    Original Sin? Need Explanation

    hi all:) talking of animals, i was just wondering actually if maybe that is the point. it's the tree of KNOWLEDGE of good and evil. maybe original man was intended to live like animals on his instinct, natural, simple. maybe it's not so much a question of sin as awareness of sin. we just had...

    Sin in changing the religion or keeping 2 of them
