We must now consider the effects of sin; and (1) the corruption of the good of nature; (2) the stain on the soul; (3) the debt of punishment.
Under the first head there are six points of inquiry:
A Whether the good of nature is diminished by sin?
A Whether it can be taken away altogether?
A Of the four wounds, mentioned by Bede, with which human nature is stricken in consequence of sin.
A Whether privation of mode, species and order is an effect of sin?
A Whether death and other bodily defects are the result of sin?
A Whether they are, in any way, natural to man?
