    Loving you isn’t right...It’s original sin “Original sin”: is the Puritan belief that all sin developed from women due to the fact that Eve, the first woman, made the first sin by giving into temptation and offering it to men. The Puritan men have always believed that men should be held accountable for the actions of women and have power over the women. So when Adam didn’t stop Eve from taking the apple, the Puritans saw him as weak and frail for not having control over her actions. Adam was mesmerized by Eve and had trust in her, so when Eve gave into temptation by biting into the apple, Adam followed because he loved her and believed in her actions and ways.This is why the Puritans made the belief that all children created are a sinner and should take responsibility for the act of Adam and Eve. In the…

    The dominant puritan concept of original sin was, apparently, a harsh philosophy that proposed the proper way of rearing of children. In the puritan concept, parents were expected to thoroughly cleanse the child. The idea of helping the child to be cleansed of the original sin was dominant in this concept. The puritan concept did not stress the importance of giving children an education. All infants were sired in a sinful state and were under the original curse and spiritually dead. Unless…

    Via Salutis Outline: In the Via Salutis the saving work of Christ is shown with justification and sanctification through several sermons of John Wesley. In the sermon Original Sin, our sinful nature is depicted, “Now God saw that all this, the whole thereof, was evil; -- contrary to moral rectitude; contrary to the nature of God, which necessarily includes all good…”. God saw us for who we truly were but still allowed His relationship with us to move passed legal justification, which we truly…

    The original argument for infant baptism, and perhaps the one with the most backing is that of original sin. It came about with Augustine, whose whole basis for the practice is built from original sin (Sullivan 3). He stressed that all people are born into the world inheriting the sin of Adam (3). To be baptized is to be cleanse of the original sin that comes with life on earth (3). “Original sin is way of saying we’re born into that web of society that is marked by sin… baptism removes original…

    He says “the devil would not have ensnared man in open sin of disobedience if man had not already begun to please himself in pride” (Augustine, 98) Adam and Eve didn’t choose the true object that they desired, God, but choose to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. They had “become inevitably self-centered, their will being ‘curved’ back on itself.” (Rist, 148) Their desires were not focused toward God, which caused them to falter. God wouldn’t have allowed the devil to so easily deceive them but…

    essentially a clean slate that has not yet been tainted by the sins of the world. Every human is born with the same purity and morals as Adam and Eve when they were first created by God. Everyone can freely choose God by the exercise of free will and rationality, while God 's grace is thought only to be an aid in the journey down a righteous path. Despite this, Pelagianism fails to understand one key aspect of human nature, which is weakness. We are by nature going to make mistakes that may lead…

    Anselm is best known for the arguments he provided in regards to the existence of God. He especially contributed to what today is known as the “ontological argument”, or an argument about the state of existing or being. Anselm provides many reasonable arguments for the existence of God, and had an avid ability to explain reason behind it. Through Cur Deus Homo, he tries to rationalize God’s method for saving the world through Christ’s death as satisfaction, Anselm has been able to offer a…

    Aristotle believes all mankind’s knowledge comes from experience and later categories. Aristotle used his four causes to categorize knowledge, the material cause, the formal cause, efficient cause, and the final cause. Calvin disagrees with Aristotle’s position on man’s blank state claiming, “Original sin, therefore, appears to be a hereditary depravity and corruption of our nature, diffused through all the parts of the soul” (Mcneil 10). Calvin states since the fall, man is born in a state of…

    Good And Evil Essay

    • 3 Pages

    The discussion about good and evil in relation to capital punishment was particularly striking to me, because I did not before this course think about the perception of good and evil in relation to the Christian, Judaism, and Islam traditions. I had a one-dimensional view of good and evil, because of my Christian background and these different approaches made me think more critically about the nature of good and evil. For example, in Christianity the fall from good to evil is because of Adam and…
