This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages. Original sin is the doctrine which holds that human nature has been morally and ethically corrupted due to the disobedience of mankind's first parents to the revealed will of God. In the Bible, the first human transgression of God's command is described as the sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden resulting in what theology calls the Fall of mankind. The doctrine of original sin holds that every person born into the world is tainted by the Fall such that all of humanity is ethically debilitated, and people are powerless to rehabilitate themselves, unless rescued by God. John Calvin (1509 – 1564) - TULIP - T otal depravity. – Whole corruption of man’s nature. - U nconditional election. – God chooses who goes to heaven, based on whim. - L imited atonement. – Saved for those that God chose to save. - I rresistible grace. – If God chose to save you, you do not get a choice.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
