Is Original Sin the Original Message?

Are human beings born sinful and inherently flawed?

This is a question that many have asked over time and this morning Joel explored the concept known in the church as Original Sin and questioned whether it's really the original good news of Christianity or a corruption that's developed over time.

"Take the world and re-define it, leave behind your shallow mind, you'll never be the same!"

In a world that invites us to find ourselves, prove ourselves and pursue happiness, this song proudly declares "I am already enough, everything I need is within me."

Do you recycle?

We've been told over the past couple of generations that to help save the planet, it is our responsibility as good citizens to make an effort to recycle as much as we can.

Where did this concept and message come from?

Jenny explains the fascinating origins of this narrative...

"What if the guilt we have been assigned is just a re-framed problem that was never our problem to start with?"

This song by Jason Mraz celebrates the power of the moment and how life is found, not in focussing on the past but instead, by embracing the present.

"I will not waste my days making up all kinds of ways to worry about all the things that will not happen to me."

In the Genesis story of Adam and Eve, the forbidden fruit is eaten and for many Christians this has been the starting point of the story of humanity. Joel takes us on a journey of discovery to see that our origin story starts earlier in the previous chapters with blessing, purpose, potential, life, light, goodness, creation, relationship, connection, well-being and productivity.
