To go with yesterday's blog, here are some verses speaking to the issue of depravity.
Psalm 51:5 - "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me."
Eccl. 7:20 - "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not."
Jeremiah 13:23 - "Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil."
Jeremiah 17:9 - "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?"
Romans 3:10-18 - "As it is written, There is none righteous, no not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They have all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips; whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood; destruction and misery are in their ways; and the way of peace have they not known; there is no fear of God before their eyes."
Romans 3:23 - "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God"
Romans 5: 12 - "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned"
Rom. 8:7-8 - "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God."
I Cor. 2:14: - "The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
