Musings from Jonathan Edwards #1


Sin is not voluntary because all men sin.

There must be a cause to sin because all sin – for if we sin voluntarily then some must not sin, but because all sin, it is therefore not voluntary – for there cannot be an uncaused cause (except God).

 

Helping Question: If sin is voluntary, why do infants (who do not sin by choice) die?
