Some people seem to be unable to say two things: “Thank You,” and “I’m sorry.” CS
We were created in the image of God.
There is a sort of human “righteousness”: it’s what God was commented on when He told Jehoshaphat, “There is *some* good in you.”
This “good,” however:
¤is not salfivic,
¤not pure, and
¤by definition is tainted with self-worth, hence unclean.
And we all know that NOTHING UNCLEAN can get into heaven!
Therefore, the Doctrine of Total Depravity is true. We *are* totally depraved, just not totally evil. There’s a difference.
