  • Los Alamos Middle School seventh grade student Claire DeCroix, 12, created the logo for this year’s New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge.

  • What do we believe about original sin? — E.F.

    The meaning of the word “sin,” like many words, has changed with the trends of society.
    “Sin” has become synonymous with judgement, shame, abuse, and hate. In the Orthodox Christian Church sin is about relationship; it is the failure to love according to God’s definition.
    Orthodox use the term “Ancestral Sin” rather than “Original Sin.” Primarily, God is a loving God.
    Orthodox reject the teaching that individuals inherit the guilt of Adam and Eve’s sin.
    The primary inheritance that humanity receives from Adam and Eve is death.
