Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 1.5R

Summary of text [comment] page 33

[Schoonenberg addressed two facets of sin and virtue.

The “subjective” facet concerns the habituation of the will. This calls to mind conscience and disposition in the intersecting nested forms.

Consciencefree and consciencelacking associates to the “will” in the moral and religious sense of the term.

Dispositions also appear “willful” in the natural philosophical sense.

The human “will” then, broadly describes both aspects of possibility in the intersecting nested forms.

Actions emerge from the will.  Human actions situate the will (consciencespecified and dispositions).

Habitual actions change the will by increasing the likelihood of a particular configuration of consciencespecified and dispositions.  We become accustomed to certain environmental triggers.  We may seek out those circumstances because they tell us what we want to hear (for sin) or challenge us to overcome our selfish habits (for virtue).

In time, we may adopt a thinkgroup or thinkdivine that consistently puts our actions into context and further habituates the will.]
