What is sin? v.2

Previously we reviewed my definition for sin, commandments 1-3, and their involvement in every aspect of created existence, that is mind, body, and heart (emotions). Today we continue with commandments 4-6. Commandment 4 -┬áHonour your mother and father. Let me begin by saying that this does not mean listen to whatever your parents tell you... Continue Reading →

“What is sin?” v. 1

At an event recently, a conversation led to the realization that there are many different interpretations of what sin is. Everyone seems to agree that it is "missing the mark" or "going against the will of God" but how people interpret both of those things seems rather wide-ranging. For instance, a Romanian Orthodox Priest challenged... Continue Reading →

MBTI Christianity – E vs I

My Research v.3

Once the worldview of Nonreductive Physicalism has been established, and once the premise that fear is the root of all sin has been presented, the next step is a thorough investigation into the nature of fear itself. For instance, fear is a basic emotion. There are no emotions motivating or further beneath fear, it is... Continue Reading →
