[Schleiermachr?] (Christology + Anthropology) "That the Redeemer should be entirely free from all sinfulness is no objection at all to the complete identity of human nature in Him and others for we have already laid down that sin is so little an essential part of being of man that we can never regard it as anything else than a disturbance of nature. It follows that the possibility of a sinless development is in itself not incongruous [Page 2] until the idea of human nature; indeed, this possibility is involved, and recognized, in the consciousness of sin as guilt, as that is universally understood." CF, [S?] 94, 385
