us by our captor, Morpheus?
We are the prodigal son and it is through the intercession of Jesus, the Emissary, by the mercy and compassion of the Heavenly Father, that we are
forgiven; made able to return to our former state of being equal to the angels once again in the Kingdom of God.
