A Dose of Theology – Hamartology

Hamartology

The theological study of sin. Hamartology concerns itself with the understanding, origin, nature, and consequences of sin. Also it studies the way in which sin is transmitted across the human race.

Used in a sentence: If you are studying the fall of man in Genesis 3, you are doing hamartology.
