Resolved: The doctrine of the Sin Nature is unbiblical and runs contrary to the truth of man's autonomy and God's justice.


Contrary - Against; opposed to.

Autonomy - Freedom from external control; self-government.

Justice - In accordance with that which is righteously justified; equity.

Unbiblical - Not in accordance with what is biblically true; antithetical of scripture.

Sin Nature - The doctrine based primarily upon Romans 5:12 which claims that, through Adam's original sin, all men have received a corrupted nature which either: A. Passed down to all men an inclination toward sin, or B. Made all siners through the inheritance of Adam's guilt. Through the fall of Adam, according to this doctrine, all men have received, from conception, a fallen estate of total depravity whereby we could never follow God's commandments without inevitably committing transgressions.
