The first one which is referred to as total depravity stipulate that sin is a force that has affected man’s stability as well as how they relate with god. All aspects of a human being such as soul, mind and body have felt the impact of sin. This means that sin affects a human being wholly. The second one is the unconditional election. Calvin believes that God deals with an individual and not a group.
What is sin? Sin is a transgression of a law or a rebellion against God. Sin is actions that harms our relationship with God or another person. Sin is choosing to act in a way that separates us from God. The question then becomes is there a way to rate sin?
Furthermore, John Donne writes, “batter my heart” as a way of the speaker to assert his yearning to be made new in Christ. He endorses the idea of man being covered in sin by stating that he needs to be beaten clean and punished for his transgressions. It is evident that Donne is conscious of the reality of sin and it’s affects on

Milton presents Satan in a very human light, showing that despite his dramatic words, his “count 'nance cast… doubt” and he has insecurities like any human (Milton 526-527).

The significance of Satan’s realization that he is in Hell, defeated by his adversary, does not deter him. Like Aeneas, Satan’s journey to the underworld allowed him to realize his true purpose.
In fact, it is the exact opposite. Contrapasso is used, eternally, for only one sin. If a person were to reject God’s salvation the individual’s sins would not be forgiven and they would be separated from God forever.

Paul did not longed to be delivered from the penalty of sin - that was paid for us on the cross - Paul longed for deliverance from the power of sin.

Those who endure suffering with humility and hope can recognize the will of God. Suffering is “something to be endured with humility, courage, patience, and hope, while holding firmly to the conviction that God is mysteriously in history having people work through suffering itself as the way of achieving the divine will. In other words, paradoxically, suffering is not a wasted part of the human being but a way of expressing one’s faithfulness to
