"Doctrine of Original Sin" by Wesley, Part II

I have not been keeping up with my studies as of late. However, today I picked up my reading of Wesley again. The section I am in, the scriptural support for the doctrine of original sin, is very slow going. Wesley is responding to one John Taylor, who seemed to believe that through education and culture, man had reached the same status as Adam had before the Fall. Taylor asserted that man's punishment for sin was physical death only. Wesley not only refutes this, but also the notion that we are also punished for Adam's transgression. Once I finish with this section, I will post articles on my other blog. This entry must be short as I am on a computer at the public library and my time is almost up.
