Life & the Human Condition

What does Christianity teach about our lives?

Christianity teaches that our lives — spirit and body — begin at conception. We are born sinful and we sin because we are sinful. Our natural inclination is to do evil.

Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

Psalm 51:5

What does Mormonism teach about our lives?

Mormonism teaches that our spirit life begins in the pre-existence where we matured as spirits before coming to earth. Mormonism teaches that man is born without sin, and becomes sinful only when he sins. The LDS church teaches that man’s natural inclination is to do good.
