Did Augustine Corrupt the Church With Gnostic Doctrine?

The following is a video done by Jesse Morrell.  Brother Morrell holds to moral government theology but his video is interesting.  I cannot say whether I agree or disagree.  I know so little of Augustine and his theology.  I am aware of some of his teachings but have not read his works nor any books on him.  I am aware that Calvin gleamed much from Augustine and I know that many Calvinists today hold that Augustine was a champion of orthodoxy in his battles with Pelagius.

Morrell argues that Augustine was wrong in his views on mankind. He argues that the early Church held to free will and that man was not born with a sinful nature.

Watch the video and judge all things by the Word of God.  The Word of God alone is the inerrant and infallible truth of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

  1. Was mankind born with a sinful nature? Does it really matter if we recognise that we have all sinned and will be judged for our own sin? It is OUR sin that condemns us, not Adam’s.

    No matter what out nature may have been at birth – it isn’t long before our own sin makes that nature irrelevant.

    • I agree. Personal sin is more of the issue than Adam’s sin. However, some teach that we are born guilty of Adam’s sin.
