Original Sin

Adam and Eve sin

Original sin is the Christian doctrine that humans inherit a tainted nature and a proclivity to sin through the fact of birth. Theologians have characterized this condition in many ways, seeing it as ranging from something as insignificant as a slight deficiency, or a tendency toward sin yet without collective guilt, referred to as a “sin nature”, to total depravity or automatic guilt of all humans through collective guilt.

Most Quakers (also known as the Religious Society of Friends), including the founder of Quakerism, George Fox, believe in the doctrine of Inward light, a doctrine which states that there is “that of God in everyone”. This has led to a common belief among many liberal and universalist Quakers affiliated with the Friends General Conference and Britain Yearly Meeting, based on the ideas of Quaker Rufus Jones among others, that rather than being burdened by original sin, human beings are inherently good, and the doctrine of universal reconciliation, that is, that all people will eventually be saved and reconciled with God.

At EMMI we do not believe in sin that offend God, but human bad behaviour that offend other human, so you must confess to the one you offended.

Eric Michel Translation of Mat 6:12:
Give us this day our daily bread (food); forgive us our trespasses that we did toward our neighbour, as we also forgive those from our neighbour who trespass against us; do not lead us into temptation of doing wrong, but deliver us from the evil though. For to you belong the kingdom, the power and the glory for all ages. Amen!
