Calvinism BEFORE Calvin – #5

Total Depravity (a short epilogue):

Ignatius (A.D. 110): “They that are carnal [unbelievers] cannot do the things that are spiritual…Nor can the unbelievers do the things of belief.”

By no means is this every verse or section of scripture that deals with the total depravity of mankind, but if you’ve not yet grown sick of the topic and want to study further…

1 Corinthians 1:18, 21-24; 1:30, 2:14 – 1 John 1:8,10; 5:18-19 – 1 Samuel 24:13; – 2 Chronicles 4:3-4, 6:36; – 2 Peter 2:13; 2:19 – 2 Timothy 2:25-26; 3:2-4; – Colossians 1:21; 2:13; – Deuteronomy 29:2-4; – Ecclesiastes 7:20; 7:29; 8:11; 9:3; – Ephesians 2:1-2, 4-5; 2:3; 2:12-13; 4:17-18, 23; – Ezekiel 11:19, 36:26; – Galatians 3:22; 4:8-9; – Genesis 6:5 & 8:21; – Hebrews 11:6; – Isaiah 1:5-6; 5:1-4; 53:6; 64:6-7; 65:1; – Jeremiah 2:29; 10:7-8, 14; 13:23; 17:9; – Job 14:4; – John 1:12-13; 3:19-20; 3:27; 6:44-65; 8:34; 8:44;14:4; 14:16-17; 15:5; – Luke 18:19; – Mark 10:18; 7:21-23; – Matthew 11:27; 12:34-35; 13:14; 15:19; 7:18; – Micah 7:2-4; – Philippians 1:11; – Proverbs 10:20; 10:23; 15:8-9; 20:9; 21:10; 28:26; 28:9; – Psalm 4:2, 5:9; 10:4, 36:1-2, 51:5; 52:3-4; 58:3-5, 94:11; 140:8; 143:2; – Romans 1:24-27; 1:29-30; 3:9-12; 3:23; 5:12,19; 6:6,16,17,19,20; 7:14; 7:18; 8:7-8; 9:16; 11:32; 14:23; – Titus 1:15-16; 3:3;

Origen (A.D. 184-254): “Our free will…or human nature is not sufficient to seek God in any manner.”

2Timothy 2:15 – Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Thus endeth my yammering on Total Depravity, and we will proceed to another of the “Doctrines Of Grace” in our next post. I apologize for the delay between posts #3 and #4, and hope the coming ones will be closer together, but we’ll see what time allows. After all, it ain’t like this is my day job 😉
