Belief in the doctrine of Original Sin is firmly held by many Christians, but it turns out that it’s not necessarily biblical. Further, argues Danielle Shroyer, it’s bad for people and bad for the church.

He examines the question of race, but through the lens of our bodies and what our bodies mean in the midst of a racialized world that perpetually dehumanizes dark bodies.
