Original sin

Original sin is a paramount belief in Christianity and many religions of the world. It says that the basic nature of human beings is is morally flawed and full of sin. And that it is only through prayers and God's guidance and grace that we can manage this deficiency.

But what if the opposite were true? What if we are light, love and innocence on the inside and our moral flaws and deficiencies are wrapped around it like layers of an onion? And then after there are enough layers, we cannot access the love and innocence anymore. After a while we might forget what we are and and all we can access are the layers of deficiency. So we just figure we are rotten to the core.

The original sin and deficiency described above seems a lot like the deficiency of our negative self-beliefs that we pick up during childhood. They all have some variation of being deficient: I am unlovable, I am unworthy, I am inadequate or not enough, I am incapable, etc.

So could we be confusing our negative self-beliefs with our essence? The enlightened spiritual teachers that have reconnected with their essence claim that there is nothing but light and love in there. Perhaps original innocence or original purity would be more accurate than original sin.

This deep core belief of original sin makes it really difficult to trust ourselves. Accordingly, we tend to not trust our instincts and intuition. Instead we reroute important decisions through our intellect, because our natural inclinations are not to be trusted. Yet our intellect is not very clear and objective due to it being affected by all those negative self-beliefs.

That is why trusting your heart, gut, and instincts is so courageous. It goes against everything you are taught to believe.

Who would've thought accepting that we are innocent and beautiful inside would be so hard?

Pastor John McMartin finds scripture verse that shows water is in Hell. Luke 16:19-31 And in all this, between us and you a great chasm has been established, so that those wanting to cross hence to you may not be able, nor yet those thence may be ferrying to us. The second "pass" verse 26 is [Gk: .Diaperao = THROUGH-OTHER-SIDE, and is used of passage over WATER] hence, "ferrying over WATER" Water is in HELL. WOW!

If Arabs are indeed anti-American, it is because we Americans let Israel control our foreign policy. We? are ruled by zionist jews. No wonder Muslims hate us.

I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you
know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks
