BAARD, R.S.. The Heidelberg Catechism on human sin and misery. Acta theol. [online]. 2014, vol.34, suppl.20, pp.86-98. ISSN 2309-9089.

The Heidelberg Catechism's section on Sin and Misery does not provide a moralistic or legalistic perspective on the human condition. Instead, it offers, in abbreviated format, a restatement of the doctrine of original sin, which points to sin as a condition and not just an act. As such, it invites us to think more deeply about the complexities of the human condition and of human agency.

Palabras clave : Heidelberg Catechism; Sin; Misery; Heidelbergse Kategismus; Sonde; Ellende.
