Toward the end of Kamal Zakher’s article, was the following passage in defense of Max Michel in Dr. George Habib words: “Max Michel was a student in the Theological College. He studied under me for one year, in which he wrote a research on the original sin; he returned to the ancient resources and the teachings of the fathers, proving that the original sin is the inheritance of death, and not of Adam’s fault…” Herewith we shall give our response to the mindset of Max Michel who was defended and supported by Dr. George Habib Bebawy as we have mentioned, and monk Basil of St. Macarius published the article for Dr. Bebawy in The Sunday School Magazine issue 8 of year 2002, page 11, under the title The Original Sin including their attack on this issue.
I do think that the phrase original sin is recognizable enough that Fr. Athanasius did not feel the need to define the terms of the doctrine. From the Catholic Encyclopedia,"Original sin may be taken to mean: (1) the sin that Adam committed; (2) a consequence of this first sin, the hereditary stain with which we are born on account of our origin or descent from Adam" accessed here; http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11312a.htm
