“Noble I made thee, wherewith dost thou abase thyself?”-Baha’u’llah, The Hidden Words.
Many, the world over, believe in Original Sin, the notion that we were born with the sin of Adam and Eve wrapped around our necks , like an albatross of legend. I could get into that whole After the Fall thing, but I have much else to do today.
What I believe is this: Christ took care of people’s guilt over the Fall from Grace, by sacrificing His earthly life. His point was, and is, we are absolved. We have always been absolved. A poster from the ’70’s says “I know I’m somebody, ’cause God didn’t make no junk.”
We are noble. We are made in the image and likeness of the Creator-in terms of attributes, in terms of spiritual qualities.
