    But isn't it thus a sin not to:

    Love your neighbour...

    Love the sinner...

    Help the helpless...

    I said I didn't believe in original sin...

    I miss the mark, don't do my best on a regular basis...but there ain't nobody that teaches forgiveness gonna toss me in an imaginary abyss for that.

    In a way, doesn't original sin simply mean that all humans have the capacity to miss the mark? In a more secular way of thinking, that when humans started to develop morality (be it from divine guidance or nor) thinking they would inevitably fall short of what they expected from each other. You know, at that fire camp you like!

    It's that kind of thinking that Hart is talking about.

    It is always so that religion itself is personal.

    If you disagree, you do not yet know what religion is.

    Clinging to tradition, that religion is lessened.

    If you know what religion really is, you see no distinctions in anything that exists.

    Just many expressions of the same.

    What is religion?

    The meeting of opposites.
