Religious Glossary - common terms used related to Religion

Original Sin - Original sin is the doctrine, shared in one form or another by most Christian churches, that the sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden (called "the Fall"), changed or damaged human nature, such that all human beings since then are innately predisposed to sin, and are powerless to overcome this predisposition without divine intervention. (wikipedia)

"Fallen man's natural sinfulness, the hereditary depravity and corruption of human nature because of Adam's fall." 1 That is, Adam and Eve's transgression when they ate of the forbidden fruit opened a gulf between God and humanity. Pollution from that sin has been inherited by all of Adam and Eve's descendents to the present day. (religious tolerance)

Term for the sin committed by Adam and Eve when they ate the apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Traditions about this sin vary in Christianity, Judaism and Islam and between different sects within the faiths.
