Pelagius vs. Augustine

Mr. Salter


Augustine vs. Pelagius p 18

  • Pelagius emphasized unconditional free will and the ability to better oneself spiritually without grace.

    • This was in direct contrast to Augustine, who believed that humanity was completely helpless in Adam’s sin and in desperate need of grace.

    • Pelagius taught one could live a sinless life and merit heaven


Augustine vs. Pelagius p 18

  • Pelagius taught one could (should) live a sinless life and merit (earn) heaven

  • Pelagius rejected the teaching of “original sin,” that resulted in ‘the Fall’ of humanity from God’s grace

  • Pelagius thought that God commanding a person to do something that he lacked the ability to do would be useless: “To call a person to something he considers impossible does him no good.” It should be within our power to achieve “good” on our own


Augustine vs. Pelagius p 18

  • Augustine teaching on Original Sin

  • Augustine said, Adam originally possessed freedom; the free will to sin (or not sin)

  • After the Fall, all human beings participate in Adam’s sin (concupiscence), which renders them not able not to sin.

  • After the mediation of divine grace in Jesus Christ, humans are once again given the ability not to sin

    • Because of Original Sin, humans are no longer naturally good—that's why we need Jesus’ redemption
