"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Original vs. Ancestral Sin

There is a very interesting post over at Razilazenje on one of the questions that has frequently divided East and West--"ancestral" vs. "orginal" sin (don't worry, the article is in English). In light of some recent comments on this blog, I thought I would pass it along and see what you thought about it (esp. Ian and CA). How might this illumine the discussion in recent comments here on the Immaculate Conception?

NOTE: Actually, it looks like the linked post is malfunctioning. One needs to scroll all the way down to the end of the side bar in order to find the post on "Ancestral vs. Original Sin." It is well worth doing, however.
