Tragic flaws uprooted

In this series we have looked at the “root” of sin.  The Greek word translated as “sin” is hamartia and has a rich history in the literary community.  The poets used the hamartia or “tragic flaw” to illicit an emotional response.  It is when the great hero like Oedipus kills his father and doesn’t know…
