Ancestral_sin

In Categories: Miscellaneous Topics

The sin of the first-formed was the beginning and root of all grievous events up until today and up until the end of the ages. The one disobedience, as seed in the womb of Eve, was pregnant and imparted death of body and soul to the human race which proceeded from her. And how would the wretched Eve have imagined that the small taste of the fruit would create such a catastrophe and punishment as to compel the Holy Trinity into an "interview," in order to send one person of the life-originating Trinity into the world to suffer from the work of His hands from mens laps, blows, scourging, spitting and every shamelessness and to be hung on the Cross as a curse: "cursed be everyone who hangs on a tree." REF:Elder Ephraim of Philotheou Mount Athos, "Counsels from the Holy Mountain"
