Yesterday we had a lovely conversation with a friend who is originally from Bulgaria, but now lives in Texas.
She was telling us how she was brought up in Bulgaria, where both the Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches had congregations.
The subject of the conversation was that her family and the people she knew did not believe that mankind arrived in this world as sinners.
Think of that! You and we, when we were born, had not done anything evil. We were completely free, innocent, and kindly human beings. How much evil could we have done in our mother’s womb?
When I (Philip) was a child I went to church every Sunday and was totally sold on the fact that I was loaded with sin!
That’s the end of today’s sermon! We do not have to feel that all our thoughts are EVIL.
