My issue, as probably been repeated on here before, is with the idea of how unfair original sin seems.
I’m perfectly fine with the whole idea until we get to the fact that we inherit both spiritual and somehow physical damage when we had absolutely no say in what Adam and Eve did.
Although my objection would be how rude it seems of God, my quarrel with it this time is this:
The idea seems highly Illogical in the context that it’s very primitive. The idea of “family honor” to me has always come across as a pre-enlightenment, old fashion, unfair idea.
Nowadays, we are typically smarter than to judge people by the actions of others when we have our own individual undependability.
So basically my question is; despite our moving away from the idea of inherited consequence, why the heck would the Church still hold on to it in this particular context?
Note: I am Catholic, but i think a lot like how atheists tend to, so respond to me as if your were responding to a skeptic of the faith.
