English to Portuguese: O perigo real do pelagianismo. General field: Other Detailed field: Religion
Source text - English Pelagianism takes its name from an austere monk, most likely of Irish descent, named Pelagius. He died around 418. He should not be confused with the two Popes who shared this same name.
Pelagianism can simply be thought of as the self-help heresy. It essentially “denies the elevation of man into the supernatural state, and denies original sin. According to Pelagians the sin of Adam affected his descendants by way of bad example only” (Ott, pp. 222-3). This means that Christ’s saving work of redemption consists above all in His teaching and His example of virtue. For Pelagius, Jesus was just a great teacher as was Moses before Him. Furthermore, “Pelagianism regarded grace as within the natural capacity of man.” According to this view man has a natural capacity to live a sinless and holy life and merit eternal bliss by exercising his free will. The Pelagians believed this natural capacity was aided by external graces given to us by God… things like the Mosaic Law, the Gospel, the example of virtue set by Our Lord and His Mother and others. This means that man can achieve even the remission of his sins by his own power, by the act of turning his will away from sin. This makes Pelagianism pure naturalismo.
Translation - Portuguese O nome pelagianismo deve-se a um monge austero, muito provavelmente de origem irlandesa, chamado Pelágio. Ele faleceu por volta do ano 418. Não devemos confundi-lo com os dois Papas que tiveram este mesmo nome.
O pelagianismo pode ser concebido simplesmente como a heresia da autoajuda. Ela essencialmente “nega a elevação do homem a um estado sobrenatural, e nega o pecado original. De acordo com os pelagianos, o pecado de Adão afetou os seus descendentes apenas por meio do mau exemplo” (Ott, pp. 222-3). Isso significa que o trabalho salvífico de redenção de Cristo consiste acima de tudo em Seu ensinamento e Seu exemplo de virtude. Para Pelágio, Jesus foi apenas um grande mestre, assim como Moisés antes Dele. Além disso, “O pelagianismo considerava a graça como algo dentro da capacidade natural do homem.” De acordo com essa visão, o homem tem uma capacidade natural de viver uma vida santa e sem pecado e merecer a felicidade eterna ao exercer a sua vontade livre. Os pelagianos acreditavam que esta capacidade natural era auxiliada por graças externas que nos foram dadas por Deus… coisas como a Lei Mosaica, o Evangelho, o exemplo de virtude estabelecido por Nosso Senhor e Sua Mãe, entre outros. Isso significa que o homem pode alcançar até mesmo a remissão de seus pecados por seu próprio poder, pelo ato de afastar sua vontade do pecado, o que torna o pelagianismo um puro naturalismo.
