The Doctrine of Man
- Is there Good in Humanity Apart From God's Grace? by James Henley Thornwell The question, therefore, which we have to discuss is, Whether the sinner, independently of grace, possesses any element that can be truly and properly called good? Whether any seeds of holiness are still deposited in his nature? Whether he is able in any sphere of cognition or of practice to compass the holy and divine? There are but two sources of proof: Scripture and experience - the word of God and the consciousness of those who have been renewed by the Holy Ghost.
- Original Sin, by Michael Bremmer If God created man and woman, then why do all men and women sin? Why do all die? How can death and sin by part of God's creation? The doctrines of the fall of man and original sin answer these questions.
