Comments on Jeremy Cohen's Essay (1980) "Original Sin as The Evil Inclination"
Series: Reverberations of the Fall. Price: $2.00 USD. Words: 4,520. Language: English. Published: August 11, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Theology / Apologetics, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Judaism / Theology
Jeremy Cohen, writing at Cornell University, publishes his essay in the Harvard Theological Review (vol 73(3/4) pp 495-520). He raises three concentric questions, leading to a comparison of Christian doctrine of original sin and the Jewish concept of the evil inclination. My comments examine this article using the category-based nested form and the first singularity.

Why doesn't he do something about the evil that lurks in the hearts of all of us? Well, he has.

Promoters claim it also has numerous health benefits. Are these statements true?
