John T. McNeill. This should be a simple corollary from the theory of sin. Without such a theory, I believe that the notion of sin seems to function in this context merely as a though terminating meme, which allows people to dismiss the problem of evil, but which serves no other purpose and has no other value.
Original sin is evident in the tantrums and unreasonable anger of babies. In Augustine's view, even a baby may display murderous jealousy of his own brother at the breast.

In the book he takes emergence theory as it has been developed variously by philosophers, sociologists, and “hard” scientists and uses it as a lens for approaching the concept of S/sin in Romans.
While I think his applications in Romans are pretty much on the mark, the far more exciting aspect of this book for me, is the potential this lens has for thinking about further spiritual reality.5/5(2).

Modern Philosophy denies the existence of sin, but any such denial is part of a false philosophy. All refusal to admit the existence of sin can neither be controverted nor challenged. The Bible declares sin’s existence and the human heart displays it.
Sin is not a myth, it is not a figment of the mind; sin is a fact. Aulén interpreted the ransom theory as a "victory over the powers which hold mankind in bondage: sin, death, and the devil." According to Pugh, "Ever since [Aulén's] time, we call these patristic ideas the Christus Victor way of seeing the cross.".
