>So you're going to say that Romans 1 is pelagianism as well?
Nothing there speaks of pelagianism, nor agrees to that heresy.
>What if I tell you that the original sin is the weak and wounded nature of man itself?
Then you would be wrong.

<So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.

<65He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled themPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
