Original Sin 27 – Ancestral Sin

Ancestral sin is the term the Orthodox sometimes use to describe the biblical account of Adam. But there is no single term or description in the Eastern Church like we find in the West. No single idea came to dominate the East the way that Augustine’s idea of original sin as inherited guilt came to […]

Original Sin 24 – Romans 5:12

Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” John 3:5 refers to Christian baptism.

Celiac Disease Background and Treatment

I don’t really have any particular comment to make on this. It’s from the Mayo Clinic and is an excellent short video about celiac. It’s the best I’ve seen at explaining the disease in five minutes.

Celiac and the Cost of Cheating

I thought I would pause in my series on the Didache to reflect on this video by Dr. Vikki Petersen that I think relates to what I tried to express yesterday. In it she is answering a question from a woman who suffered severe weight loss as a result of celiac. (From what I’ve read, […]
