While at the Keswick convention, Wilfred Owen felt doubt and unsure about how Christian attitudes addressed instances of social misery. The doctrine of original sin was highlighted by Evangelical theology in such a way that encouraged suffering. Suffering was something that Evangelicals urged to be submitted to since this was viewed to be the unavoidable consequence of original sin.

One of the fundamental concepts that Owen learned throughout his experience as assistant was how particular things that could not be changed simply had to be endured.
