The Utter Depravity of Humanity
Part 1

Romans 3:9-11
All Under Sin
It is Everyone
Clearing up the Confusion
Understanding being Under Sin
Physical Life confuses us about Spiritual Death
Spiritual Deeds confuse us about Spiritual Death
Lack of Evil from people confuses us about
Spiritual Death
Galatians 3:22-23

“22 But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. 23 Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.”
It is the defining attribute of how you make decisions, what you desire, and your disposition toward God, others, and yourself.
The Disposition of the Sin Nature
No One is Righteous
No One Understands
No One Seeks God
A responsibility to seek doesn't mean men will or can actually seek.
"A good God would not command people to do something they cannot and will not do and then hold them accountable for that"
Galatians 2:21
“I do not nullify the grace of God, for if justification were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.”
Actually it is the goodness of God to call men to that which they can never do apart from Him. It humbles humanity, makes them realize their need for Him, and makes His love, grace, and glory preeminent.
What lost men are seeking is not the God they so desperately need to save them but themselves.
Hope in the
Face of Depravity

Pursuers of the Word
Students of Trials

Romans 5:1-5

“1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
