The Beauty of Original Sin

Andrew Basden

The idea, or doctrine, of Original Sin got a bad name, probably because of dour Calvinists (who were very unlike the real Calvin). But in fact, it's a very liberating notion. Think about this (remembering that the idea is bound up with that of God's proactive redemption):

In these ways the idea of Original Sin, linked with God's redemption, is a real blessing. I find it profoundly beautiful. And practical. Even though I am still learning to live in its light.
