From a Christians point of view, we were all born into sin. The Bible says “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me”. (The Holy Bible, Psalm 51:5) The author of Psalm is that we are all by nature children of wrath only because we are all born sinners. The Bible explains that “God did not create the human race sinful, but upright.” (DesiringGod) But we all automatically became sinful because of Adam’s sin.

He embedded new and intellectual concepts into his work; ideas that not many people, until recently, have had the courage to dig deep into. Portraying the tensions between human and divine, The Human Abstract highlights human’s abstract reasoning that is destructive of joy and stimulates the arise of false virtues. Written in a didactic and objective tone, Blake heightens both the true barbaric intentions of the church and the relativity of the virtues.
