In Book I, Chapter 7 of his Confessions, St. Augustine writes: “Hear me, O God! How wicked are the sins of men! Men say this and you pity them, because you made man, but you did not make sin in him.” Augustine is saying that, although God created humans, it is humans—through Adam and Eve’s original act of disobedience in the Garden—who created evil; and therefore, it is we humans, and not God, who are collectively responsible for the creation of evil in both senses (active and passive evil, or wrongs done and suffered) in the world.
Question: Do you agree? In other words: Does the theory of Original Sin in fact get God “off the hook,” so to speak, for the creation of evil? Yes or no? Explain how and why you either agree or disagree with Augustine’s view. Then imagine how someone who holds the opposite conclusion might object to your argument, and show how you can successfully answer their objections.
