Sin and Guilt-the Ultimate Reader Challenge
If anyone comes up with a satisfactory answer on this one, I’m buying them a pizza and getting them a book deal, for starters.
This question concerns what I see as the biggest problem with Christianity / the biggest obstacle to my faith.
Why should we feel responsible for our sins if God created us to live as sinful creatures?
Preemptive response#1: Yes, the Fall had to happen before we were sinful creatures. But I would contend that the Fall was really a part of our creation, fully planned on.
Preemptive response #2: I realize that a Free Will response is the easiest answer to this question. I’d still love to hear one, but this question is directed especially at Presbyterians and other predestination-ists.
Looking forward to hearing from you all, whoever you are.
