TPHL 672 - Problem of Sin and Evil in Christianity and World Religions

3 credits
All religious traditions address the existential reality of sin and evil and look upon their religious teachings and practices as ways to overcome these realities. What has been the history of dealing with these problems in the Christian tradition? How did the concept of “original sin” emerge and what role does it play in Christian theology? How is the problem of evil explained within the concept of a God who is loving, just, and all powerful? How do other religious traditions deal with these problems and what we can learn from them?
