In Augustine's four stages of the Christian life, is the Reborn Man in the same state as the Pre-Fall Man?

In which state was Christ the man while on earth?

  • Welcome to Christianity.SE. For a quick overview, please take the Site Tour. For your question to work here, you would need to specify a particular Christian denomination whose perspective you're interested in. Is it is now, it is a "truth question," which is a matter of opinion. See: What topics can I ask about here? and: How we are different than other sites. – Lee Woofenden Nov 6 '16 at 16:47
  • Are you specifically asking about how Augustine would answer these questions, based on what we know from his writings? – Nathaniel Nov 6 '16 at 22:28
  • Yes, the first question is on what Augustine really meant, because both have the same able to sin and able to not sin. The second is an application of the fourfold state. My information and knowledge is based on this: monergism.com/thethreshold/articles/onsite/four-fold.html – Old Geezer Nov 7 '16 at 13:51
