for forthcoming uk programmes of jewish or israeli interest

Original sin

yesterday afternoon (monday 23rd), 4.30-5.00pm, on bbc radio 4
original sin (in the beyond belief series) (presented by ernie rea)

“For more than 1,500 years the Catholic Church has maintained that the sin of Adam in the Garden of Eden was passed on to every subsequent human being. This meant that every baby was born bad, with its inherent human nature corrupted and attracted to sin. This was not a marginal teaching; it has underpinned Christianity.”
(0:19:57) “The Jews have a wonderful phrase: they say on the Day of Judgment, you will be judged and condemned for every legitimate pleasure you could have had and did not engage in … I find that not such a powerful affirmation of God’s wonderful creation as the Jewish view”
