    It’s pretty amazing, when you begin to consider just how twisted our race is , how ‘settled’, even navigable the human world is much of the time (which brings us right back to God continually bestowing His abundant mercy on us all), but when our real natures are unrestrained, it’s a very different story. Our personal ‘civility’ is often no more than a guise for depravity, and anyone who has truly encountered themselves ‘in the mirror’ know the piercing truth of Jesus’ assessment of what we are.

    Original Sin?

    Thanks Howard, our culture and manners mask a deeper reality!

    Hi Phil, well call it “original sin” or call it “our human condition” we all share a broken human nature which can’t just be educated away. When I do (or say or think) something awful I can’t just say “that wasn’t really me.” It’s not All of me, but it is a deep part of me and I need to admit that there’s something wrong, deep down.

    What do you think?
