A Moderate Reformed Doctrine of Original Sin

Featuring:

Oliver Crisp speaks about "A Moderate Reformed Doctrine of Original Sin" at the Evolution and Christian Faith Conference in 2015.

"I shall present a moderate Reformed doctrine of original sin. This does not include a doctrine of original guilt (i.e. that I am guilty of someone else's sin). Also, it is a doctrine consistent with more than one story about human origins (i.e. it does not presume monogenism, the notion that we are descended from an aboriginal human pair). Moreover, this doctrine has greater ecumenical promise than some other Protestant accounts of original sin. I shall argue that these are strengths rather than weaknesses of the view."

BioLogos—more than any other organization I know of—helps churches understand the beauty of science.
