Overview

The relation of man to his Creator has engaged the attention of earnest
and thoughtful minds, from the days of the patriarch of Uz to the most
recent controversies of modern times. The entrance of sin into the
world has vastly complicated this relationship; so that, considered in
its various bearings, it involves some of the most difficult problems
with which the human intellect has ever attempted to grapple. The
extent to which the intellect itself has been weakened and beclouded by
the corruption of our nature, renders us the less able to penetrate
into the deep mysteries of human duty and destiny. Whether man sins now
as essentially affected with the taint of the first sin, and involved
in the responsibilities of the first sinner, or sins wholly on his own
account and by his own free act, under the bias of no connection with
Adam, except what connection obtains between example on the one hand
and imitation on the other? whether, on the supposition of a scheme of
saving grace, grace is simply divine and external aid to the will of
man, already operating freely in the direction of what is good, and so
establishing a meritorious claim upon God for the bestowal of such aid,
or a supernatural influence creating in man the very liberty itself to
will and to do what is good? and whether, in the latter view of divine
grace, as bestowed in divine sovereignty, and therefore according to a
divine purpose, it can be reconciled with human responsibility? -- are
the questions which produced the sharp encounter of keen and
conflicting wits between Pelagius and Augustine of old.
