Is Sex A Sin? Original Sin, Augustine, Gnosticism & Calvinism – Jesse Morrell

IS SEX A SIN?

Is all sexual desire, even in marriage, sinful? Many seem unaware that Augustine’s doctrine of original sin, which is the historic doctrine of original sin, teaches that sexual desire is a curse of Adam’s original sin, that sin is transmitted in sex because of these sinful desires, and that the nature we inherit from Adam is sinful because of its sexual desires.

Calvinists claim that they hold to the doctrine of original sin, that Augustine was a hero and a champion of orthodox doctrine, and that if you reject original sin you are a heretical Pelagian. But do they really know what Augustine’s doctrine of original sin was? Could it not be that the Pelagians were right in rejecting Augustine’s theory?

In truth, even Calvinists today do not agree with Augustine’s doctrine of original sin but agree with the Pelagians that the involuntary sexual desires of the body is natural, normal, part of God’s design, and not inherently sinful.

  1. Someone wrote, “Wonderful video, thank you for exposing the real heretic’s again. 🙂 You handled a difficult subject in a very tasteful manor.”

    And someone else wrote: “This is great, Jesse. Sex is a subject I’ve often felt needed covered in exactly this way, but few seem willing to go near it. This is another great contribution you’ve made. I’m excited to hear that 2014 is intended to be a year focussed on documentaries for you. Looking forward to it.”
