original sin
Question from Joan Hondowicz on 2/19/2014:

according to a book reading for church adult education, since the story of Adam and Eve is of a myth type of literature, used for teaching and not 'true', where does original sin come from (and why would baptism be needed)

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 3/16/2014:

Dear JOAN,

Get another book. Get an orthodox one. Or look up web sites that are faithful to the magisterium of the Church. EWTN has plenty of them. Be aware that adult education is often not what it should be because of the confusion among priest, nouns, and teachers today. Does anyone out there have an specific books in mind?

Dr. Geraghty
