Death The Fall, Original Sin About this Life Night This Life Night is the second night of the Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness curriculum, and continues where the first Life Night, “Life” left off — in the Garden of Eden. The night begins with an exciting announcement from the youth minister and a simple rule that ultimately gets broken. This transitions into a teaching about the Fall and original sin. During the Break teenagers will have an opportunity to discuss the effects of original sin and concupiscence within the world today. During the Send, the teenagers will renew their baptismal promises and be reminded that Christ has won the victory over sin and death, and that our hope is Him. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to explain the effects of the Fall of Adam and Eve and the doctrine of original sin. This Life Night will challenge the teens to recognize the effects of original sin on God’s intended plan for the world, and recognize the necessity of Christ in their redemption. Catechism # 386 - 389 # 396 - 409 # 1264 YouCat # 67 - 70 # 200 Scripture Genesis 3:1 -24 Romans 3:23 -26 Romans 5:12 -18 Key Concepts Humanity can only live in friendship with God by free submission to God. This freedom was put to the test in the Garden of Eden with the command not to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s command, abusing their freedom. This first sin caused the loss of original holiness and disrupted original justice. Sin and death entered the world through original sin, and as a consequence they are transmitted to all descendants of Adam. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
