Does Humanity Have a Fallen Nature?

Much of the greatest writing done by Christian theologians, such as Augustine [4th century], Kierkegaard [1800’s], and Reinhold Niebuhr [20th century], has been motivated by the desire to analyze man’s “original” sin, to show how all his other spiritual problems arise out of this “originating” sin. But what of modern man’s difficulty in honestly believing there is a divine reality, and, hence, any ultimate meaning of life? These problems can, of course, be interpreted as flowing from some underlying perversity common to man, defined as self-centeredness, or pride. But such interpretations seem more ingenious than illuminating.
