Right after our Catholic Life in the Spirit Seminar, I immediately approached Fr. Jon to ask this question.
“Is it a sin to have passion in learning? Because in Eve’s story, they acquired the original sin from eating the fruit that came from the tree of knowledge.”
He answered “Well, who knows?”
And that’s it. I still think there’s a huge hole in that idea. He (Fr. Jon) pointed out later on that He wanted to have His children back that’s why He sent prophets. Well, that sounds a little too human, right? Like a human father, that’s what fathers usually do. Well, that’s a different entirely.
