Insight into the Image Of God, by Julie Canny

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.
