Quotes Worth Pondering – Tony Merida

QuotesWorthPonderingReferring to Ephesians 2:1-2… As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,  in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient” Merida writes…

Theologically, Paul is describing the doctrine of “total depravity”: that is , all aspects of our being have been infected with the deadly disease of sin. Paul is also describing our “total inability”; that is, morally we are not capable of responding to God apart from grace. The fact is we do not want to respond to God. But oh, how we need God’s grace!
