It is still relevant to highlight the fact that the original sin in Judaism and Christianity was the seeking of knowledge. (13/01/22 17:34:23)
imvho, the original sin is disobedience.
something that USA preachers love to thump a lot.
i dont know how well you know the old testament and what verison/translation youve been hammered/indoctrinated/thumped with but the disobedience theme is a recurring one throughout the whole "Tanakh".
even in the apocrypha btw.
the main difference between the christian credo and the Jewish one is simple
christianity: embrace jesus and believe in it. he is the only way to redemption.
judaism: do what god told you to do. believing or loving "him" is not strictly required.
since there is no entry in wikipedia in any other language except hebrew, here is the translator link since i am short on time right now.
roughly, "we will do and hear". there is intrinsically absolute acceptance and obedience even without belief or explanation.
all this is also linked to your other post about men...
