Proust, in his first book, wrote about (nod, nod; wink, wink…)

I have something a little better…
The teacher beats the child from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin, and from ear to ear

Habit is the ballast that chains the dog to his vomit

Proust described what he was working on in a letter to a friend: “I have in progress an essay on pederasty”
Hamartiology (Greek: αμαρτια, hamartia, “missing the mark,” “sin,” + λογια, logia, “sayings” or “discourse“) is the branch of Christian theology or, more specifically, Systematic Theology, which is the study of sin with a view to articulating a doctrine of it.
Substantial branches of hamartiology subscribe to the doctrine of Original Sin, as taught by the Apostle Paul (squealer, sellout, punk) in Romans 5:12-19 and popularized by Saint (toady, sellout, fake, punk) Augustine. He taught that all descendants of Adam and Eve are guilty of Adam’s sin without their own personal choice.
In contrast, Pelagius argued that humans enter life as essentially tabulae rasae. The Fall that occurred when Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s Special Instructions not to disobey him was held to have affected humankind only minimally.
The degree to which a Christian believes humanity is impacted by either a literal or metaphorical “Fall” determines their understanding of related theological concepts like salvation, justification, and sanctification.
