On this installment of Vestiges of Christianity, Bishop Bryan Ouellette engages the esoteric side of the nature of sin. Continuing his thoughts from last week, he will discuss how we can best avoid falling into the trap of sin. If things like self-defense, even to protect a greater good, remain as sinful actions, how can one protect oneself against the dangers inherent in always "turning the other cheek?" And what of culpability? How can we be guilty of sin and yet exempt from its consequences under certain conditions? Find out on this edition of Vestiges of Christianity.

This week on Vestiges of Christianity, Bishop Bryan Ouellette introduces the topic of "institutional sin." It is the sin that results from necessity by the lack of virtue existent within the fallen world. The example of killing in war and self-defense is utilized as the initial point through which this difficult subject is mastered and thus understood.

Correction from Bishop Bryan: I had the Himalayan mountains on my mind, as I had just finished reading a story about some Buddhist monks. In my absentmindedness, I accidentally said I was coming to you live from the Himalayan mountains when I should have said Appalachian. My apologies for any confusion, but no, I have not yet set out to the life of a Buddhist hermit. ;-)
