Augustine's Anthropology - PSA Examined
This is the second episode in a 7 Part Series exploring the Augustinian Doctrine of Penal Substitution, abbreviated as PSA. In this episode, we detail and review the first three claims of PSA, as developed by Augustine: Original Sin, Total Depravity & Infant Depravity.
Joining Idol Killer for the entirety of this series is Paul Vendredi, who himself produced a long running podcast detailing PSA's claims and problems.
The Big Three:
Original Sin: the belief that as a result of Adam's sin, all mankind is created sinful and guilty, stained by concupiscence as mankind was in Adam's loins when he sinned.
Total Depravity: the belief Adam's corruption extends to all parts of his progeny, from the flesh to the soul, from the will to the intellect. As a result all mankind is born spiritually dead and unable to respond to God.
Infant Depravity: the belief that Original Sin and Total Depravity affects everyone the moment they come into existence, thus infants enter the world under God's wrath and deserving judgment.
