The Power of the Resurrection Christ's resurrection becomes our resurrection



Orthodox do not accept the Doctrine of Original Sin as espoused in the West, but teach, as did the Early Church Fathers, that we inherit only the results of Adams sin, not his guilt. This is known as Ancestral Sin because the sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve, resulted in our having inherited death, sickness and an inclination towards evil. Christ's death on the cross has its power, not as an atonement sacrifice, but in the conquering of the power of death. The perminancy of death has been destroyed by Christ's resurrection from the dead. It is by Christ's resurrection that a way has been made for us to be transformed by contact with the Living God, and thus becoming his children by adoption. Since Christ's resurrection destroyed the power and permanency of death, His resurrection becomes our resurrection.

With love in the Risen Lord Jesus Christ,
Abbot Tryphon
