Healing the Sin-Sickness of our Souls Through the Virtues
Have you ever gotten to the end of a hard day and wondered to yourself, “Why do I keep falling into the same old sins?” This course not only answers that question (hint, it started with Adam and Eve), but gives strategies for breaking the cycle. We’ll start by looking at how our worldviews shape how we answer this question. Then, we’ll examine the passions (our deep-rooted sinful inclinations) and their opposite virtues. Last, we’ll look at just how we strengthen the virtues and heal our souls.
