INSTRUCTOR: Rev. Timothy A. Williams, BA., MA., PhD.
COURSE INVITATION: One of the bedrocks of Christian theology is the doctrine of Original sin. Its significance is far reaching, and its rejection is the death nell to the Christian faith. Yet, this doctrine has been maligned, ignored, or mistreated by even so-called Christians.
Beginning on Monday, Septmeber 14th, Heritage School of Theology will offer the course, "The Doctrine of Original Sin". In additioan to dispelling the myths about Original Sin, this course will seek to define the doctrine of Original Sin, outline both its historical interpretations and rejections, and defend its truth from Scripture.
I invite you to find out more about this important topic of the condition of man by taking this course on "The Doctrine of Original Sin".
