WARNING: Jesse Morrell who is here on Youtube under the screen name of BibleTheology ( http://youtube.com/user/BibleTheology ) is a vigorous proponent of Pelagian's heresies. He has such an affinity for Pelagius and his heresies that he is on record for saying,

"I think some people will be surprised when they see that Charles Finney is in Heaven but Augustine and John Calvin are in hell."

He then provides an example of what the logical outcome of Pelagianism will lead a person to (self-righteousness):

"Honestly, my heart is right before God."

Here, we learn that the heart which is "deceitful above all things and desperately wicked" of which the Holy Spirit inspired Jeremiah to ask the rhetorical question, "Who can know it?" (Jer. 17:9) has apparently been figured out by Mr. Morrell as evidenced by his claim that he knows his heart is right before God. You can read these quotes here for yourself along with others he has made: http://youtube.com/comment_servlet?al...

Beware of the theology put forth by his Youtube channel. It is not Biblical.

Pelagianism is a theological theory named after Pelagius (ca. 354 -- ca. 420/440). It is the belief that original sin did not taint human nature (which God called very good), and that mortal will is still capable of choosing good or evil without Divine aid. Thus, Adam's sin was "to set a bad example" for his progeny, but his actions did not have the other consequences imputed to Original Sin. Pelagianism views the role of Jesus as "setting a good example" for the rest of humanity (thus counteracting Adam's bad example). In short, humanity has full control, and thus full responsibility, for its own salvation in addition to full responsibility for every sin (the latter insisted upon by both proponents and opponents of Pelagianism). According to Pelagian doctrine, because humanity does not require God's grace for salvation (beyond the creation of will), Jesus' execution is devoid of the redemptive quality ascribed to it by orthodox Christian theology.
