Rauschenbusch

There is the more inducement to teach clearly on the social transmission and perpetuation of sin because the ethical and religious forces can really do something to check and prevent the transmission of sin along social channels, whereas the biological transmission of original sin, except for the possible influence of eugenics, seems to be beyond our influence.

Walter Rauschenbusch, A Theology for the Social Gospel, pp.67, 68
