Puritan Board Freshman
We know of the effects of the fall upon us. Fear, shame, guilt and anxiety are all peculiar human experiences and all are fruit and effects of original sin and personal sin. Does anyone know of any formalisation of the mechanical effects of sin upon the body. Can we find in nature, expressions like E=mc^2 that give representations of spiritual things? I dont want to sound like a quack, but could one not prove and demonstrate sin in regards to the physical body. For example, the body pertains to mass, the breathe to energy, and hence something like sexual sin would reduce ones energy, that is their breathe, hence reducing their mass (destroying the body, including the brain by threatening its continence). The breathing could be connected to the imagination, and the defilement therein by idols which destroy reason also, the imagination bearing upon the breathing, the breathing upon the mass and health of the body. This latter point, that is the imagination, as evidenced in children, have their eyes opened during adolescents, wherein the purity of the childs imagination is wholly lost unto idols, although the brain becomes more developed and rational thought is easier, nonetheless, idols in the imagination make war on reason.
