What the difference between the sinful nature and sins committed? In what way is our nature corrupted by sin? What original righteousness? Is it possible to not sin? What is the guilt of sin and how is it passed down?
In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, Jim, Brett, and Allen continue their discussion on sin by looking at questions 17, Into what estate did the fall bring mankind? and 18, Wherein consists the sinfulness of that estate into which man fell? of John Wesley’s Revision of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. They talk about why correct thinking of our fallen nature matters, how modern zombie tropes can be the perfect analogy for our sinful nature, and why the doctrine of Christian perfection is so important.
Along the way, Allen makes a big comeback, Jim makes cheesy preacher jokes, and Brett decides its time to catch up on newer movies and TV shows.
