(p.175) Conclusions
The Emergence of Sin

Matthew Croasmun

Oxford University Press

The conclusion considers multiple constructive, theological vistas opened up by the analysis offered in the rest of the book. A provisional analysis of the “Market” as an emergent mythological person is sketched. Various trajectories for constructive hamartiology are explored. The ontology of mythological persons is described in terms of Hartshorne’s dipolar theism; Sin as a false deity can be understood as having only a consequent, and not an antecedent, nature. It is proposed that this multilevel approach to sin can help facilitate ecumenical work against sin in our cities, providing a framework in which we can value ecclesial actions that target each of the three levels of Sin’s dominion—personal discipleship, social action, and ministries of deliverance—and theorize the interactions between these various interventions.
