The FALSE DOCTRINE
the DOCTRINE of
Now the doctrine of total depravity is based upon the
teaching known as the doctrine of ORIGINAL SIN that is widely taught
in not only Calvinism and Reformed Theology, but by many other
denominations of the main stream church. In fact there is some form
of this original sin doctrine that is taught in nearly every
the doctrine of original sin states that ALL of mankind has INHERITED
a SIN NATURE
from Adam. In other words, BECAUSE of the ORIGINAL SIN of Adam and
Eve, who DISOBEYED God by eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, then ALL of mankind from Adam to this present day have INHERITED
this so called SINFUL NATURE that causes them to sin. And some
churches such as Calvinism and Reformed Theology take this teaching
of original sin that all of mankind are BORN with a SINFUL NATURE to
the extreme and teach that mankind is therefore SO TOTALLY and
COMPLETELY DEPRAVED that it is impossible for any person to even
think about SEEKING after God and turn away from sinning, UNLESS they
happen to be ONE of the ELECT who have FIRST been REGENERATED by the
Holy Spirit and drawn by the Holy Spirit so that they can understand
the word of God enough in order to be saved.
Now the verses used to support this DOCTRINE of ORIGINAL
SIN are in my opinion taken OUT of CONTEXT and have therefore been
MISUNDERSTOOD by those who teach this false doctrine and by those who
are being taught this false doctrine. In other words, the scriptures
have been twisted either intentionally or unintentionally and made to
say what the whole word of Almighty God clearly does NOT teach.
So then, let us begin this section of our study in God
word on the doctrine of TOTAL DEPRAVITY by looking at the passage of
scripture in Romans chapter 5, which is probably the most widely
recognized passage of scripture that is used to teach that all of
mankind has INHERITED a SINFUL NATURE and therefore is TOTALLY UNABLE
to live without sinning.
Please read Romans 5:8-21, which teaches us that because
of Adam's sin that
God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.
9. Much more then, being now
justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10. For if, when we were
enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much
more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11. And not only so, but we
also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now
received the atonement.
12. Wherefore, as by ONE man
of the one man Adam)
into the world,
and DEATH by
sin; and so
passed upon all
Why id DEATH pass upon ALL of mankind?)
because that all of mankind have INHERITED a SINFUL NATURE, but
rather that all of mankind have SINNED at one time or other in their
13. (For until the law sin
was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14. Nevertheless death
reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after
the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that
was to come.
15. But not as the offense,
so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one many be
dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by
one man, Jesus Christ, has abounded unto many.
16. And not as it was by one
that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to
condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses unto
17. For if by one man's
offense DEATH reigned by one; much more they which receive
abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in
life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18. Therefore as by the
offense of one judgment came upon all men to CONDEMNATION; even so by
the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto
justification of life.
19. For as by one man's
disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall
many be made righteous.
20. Moreover the law entered,
that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much
21. That as sin has reigned
unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto
eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord."
Now those that teach the doctrine of original sin that
all of mankind has INHERITED a SINFUL NATURE usually take
12 out of context and teach that because of this ORIGINAL sin of Adam
that SIN has entered into the HEART of EVERY human being who has ever
In other words, they take part of verse 12 OUT of
CONTEXT that says,
as by ONE man (again speaking of the one man Adam) SIN entered the
And then that falsely teach that this means that BECAUSE
of this ONE man Adam's ORIGINAL SIN that a SINFUL NATURE has entered
into every man's HEART. In others word's, this doctrine of original
sin teaches that each and every person who has been born sin Adam's
original sin has been BORN with a NATURE that is SINFUL form the very
moment that they are BORN. And that all of mankind since Adam has
been BORN not only with a NATURE that drives mankind to sin, but also
with this ORIGINAL SIN. To say this another way, the doctrine of
original sin teaches that EVEN a newborn baby is GUILTY before
Almighty God, BECAUSE they are literally BORN with this original sin
that was committed by this ONE man Adam.
However, this is NOT at all what this passage of
scripture teaches us. Romans 5:12 clearly and plainly states that
because of this one man Adam that SIN enter the WORLD and NOT that a
SINFUL NATURE entered into the HEART of every MAN, WOMAN and CHILD.
To ME, it is perfectly clear that this verse means that SIN or more
precisely the INFLUENCE of Satan to TEMPT mankind to SIN was allowed
to enter into the WORLD as a test to show to all the angels of God,
both the good angels who remained faithful to God and fallen angels
that rebelled against God that Almighty God had created them ALL
perfect from the day that they were created.
For a deeper understanding of what I mean by this please
read the study entitled "UNDERSTANDING WHY", which covers
all the scriptures that lead me to understand that Almighty God
created mankind a little LOWER than the ANGELS in order to PROVE to
his former creation the ANGELS that he did NOT create them with a
NATURE to SIN and REBEL against him, but rather he created ALL his
angels PERFECT in every way from the day that they were created.
After you read this study of "UNDERSTANDING WHY" you will
know WHY Almighty God has ALLOWED many things that are EVIL to remain
in the earth and why bad or evil things happen to good people.
But for now let us continue with a close examination of
Romans 5:12 to see what this verse actually teaches in the light of
the whole word of God.

and so DEATH
upon all men,(WHY?
Why id DEATH pass upon ALL of mankind?)

tempts mankind to SIN that had entered into the WORLD which produces
DEATH and NOT a SINFUL NATURE that has entered into the HEART of
every man woman and child at BIRTH, because of this disobedience of

that BECAUSE all of mankind has SINNED that the penalty of DEATH has

upon all men,(WHY?
Why id DEATH pass upon ALL of mankind?)
because that all of mankind have INHERITED a SINFUL NATURE, but
rather that all of mankind have SINNED at one time or other in their
AND SO or so then, that is to say, therefore it is for
this very reason of SIN that the penalty of DEATH has PASSED upon ALL
of mankind, BECAUSE of this very reason that at one time of another
ALL of mankind has SINNED. Now when the Bible speaks of death it can
mean a natural death and it can mean a spiritual death, which is a
separation from God because of SIN. In other words, because all men
have SINNED at one time or another in their life, then BECAUSE of
their SIN which they have committed they are now SPIRITUALLY
SEPARATED from Almighty God. Please read Isaiah 59:1,2 which clearly
teaches us that God is willing and able to hear our prayers, but
because of the SIN which we ourselves have committed we are SEPARATED
"Behold, the LORD'S hand
is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it
you and your God,
have hid his face from you, that he will not hear."
Please notice that the word of God does NOT say that
because of the ORIGINAL SIN of that ONE man Adam that you are
SEPARATED from God, but rather plainly states that because of YOU
sins you are separated form God. It is clearly NOT God's hand that is
shortened that he cannot save you. Nor is it God's ear that is dull
so that he cannot hear your prayer. In other words, you can TURN from
your sin at any time and call upon God and he will HEAR your prayer
and SAVE you.
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord
that Almighty God has ORDAINED it to be a CHOICE before all of
mankind to CHOOSE for yourself WHOM you will serve and obey, whether
it be you choose to OBEY that voice of temptation from Satan to SIN
and therefore bring the penalty of DEATH upon YOURSELF by your OWN
doing, OR whether it be that YOU YOURSELF make the CHOICE to OBEY
God's voice and TURN from your sinning and trust in God's grace to
overcome the temptation to sin in your life. Please read Deuteronomy
30:19, which teaches us that Almighty God has ordained or has set
before us LIFE or DEATH, but it is up to US to CHOOSE. God desires us
to choose LIFE, but none the less it is OUR OWN choice to make.
heaven and earth to
RECORD this day against you,

SET before YOU life and death, blessing and cursing:

that both you and your seed may live:"
context of this passage of scripture is all about TURNING from SIN
and OBEYING the commandments of Almighty God in order that we may
LIVE. You see the word live here means that you will NOT be SEPARATED
from God as long as you OBEY what he says in his word. But yet
according to the FALSE doctrine of original sin and the FALSE
doctrine of TOTAL DEPRAVITY all of mankind is SEPARATED from Almighty
God the very moment that they are BORN, because they are BORN as
the whole word of God clearly teaches us that the SINS of the father
are NOT passed upon the sons and daughters. In other words, the
original SIN of our forefather Adam is NOT PASSED upon us as many of
us have been FALSELY taught. Please read Deuteronomy 24:16, which
teaches us that each individual will receive the wages of DEATH for
his or her OWN sin, and that the SIN of the father is NOT passed upon
the son or daughter.
"The fathers shall NOT
be put to death for the children, neither
shall the children be put to death for the fathers:
every man shall
be put to death for his OWN sin."
So how can anyone teach that ALL of mankind INHERITED
this so called ORIGINAL SIN from of forefather Adam?
No! A thousand times NO! Can you not see my dear
brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ that you did NOT
INHERIT the original sin of Adam your forefather, NOR did you INHERIT
a SINFUL NATURE that makes you SIN. Please read Ezekiel 18:20,21,
which clearly teaches us that each man and woman shall bear the
penalty of death for their OWN sins which they themselves have
committed and that NO man will so called INHERIT the penalty of death
because of the sin of the father.
soul that SINS, it shall die. The
son shall NOT bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the
father bear the iniquity of the son:
the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the
wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
21. But if the wicked will
TURN from all his sins that he has committed, and keep all my
statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely
live, he shall not die,"
Now some of you may be thinking, "Well what about
we re we read in God's word in Exodus 20:5, which plainly states that
God shall VISIT the INIQUITIES of the FATHER upon the CHILDREN to the
second and third generations".
shalt not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD
your God am a jealous God, VISITING the iniquity (or
children unto the third and fourth generation
of them that hate me;"
those who try and use verses of scriptures such as this one have NOT
considered the CONTEXT from which they are taken. Please notice that
this verse PLAINLY states that God will visit the iniquity or sin of
the father upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of
THEM or those children who HATE God.
You see, if you keep this verse in the CONTEXT of where it is found
and read the very next verse you will clearly see that those who use
such verses are trying to make them say something that they are NOT
truly saying. Please read Exodus 20:6.
thousands of THEM that LOVE me, and keep my commandments."
In other words, IF and ONLY IF the children of the
father who sinned against God do NOT consider the ways of their
father and HATE God like their father did by SINNING against God,
THEN and only then will Almighty God VISIT the iniquities of the
father upon the CHILDREN. However, the word of God goes on to say
that Almighty God with show MERCY to THOUSANDS of THEM, speaking of
the CHILDREN whose father had SINNED against God, BECAUSE they did
NOT continue in HATE, but rather LOVED God by KEEPING his
Some still want to argue that Romans 5:19 clearly says
that by Adam's sin ALL of mankind were MADE SINNERS before God.
as by ONE man's DISOBEDIENCE many were MADE sinners,
so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous."
Well if one is to DEMAND that this verse means that the
SIN of this ONE man Adam is AUTOMATICALLY PASSED upon ALL of mankind
and that no man has any say in the matter, then one must without fail
also DEMAND that the second half of this very SAME verse of scripture
mean that the RIGHTEOUSNESS of the ONE man Jesus Christ is
AUTOMATICALLY PASSED upon ALL of mankind without any man having any
say in the matter. This of course would mean that ALL of mankind will
be saved, which the WHOLE word of Almighty God CLEARLY does NOT
teach. This FALSE teaching that ALL of mankind will be saved is
called "Universalism", which I will address in another
study, but for now I just wanted to make the point that we must be
CONSISTENT when we INTERPRET what a particular scripture means.
Therefore those who teach the doctrine of original sin and the
doctrine of total depravity cannot demand that the first half must
without fail mean that the original SIN of Adam is automatically
INHERITED by ALL of mankind and therefore ALL of mankind are MADE
SINNERS, because of this INHERITED SIN of Adam and a SINFUL NATURE
that MAKES us SO TOTALLY DEPRAVED that we cannot and will not seek
God or make any attempt to turn from our sin UNTIL we are FIRST born
again or REGENERATED by the Holy Spirit.
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord
Jesus Christ that to DEMAND that because of Adam's sin that all of
mankind automatically INHERITS the penalty of DEATH, because as the
doctrines of original sin and total depravity teach that ALL of
mankind has INHERITED the sin of our forefather Adam is ALSO to
DEMAND that ALL of mankind therefore AUTOMATICALLY INHERITS the
RIGHTEOUSNESS of Jesus Christ.
No!. A thousand times NO! This is NOT what this verse is
teaching us. No man is AUTOMATICALLY MADE or FORCED to be a SINNER.
The TRUTH of the matter is that the WAGES of SIN, which is DEATH is
PASSED upon ALL men, BECAUSE all of mankind at one time or another
LISTENED and OBEYED the INFLUENCE of Satan's TEMPTATION and SINNED of
their OWN free CHOICE.
Well some of you may still have doubts about this matter
and may be saying, "Well what about Psalm 51:5, which clearly
says that be are BORN in SIN and that we are SINNERS from the very
moment we are BORN."
I was shaped in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me."
Now those that teach these FALSE doctrines of original
sin and total depravity INTERPRET this verse to mean that David was
teaching us that we are ALL formed in the WOMB with a SINFUL NATURE
and that the moment we are BORN we are therefore considered by
Almighty God to be SINNERS.
But is this TRULY what this verse is teaching us? To
truly understand what the WHOLE word of God teaches and to properly
INTERPRET the scriptures we must follow certain rules of
interpretation. One of these rules of interpretation is to keep the
verse in question in the CONTEXT of where it is found, Another rule
of interpretation is that we must consider what type or style or
writing the writer is using. For example the book of Psalms is
primarily written in a POETIC style of writing where not EVERY single
word of phrase is to be taken LITERALLY. In others words, David is
merely expressing his remorse to God for the SIN that he himself has
committed against God and is expounding on his feeling that it is as
if he was sinning against God from the time that he was born.
Let's read this verse in it's context first to get a
clearer picture of what is going on in David's life at this
particular time. Please read Psalm 51:1-13, which clearly teaches us
that NOT every single word and phrase can be INTERPRETED LITERALLY.
mercy upon me, O God, according to your loving kindness: according
unto the multitude of your tender mercies blot out MY transgressions
or the sins that I MYSELF have committed against you O God)
2. Wash me thoroughly from
mine iniquity, and cleanse me from MY sin.
MY transgressions: and MY sin is ever before me.
4. Against you, you only,
sinned, and done this evil in your sight: that you might be justified
when you speak, and be clear when you judge.
5. Behold, I was shaped in
iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. (now
to ME, it is clear that David is TAKING RESPONSIBILITY for his OWN sin
is verse 4 and is NOT BLAMING God for SHAPING him in iniquity and in
sin in verse 5 as some FALSELY teach)
6. Behold, you desire truth
in the inward parts: and in the hidden part you shalt make me to know
7. Purge me with hyssop, and
I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8. Make me to hear joy and
gladness; that the
BONES which you have broken may REJOICE.
are we to INTERPRET this verse LITERALLY and DEMAND that Almighty God
LITERALLY BROKE the BONES of David and that BONES in and of
themselves have the ability to REJOICE? NO, absolutely not! David is
simple using POETIC language and is EXPRESSING that it SEEMS as if
his bones have been broken. David is simple using poetic language to
describe how he FEELS in this verse the SAME way that David is
describing how he FEELS in verse 5 of this same Psalm.)
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10. Create in me a clean
heart, O God; and RENEW a right spirit within me.
11. Cast me not away from
your presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12. RESTORE unto me the joy
of your salvation; and uphold me with your free spirit.
13. Then will I TEACH
transgressors your ways; and sinners shall be converted unto you (so
then, clearly this verse is teaching us that SINNERS shall be
converted to righteousness simply by David TEACHING these sinners
about God and NOT that a TOTALLY DEPRAVED sinner must be born again
of REGENERATED by the Holy Spirit FIRST before they can UNDERSTAND
the word of God enough to be RESTORED to the joy of their
Another method that is
used to properly interpret the word of God is to compare scripture
with scripture. So then, let us compare this time in David's life
when he was expressing to God his deep remorse for sinning against
God and how it felt to David that he had been sinning against God
from the time he was born to another time in David's life where he is
PRAISING Almighty God of how he is fearfully and WONDERFULLY made.
Please read Psalm 139:13,14, which teaches us that David knew right
well that Almighty God covered him in his mothers womb and that he
was fearfully and wonderfully made or formed in his mother's womb.
you have possessed my reins: you (Almighty
covered me in my mother's womb.
14. I will praise you; for
I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvelous are your works; and THAT (speaking
of the FACT that mankind is FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY MADE, and THAT)
my soul KNOWS RIGHT WELL."
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord
Jesus Christ that these two verse spoken by the same man David seem
to be speaking directly OPPOSITE of each other particularly when one
DEMANDS that Psalm 51:5 be TRANSLATED as ALL of mankind being FORMED
or made in the womb with a SINFUL NATURE.
Another verse of scripture that is used by those that
teach this DOCTRINE of TOTAL DEPRAVITY or TOTAL INABILITY is Psalm
58:3, which SEEMS to say that all of mankind are SINNERS from the
moment they are BORN.
wicked are estranged from the womb: they GO ASTRAY as soon as they be
Those that teach the doctrines of original sin and total
depravity teach that this verse is saying that as SOON as a person is
born they start SINNING.
Well again we need to take under consideration that this
is POETIC language and is only SEEMS as if mankind begins sinning as
soon as they are born, because a newborn baby cannot speak as soon as
they are born, and it is certain that they cannot speak LIES as soon
as they are born. Also notice that this verse says that the WICKED go
astray, which teaches us that the children of the wicked LEARN and
mimic their parents at a very young age. And the third point I want
to make is the phrase "THEY GO ASTRAY", which emphatically
states that in order to GO ASTRAY one must FIRST be in RIGHTEOUSNESS
or in right standing with Almighty God BEFORE that person could GO
ASTRAY or go away from being righteous. Therefore ALL of mankind must
without fail be BORN in a righteous and innocent state before God and
NOT with a so called SINFUL NATURE that is so totally depraved that
they are totally unable to do good.
Another point that those who teach the doctrines of
original sin and total depravity is that they claim that the Bible
teaches that all of mankind is completely wicked CONTINUALLY by using
such scriptures as Genesis 6:5 which says,
GOD saw that the WICKEDNESS of man was GREAT in the earth, and that
imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil CONTINUALLY."
Again this verse is taken OUT of CONTEXT and is
incorrectly being applied to all of mankind throughout every
However, the context teaches us that God was speaking of
in the DAYS of NOAH that the mankind had corrupted themselves so much
that it repented God that he ever made man on the earth.
if it were true that ALL of mankind were BORN wicked, then how is it
that Noah was a RIGHTEOUS person who found grace in the eyes of God.
And how is it even possible for mankind to CORRUPT themselves if it
is true that they were BORN in a WICKED state and were therefore
WICKED already from birth or from the very moment that they were
born. You see, in order for something or someone to be CORRUPTED,
then that something or someone MUST without fail had to be in an
UNCORRUPTED state BEFORE it or they BECAME CORRUPTED. The very
meaning of this word corrupt or corrupted demand that mankind was
FIRST in an UNCORRUPTED or PERFECT state BEFORE they BECAME in this
state of being CORRUPTED.
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord
that to be BORN with a SINFUL NATURE would mean that it would be
against the NATURE in which God created us to be. Almighty God did
NOT create mankind to be SINNERS and CORRUPT in NATURE before him.
Please read Genesis 6:1-8, which clearly teaches us that NOT all of
mankind BECAME CORRUPTED before God, because Noah was found to be
PERFECT in his generations and therefore found GRACE in the eyes of
it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth,
and daughters were born unto them,
2. That the sons of God saw
the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of
all which they chose.
3. And the LORD said, My
spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh:
yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4. There were giants in the
earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came
in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the
same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5. And GOD saw that the
wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination
of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6. And it repented the LORD
that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7. And the LORD said, I will
destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man,
and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it
repents me that I have made them.
Noah found GRACE in the eyes of the LORD.
9. These are the generations
of Noah: Noah
was a JUST man and PERFECT in his generations, and Noah WALKED WITH
Then in Genesis 6:12 we read were mankind had CORRUPTED
HIS WAY upon the earth, which clearly teaches us that it was by man's
OWN CHOICE that each individual person made for themselves that
caused them to BECOME CORRUPT in the eyes of God, and NOT
God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for
all flesh had CORRUPTED HIS WAY upon the earth."
point that I would like to make is that because mankind had become so
wicked in the days of Noah that God decided that he would destroy man
and beast from they earth except for Noah and his family. Now if it
were true that ALL of mankind were BORN with a SINFUL NATURE and were
SO TOTALLY DEPRAVED that it was impossible for man to seek after God,
and it REPENTED and GRIEVED God for even making man upon the earth,
then WHY would Almighty God even try to start over with mankind
knowing that Noah and his family all had an EVIL SINFUL NATURE and
could in no way do that which is right before God. The TRUTH of the
matter is that Noah did NOT have and EVIL heart CONTINUALLY before
Almighty God, because the word of TRUTH clearly teaches us that Noah
was a JUST man the WALKED WITH God and who was PERFECT in his
generations and therefore found GRACE in the eyes of God.
Now the question has been raised, Does Noah being PERFECT mean that he lived a SINLESS life? Then the question was answered by the same one who asked the question, probably NOT, because Jesus is the ONLY one who lived a SINLESS life?
First of all I
agree that Jesus was the only man that lived WITHOUT SIN his ENTIRE
life, to this fact there is no doubt. But does this mean NO man
EXCEPT Jesus can be PERFECT?
Next we all need to be on the SAME page, so to speak, and come to a
common understanding of what the word PERFECT means in the Bible.So then, what does the Bible have to say about being PERFECT. First of all let us take a look at the BIBLICAL definition of this word "PERFECT" from the Strong's exhaustive concordance.
Genesis 6 the word "PERFECT" is the Hebrew word "TAMIN"
and means without defect, blameless, without blemish, upright,
without spot and undefiled.
know that in the New Testament that being without spot and without
blemish is speaking of being without SIN. So the question is, was Noah
being PERFECT mean that Noah was WITHOUT SIN? YES, or God would not has said so. Keep in mind the DEFINITION of the word PERFECT.
does God saying that Noah was PERFECT or WITHOUT SIN mean without a
doubt that Noah lived his ENTIRE LIFE without every committing even
ONE SINGLE sin. Absolutely NOT! Noah may have lived his entire life without sin up to this point if time, but after the flood Noah got DRUNK. So then, is getting drunk a SIN. For ME, getting drunk is a sin.The Bible clearly teaches NOT to be DRUNK with wine, and yet does NOT forbid the drinking of wine. Another study in and of itself, Perhaps later. .
So then, let
me ask you a question, When you came to the Lord and repented of all
your sins and asked God to forgive you of your sins and your were
made a new creature in in Christ Jesus did you not at that point in time become the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God? So then, were YOU PERFECT in
that very moment? Absolutely YES! Of course you were made PERFECT at the moment you repented and confessed you sins. You were at that moment in time PERFECT and WITHOUT SIN in your life. You see, every time you
sin you are no longer without spot or blemish, but EVERY time you
repent and CONFESS your sins God is FAITHFUL and just to FORGIVE you
of your sins and in HIS EYES YOU ARE PERFECT. The working of God in you is to make you PERFECT, that is to say, God commands us to be PERFECT EVEN as he is PERFECT. Is God WITHOUT SIN? Absolutely! So then, be WITHOUT SIN EVEN as God is WITHOUT SIN. Does this mean you will NEVER sin again in this life. Probably not, but this does NOT mean that you have to give up a confess yourself to be a SINNER. NO! A thousand times NO! You are a NEW creature CREATED unto GOOD WORKS, sin has NO MORE DOMINION over YOU. For a deeper understand on being PERFECT please read the study "HOW TO LIVE FREE FROM SIN!", but for now let us continue this study on the FALSE teaching of original sin and all of mankind INHERITING a so called sinful NATURE.
Another question was asked, If we don not have a sinful NATURE, the WHY do we SIN? A very good question indeed.
The thing that I want to point out is that if we as Christians continually place the BLAME on a so called SINFUL NATURE that we supposedly inherited fro Adam, then the Devil will continue to overcome you time and time again. And you will be like Paul and believe you are a wretched creature that is DESTINED to SIN. What some preachers do not teach you is that Paul did NOT STOP there in chapter 7 of Romans, but went on to write Romans chapter 8, where we are given he ANSWER to OVER COMING sin, which is to OBEY the leading of the Holy Spirit ONE step at a time.
So then, to ME, after studying this subject of original sin, I have clearly come to see that there are TWO
INFLUENCES in the world. God of course influences the lives of
mankind through his written word, through prophets, teachers, pastors
fellow brothers and sisters, his Holy Spirit, and even his creation.
The other INFLUENCE is the god of this world, Satan, the Devil. Now
NEITHER INFLUENCE FORCES anyone to do GOOD, NOR to do EVIL.
both of these INFLUENCES work through the mind by bringing thoughts
to a person. The more you think about sometime the more you will be
INFLUENCE by your thinking.
Christians believe that even if you THINK a bad thought, then you
have SINNED. This is simple NOT true. They try and use the words of
Jesus that LOOKING upon another woman to lust after her in your heart
you have committed adultery ALREADY in you heart. But if this is
taken to mean every THOUGHT then HOW could Jesus have lived a SINLESS
life, because the Bible says that Jesus was TEMPTED in ALL points as
WE ARE tempted.
for me personally the ONLY WAY that I have ever been TEMPTED in in
THOUGHT. In other words, these THOUGHTS come to my mind that TEMPT me
to do that which I know is wrong. The TRUTH of the matter is the
THOUGHTS that come into your mind INITIALLY to do GOOD are from God
and the THOUGHTS that come into your mind INITIALLY to do EVIL are
from Satan. These INITIAL thoughts do not become YOUR thoughts
until you CONTINUE to think upon them and RECEIVE them. And even then
these thoughts do not become SIN until they CONTROL your being. When
a man LUSTS after a woman or a woman LUSTS after a man there is a
PHYSICAL change in the human body and if left unchecked will lead to
SIN. This is what Jesus meant when he said he who LUST after another
woman which begins with a look or a thought that is left unchecked.
You see, it is EASIER to NOT SIN if you STOP that thought process
when it FIRST begins. This is what Jesus is teaching us.
see IF a mere THOUGHT is SIN then there is NO WAY that Jesus was ever
TEMPTED, because TEMPTATION is THOUGHTS. So IF thoughts are SIN, then
JESUS did NOT live WITHOUT SIN, because Jesus was TEMPTED. Do you see
what I am saying. It it only when we CONTINUE to thinks on these
thoughts that we know are wrong that we become in danger of following
through with this initial thought.
has discovered that REPEATED thoughts create a pathway through the
mind, and the more we THINK on these same thoughts this pathway
becomes faster and faster like a dirt foot path becoming and
expressway. This is why addictions are so hard to overcome. One has
to RENEW their MIND with NEW THOUGHTS. Think of THESE THINGS. Hide
God's word in our heart so that we will NOT SIN against him.
agree that a person NATURE can BECOME corrupt and SINFUL, but I
definitely do NOT believe that every single human being ever born
automatically INHERITS a sinful NATURE at BIRTH. IF this were true
then EVERY baby who dies would go to hell because babies do not have
to capacity to comprehend the gospel to accept Jesus as their savior
and be saved.
is definitely an EVIL INFLUENCE in the world which INFLUENCES mankind
to SIN, but I do NOT believe it is our OWN NATURE that we are BORN
with. Anyone's nature can be CORRUPTED by this evil INFLUENCE if they
continue to LISTEN to it's LIES and DECEPTIONS.
Now again the
DANGER of believing that you have a sinful NATURE is that the Devil
will LIE to you that you can NEVER stop sinning. I have heard
testimonies of some Calvinist who testify that they sin hundreds of
times every day and I have to ask my self the question have they ever
truly committed themselves to God.
mean for ME, personally the moment I gave my life to Jesus I
developed a hatred for sin, The things I used to do I no longer
wanted to do. And ONE at a time God worked IN me to overcome each
might say, well then did you not have a sin NATURE because you used
to WANT to sin. NO, because I sat down I thought back as to HOW I got
were I was and it was a gradually over time journey. Little by little
I started doing things that a small still voice inside of me kept
saying NO, don't listen to that voice telling you to do those things,
you know that they are wrong. But this other voice kept hounding me
over and over until I gave into it.
you can believe that we are born with a sinful NATURE, but IF this is
true then Adam and Eve were CREATED with a sinful NATURE, because
they also LISTENED to this lying and deceiving voice that kept
telling them to do that which the KNEW was against what God had
and keep in mind that the doctrines of original sin and total
depravity teach that ALL of mankind from Adam to this very day are
ALL BORN with a wicked and SINFUL NATURE and and are SO TOTALLY
DEPRAVED that NO man could possible do that which is right in the
eyes of God. In other words, ALL of mankind from Adam to this very
day are SINNERS from the moment they are BORN.
you not see my dear brothers and sisters in the Lord that these
doctrines are FALSE teaching that do NOT agree with what the WHOLE
word of Almighty God teaches us? Can you not see that IF these
doctrines were true, then there would be absolutely not even ONE
RIGHTEOUS person from Adam to Jesus, because EVERY person would have
been BORN with this so called "WICKED and SINFUL NATURE"
that caused them to SIN CONTINUALLY before God.
the TRUTH of the matter is that the word of TRUTH teaches us that
there were in fact RIGHTEOUS men before God from Adam to Jesus. The
Holy Bible teaches us that ABEL was a RIGHTEOUS man before God.
Please read Matthew 23:35, where Jesus himself teaches us that there
were many RIGHTEOUS men from ABEL in the days of Adam to ZACHARIAS
in the days of Jesus.
"That upon you may come
all the RIGHTEOUS blood shed upon the earth, FROM
the blood of RIGHTEOUS Abel UNTO the blood of Zacharias
son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar."
also read in Hebrews chapter 11 not only about Abel being righteous
before God, but about many other RIGHTEOUS men, such as Enoch, Noah,
Abraham, Moses, Joseph and many others. But for now I want to focus
upon Cain and Abel, where one made the CHOICE to obey God and do that
which was right or RIGHTEOUS before God and the other one made the
CHOICE NOT to OBEY God and OVERCOME the enemies temptation to murder
his brother. First we will read Hebrews 11:4, then we will go back to
Genesis chapter 3.
faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by
which he obtained witness that he was RIGHTEOUS,
God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaks."
So then, here in this verse we can plainly see that BY
the WORKS that Abel did he obtained the witness that he was RIGHTEOUS
before God. Whereas in Genesis 4:3-8 we see that Cain did NOT DO that
righteous WORK that his brother Abel did and therefore God was NOT
pleased with Cains WORK or deed of sacrifice that he made.
in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of
the ground an offering unto the LORD.
4. And Abel, he also brought
of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD
had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
5. But unto Cain and to his
offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his
6. And the LORD said unto
Cain, Why are you wroth ? and why is your countenance fallen ?
7. If you DO WELL
(In other words, if you DO that which is RIGHT as your brother Abel
shall you not be ACCEPTED? And if you do
not well, sin
lies at the door. And unto you shall be his desire, and YOU SHALL
RULE OVER him.
other words, Almighty God EXPECTED Cain to RULE OVER this TEMPTATION
to KILL his brother Abel out of jealously)
8. And Cain talked with Abel
his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that
Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him."
This passage of scripture alone should prove beyond any
shadow of a doubt for those seeking the TRUTH that mankind is NOT
BORN with a SINFUL NATURE and therefore are SO TOTALLY DEPRAVED that
they are thus rendered TOTALLY UNABLE to that which is RIGHT or
RIGHTEOUS before Almighty God UNTIL they are born again or
REGENERATED by the Holy Spirit as Calvinism and Reformed Theology
The WHOLE word of God clearly teaches us that Abel made
the CHOICE to do that which is RIGHT before God and Cain made the
CHOICE NOT to do that which is RIGHT before God and therefore was
brought under FURTHER TEMPTATION, which he was told DIRECTLY from
Almighty God the HE HIMSELF was to RULE OVER. To ME, this leaves no
doubt that mankind has always been given the CHOICE to WHOM we are
going top serve, whether we be OBEDIENT to God unto RIGHTEOUSNESS, or
whether we make the CHOICE to LISTEN to Satan's INFLUENCE to DISOBEY
God and serve SIN unto death.
I want you to read Genesis 4:7 from several different
translations so that you get the full impact of what Almighty God is
teaching us in his word of TRUTH. Here is this verse from the New
International Version (NIV).
YOU DO what is RIGHT, will you not be ACCEPTED? But if you DO NOT
what is RIGHT, sin is crouching at your door; it (speaking
of SIN or more precisely SATAN who has ENTERED into the world)
desires to have you, but
YOU must MASTER it.
YOU must be MASTER over SIN and Satan and NOT let Satan's temptation
master or overcome you)"
Again it it perfectly clear to ME that Almighty God is
WARNING Cain and us as well that we have a CHOICE in the matter and
IF we make the CHOICE to DO that which is RIGHT, then we will be
ACCEPTED of God, and if we make the CHOICE to simply LET the
INFLUENCE or TEMPTATION of Satan RULE over us, then we will SIN and
do that which is NOT right before God.
Can you not see that SIN or the INFLUENCE of Satan
entered into the world and then DEATH was PASSED upon men BY the
result of each individual man making the CHOICE to obey the INFLUENCE
of Satan and do that which is NOT right before God, and NOT that ALL
of mankind automatically INHERITED a so called SINFUL NATURE that
made it impossible for any man to do that which is RIGHT before God.
The TRUTH of the matter is DEATH was passed upon all men
BECAUSE all men at one time or another made a CHOICE to GIVE INTO the
INFLUENCE of Satan's TEMPTATION and SINNED. Please read Romans 5:12
one more time.
"Wherefore, as by one
man SIN entered into the WORLD, and death BY sin; and so DEATH passed
upon all men, (WHY?
Why does DEATH or SEPARATION from God come or pass upon all men?)
that ALL have SINNED:"
The REASON that death or spiritual separation from God
is passed upon ALL men is BECAUSE every single human being EXCEPT for
Jesus, the Son of Almighty God has made the CHOICE to give into the
INFLUENCE of Satan's temptation and SINNED of their OWN FREE WILL. No
where in the Bible do I my self find that ALL of mankind has
INHERITED a so called SINFUL NATURE that causes us to SIN.
The TRUTH of the matter is that what causes us to sin is
the INFLUENCE and DECEPTION of Satan. It it UNNATURAL for man to SIN.
Man does NOT have a NATURE to SIN. It is NOT NATURAL for man to SIN.
Therefore mankind does NOT have a SINFUL NATURE. let me PROVE this to
you once and for all time. Please read Romans 1:18-32, which PLAINLY
and CLEARLY teaches us that it is AGAINST or NATURE to SIN, therefore
PROVING that we are NOT BORN with a SINFUL NATURE as some FALSELY
"For the wrath of God is
revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of
men, who hold

they themselves CHOSE to have darkened),
to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:

full of envy,
haters of God,
32. Who KNOWING the judgment
of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not
only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
In other words, ALL these SINS mention here are the
result of being WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION and doing that which is
AGAINST our very NATURE to do. To ME, this passage of scripture
PROVES without a doubt that SIN is AGAINST the very NATURE in which
Almighty God created us and therefore proves that we are NOT BORN
with a SINFUL NATURE as some FALSELY teach.
some of you may say that I am trying to twist the scriptures to
include all sin as an UNNATURAL act of mankind and it is ONLY the SIN
of HOMOSEXUALITY that is AGAINST the NATURE of mankind to commit.
Well to ME, even if ONE sin is AGAINST the NATURE of mankind to
commit, then this would prove that mankind is not BORN will this so
called SINFUL NATURE, because God's word CLEARLY states that it is
UNNATURAL or against the very NATURE of man to lie with another man
and a woman to lie with another woman. And if we break just ONE point
of the law, then the WHOLE law is transgressed. The question still
needs to be asked, if Paul was ONLY speaking about the ONE SIN of
HOMOSEXUALITY, then WHY did Paul bother to list all the others sins
and say that those who do such things are WITHOUT NATURAL
The Bible teaches that out of the mouth of two or three
witnesses to let everything be established. So then, let us take a
close look at Romans 2:5-15, which teaches us that the GENTILES who
were considered SINNERS by the Jews KEPT the law of God by their
NATURE with which they were BORN.

of ALL of mankind, but more particularly here as being GENTILES, who
are BORN with a NATURE to do that which is RIGHT, because we ALL have
a CONSCIENCE that bears witness to us of right and wrong, THESE),
having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience
also bearing witness,
and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one
You see even though we ALL are BORN will a CONSCIENCE
that bear witness to our hearts that which is right or wrong, we also
have been the freedom to CHOOSE which INFLUENCE we are going to OBEY
and therefore we all at time make EXCUSES and try to REASON away the
INFLUENCE which we decide to follow or not follow.
My point is this, SOME of these GENTILES, who BY their
NATURE, made the CHOICE to OBEY the LAW of Almighty God and do that
which was RIGHT before God, without ever having been given the
WRITTEN COMMANDMENT of God which they could read, BECAUSE they and we
are ALL BORN with the NATURE to know what is right and what is wrong.
And it is our NATURE at first to follow that which is RIGHT. However,
because SIN or more precisely because the INFLUENCE of Satan, who
TEMPTS us to SIN has ENTERED into the world or was ALLOWED to remain
in the world, then ALL of mankind at one time or another has either
been DECEIVED by the deceitfulness of sin or has simply GIVEN INTO
the INFLUENCE of Satan and has SINNED. Therefore DEATH has PASSED
upon ALL of mankind, BECAUSE ALL men have SINNED by their OWN FREE
WILL at one time or another.
NO man or
BORN with a
Now some of you may still not be convince of this
Biblical TRUTH and DEMAND that the Bible clearly teaches that there
is NOT ONE who is RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE!
Well lets us take a CLOSER look at what the WHOLE word
of Almighty God has to say about these verses that SEEM to say that
there is NOT ONE RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE. Please read Romans 3:9, which
teaches us that we are ALL under SIN, both Jew and Gentile.
then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before
PROVED both Jews and Gentiles, that they are ALL
Now why Paul goes on in the following verses taking them
OUT of CONTEXT to show further that ALL of mankind is UNDER SIN I
have no clue. I myself see the NEW TESTAMENT as letters and teachings
that were written by men who were indeed inspired by God to write
them, but not necessarily every single word being a THUS SAYS THE
LORD. What I mean by this is that there are places in the New
Testament when Paul comes right out and plainly states that he is
speaking as a MAN, which to ME, says that not every single word Paul
says is inspired of God. In other words, I personally believe that at
time Paul puts in his own opinion. There are preachers today that
take verses OUT of CONTEXT to MAKE a POINT and I personally believe
that this is what Paul is doing here in Romans 3:9-18 to MAKE the
POINT that ALL HAVE SINNED and therefore ALL of mankind have FALLEN
SHORT of the glory of Almighty God and THUS NEEDS a SAVIOR.
then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before
proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are ALL
Paul goes on to try and FURTHER prove this truth, which he already
said that he PROVED before. Anyway Paul goes on to say:)
10. As it is WRITTEN, There
is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE (so
then, WHERE is it WRITTEN that there is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE?
Let us read through the entire list of scriptures that Paul QUOTES
before we go to the Old Testament and read them in their CONTEXT):
11. There is NONE that
understands, there is NONE that seeks after God.
are ALL gone out of the way,
they are together become unprofitable; there is NONE that does good,
NO, NOT ONE.
13. Their throat is an open
sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of
asps is under their lips:
14. Whose mouth is full of

15. Their feet are swift to
16. Destruction and misery
are in their ways:
17. And the way of peace have
they not known:
18. There is no fear of God
before their eyes."
Now in verses 10, 11, and 12 Paul is quoting from Psalm
14, which clearly is NOT speaking about ALL of mankind, but RATHER is
speaking of or prophesying of the FOOL that says there is NO God is
the last days. Please read Psalm 14:1-5, which says,
FOOL has said in HIS heart, There is NO God. THEY (speaking
of those who FOOLISHLY say in THEIR heart that there is NO God. THEY)
THEY have done abominable works, there is NONE

the FOOL that says there is NO God. There is NONE of THEM)

2. The LORD looked down from
heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did
understand, and seek God. (a
prophecy of the last days when the wickedness is come to full once

speaking of the FOOL who says there is NO God in the last days, THEY)
are all gone
THEY are all together BECOME
filthy: there is NONE (of
THEM, again the understood subject referring to the FOOLS in the last
days that says there is NO God. There is NONE of THEM)

come to completion, which is the understood subject throughout this

people) as THEY
eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
5. There were THEY (speaking
of he FOOL in the last days that says in his heart that there is NO
God and who work iniquity including the killing of the RIGHTEOUS
people of God. It is THEY, the FOOL that shall be)

Why shall these FOOLS who say that there is NO God who persecute the
people of God FEAR in the last days when Jesus comes to execute the
WRATH of Almighty God?) FOR

of the RIGHTEOUS.(which
again PROVES that Paul took these verse OUT of CONTEXT either
intentionally of unintentionally, but none the less by NOT keeping
them IN the CONTEXT they have led many to be MISLED into believing
that Paul was speaking of ALL of mankind when he quoted Psalm 14
saying that there is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE)"
The TRUTH of the matter none of these verse Paul quoted
in Romans 3:12-18 are speaking of ALL of mankind as many FALSELY
teach, but RATHER they are all speaking of the WICKED at the end of
the age when God shall judge the wicked, because NONE of the WICKED
will seek after God, and NONE of the WICKED will TURN from THEIR
wicked way. In other words, the FULNESS of the Gentiles will have
come in and be completed when God will look upon the children of men
and see for himself that NONE of the WICKED will SEEK after God no
matter how much the gospel is preached. Please read Psalm 14:7, the
last verse in this short chapter from the Wycliffe translation that
prophesies of the last days WHEN the DELIVERER shall come out of Zion
to set Israel free from the nations that are warring against her at
the battle of Armageddon.

victory/Who shall give salvation, or deliverance, to Israel out of
Zion? WHEN the Lord has RETURNED the prosperity of his people, then
Jacob shall rejoice; yea, Israel shall be glad.)"
Now the first part of verse 13 in Romans chapter 3 Paul
is quoting from Psalm 5. Lets us read the first part of Romans 3:13
again before we read Psalm 5:9 in it entire CONTEXT.

So then. WHO is the THEIR and the THEY speaking of here?
Is the THEY and the THEIR referring to ALL of mankind as many of us
have be TAUGHT? Well let us see by taking a CLOSE look at Psalm 5:9,
which is the verse that Paul is quoting, but let us examine it in
it's CONTEXT by reading the entire Psalm 5:1-12, which CLEARLY and
PLAINLY teaches us that Paul is quoting about the LAST DAYS and that
the are RIGHTEOUS people of God on the earth in these last days who
are PRAYING this Psalm about the WICKED to be DESTROYED, because
THEY, the WICKED are killing the RIGHTEOUS.

CLEARLY verse 9, which Paul is quoting in the first half
of Romans 3:13 is speaking of the WICKED in the LAST DAYS, when the
RIGHTEOUS are praying to God to DESTROY THEM, because there is NONE
of the WICKED that are SEEKING after God, NO, NOT ONE.
In the last half of verse 13 Paul is quoting from Psalm
140:3. Again let us read the last half of Romans 3:13 before we read
the entire CONTEXT of Psalm 140:3, which again is NOT speaking of ALL
of mankind as many of us have been FALSELY taught.
"...the poison of asps

Now here is Psalm 140:3 left in it's ENTIRE CONTEXT,

Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord
Jesus Christ that Paul has either intentionally or unintentionally
taken these verse OUT of their CONTEXT when he quoted them in Romans
3:12-18 and thereby many have been MISLED into believing that Paul
was speaking about ALL of mankind when he said that there are NONE
righteous, NO, NOT ONE who SEEKS after God. Again I have no clue as
to WHY Paul took all these verse OUT of their CONTEXT. I can only
suppose that he was trying to make a point the ALL of mankind had
SINNED at one time of the other and therefore, ALL of mankind had
fallen short of the glory of God and were considered to be UNDER SIN,
and THEREFORE were in NEED of a SAVIOR.
In Romans 3:14 Paul is quoting Psalm 10:7. Lets us read
Romans 3:14, which says,
"Whose mouth is full of
cursing and bitterness:"
Now WHOSE mouth is this verse
speaking of that is full of cursing and bitterness? Is it the mouth
of every single person on the earth or ALL of mankind as many of us
have been taught? Or is it the mouth of ONLY the WICKED in the LAST
DAYS that Psalm 10:7 is speaking about? Let us keep this verse in
it's CONTEXT by reading the entire Psalm 10:1-18, which says,
stand you afar off, O LORD? why hide you yourself in TIMES of TROUBLE
of the LAST DAYS right before Jesus comes to execute the WRATH of
Almighty God upon the WICKED)?

Testament has been taken OUT of CONTEXT and either intentionally or
unintentionally has been quoted together in such a way as to lead one
to believe that he is speaking of ALL of mankind when he says that
NONE are RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE, and NONE SEEK after God.
But the TRUTH of the matter is that these verse when
LEFT in the CONTEXT are CLEARLY speaking of ONLY the WICKED in the
LAST DAYS that are the ones who are NOT seeking God and that the
wickedness of the wicked has gotten so bad that there will be NONE of
these WICKED in the last days that will TURN from their wickedness,
NO, NOT ONE. In other words, the wickedness has come to FULL, when
NONE of the WICKED shall become RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE.
In Romans 3:15 Paul is quoting Proverbs 1:16. Again let
us read Romans 3:15, before we read where Paul quoted from in the old
feet are swift to shed blood:
Again whose are the THEIR feet that are swift to shed
blood? Is it the feet of ALL of mankind that many of us have been
taught? Or is it the feet of the WICKED ONLY? Let us read the
Proverbs 1:10-16, which is the CONTEXT of Romans 3:15.

So AGAIN the THEIR here in Romans 3:15 is referring to
ONLY the WICKED and NOT to ALL of mankind as many of us have FALSELY
been taught by the doctrines of ORIGINAL SIN and TOTAL DEPRAVITY.
Clearly the CONTEXT of Romans 3:12-18 reveals to us the TRUTH that
there are many RIGHTEOUS ones in the earth at the same time that the
WICKED have become so wicked that NONE of the WICKED, NO, NOT ONE
SEEK after God in the LAST DAYS.
In Romans 3:16,17 Paul is quoting Isaiah 59:7,8. Here is
what Romans 3:16,17 says,
and misery are in THEIR
And the way of peace have THEY
Now when I read Isaiah 59 I see again two groups of
people, the WICKED and the RIGHTEOUS. But I also see ISRAEL as being
in transgression against God and being heavily persecuted, but yet
they do not cry out to God for judgment, but rather take matters into
their own hands while all the while God is wanting them to call upon
I also see in verse 15 that those who DEPART from
WICKEDNESS make themselves a TARGET or PREY for the wicked to cut
them down. The more I study about ISLAM and the LAST DAYS I am seeing

In Romans 3:18 Paul is quoting Psalm 36:1. First read
Romans verse 18, which says,

Now please read Psalm 36:1 in it's ENTIRE CONTEXT, which
again is prophesying of the LAST DAYS, when the wickedness of the
WICKED has come to full and the TIME of JUDGMENT has come. To ME,
there is NO DOUBT that the THEIR throughout Romans 3:12-18 is
speaking of ONLY the WICKED and NOT ALL of mankind as many of us have
FALSE been taught by the FALSE doctrines of ORIGINAL SIN and TOTAL
DEPRAVITY. Here is Psalm 36:1-12, which clearly teaches us that the

WICKED, the FOOL that says in his heart that there is NO God.

of ONLY those CHILDREN of MEN in TRUST is the Lord and who call upon

Now I have CLEARLY and PLAINLY shown that in EVERY single
verse that Paul QUOTED from the Old Testament was TAKEN OUT of
CONTEXT and made to say something that the CONTEXT clearly does NOT
say or teach, which consequently has lead many to FALSELY believe
that Paul was teaching that ALL of mankind is WICKED and that there
is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE who SEEKS after God.
HOWEVER, the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of God CLEARLY and
PLAINLY reveals that these verses in Romans 3:12-18 are speaking of
ONLY the WICKED in the LAST DAYS who are NOT SEEKING after God. And
NONE of the WICKED, NO, NOT ONE WICKED person in the LAST DAYS will
SEEK after God, NO, NOT ONE.
UNTIL Jesus comes in the clouds of glory and power and
then a REMNANT of the nations will CALL upon the Lord and be saved
ALIVE to go into the 1000 year reign of Jesus in their MORTAL bodies
to be taught of the Lord. For a deep understanding of this truth
please read the study entitled "THE SECOND COMING of JESUS",
but for now let us continue with this study in God word EXPOSING the
FALSE teaching of Calvinism by closely examining the doctrines of
Reformed Theology in the LIGHT of the WHOLE word of God.
Still there may be some who believe and teach the
doctrine of original sin and the doctrine of total depravity that
will say that I am the one who is twisting the scriptures, because
the Bible clearly says that the HEART of MAN is DESPERITLY WICKED.
Then they will quote Jeremiah 17:9 which says,
HEART is DECEITFUL above all things, and DESPERATELY WICKED: who can
again WHOSE heart is deceitful above all things? And WHOSE heart is
desperately wicked? Is it the heart of EVERY single human being ever
born in that every single human being is BORN with a desperately
wicked heart that is deceitful above all things.
is it ONLY the heart of those who have BECOME WICKED? In others
words, is the CONTEXT of this verse speaking about EVERY heart of ALL
of mankind, or is the TRUE meaning of this verse LEFT in it's CONTEXT
speaking about the WICKED HEART that is DECEITFUL above all things,
and the HEART that has BECOME WICKED is now become DESPERATELY WICKED
that WHO can truly KNOW it?
let us again read the CONTEXT to find out. Please read Jeremiah 17:1,
5-10 where in verse 1 we read how the SIN of Judah is written upon
the table of THEIR heart.
"1. The SIN
of Judah (and not the
wicked sinful nature of ALL of mankind) is written with a
pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the
table of THEIR heart, and upon the horns of your
Then God warns them that if the continue in their sin
that he will cut them off from the land, because THEIR heart has
DEPARTED from the Lord. Now read verse 5 through 10.
"Thus says the LORD;
Cursed be the man that trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm,
and WHOSE HEART DEPARTS from the LORD.(So
then, it is the HEART that trusts in MAN and DEPARTS from the Lord
whose heart is DECEITFUL and DESPERATELY WICKED)
6. For HE (the
one who DEPARTS from the Lord) shall be like the heath in
the desert, and shall not see when good comes; but shall inhabit the
parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
(then in the next two verses the
Lord goes on to CONTRASTS the difference between the HEART that is
DECEITFUL and DESPERATELY WICKED, BECAUSE that heart has DEPARTED
from the Lord with the HEART that TRUSTS in the Lord)
7. Blessed is the man that
trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
8. For he shall be as a
tree planted by the waters, and that spreads out her roots by the
river, and shall not see when heat comes, but her leaf shall be
green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall
cease from yielding fruit.(then
is the next verse God goes back to speaking about the HEART that has
DEPARTED from the Lord and trust in MAN)
9. The HEART (speaking
of ONLY the HEART that DEPARTS from the Lord) is DECEITFUL
above all things, and DESPERATELY WICKED: who can know it? (then
in the next verse we learn that there are obviously DIFFERENT kinds
of HEARTS or else WHY would God even bother to SEARCH the HEART to
find out which KIND of HEART a person has?)
10. I the LORD search
the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man
according to his WAYS, and according to the fruit of his
Now IF it were true that verse 9 means EVERY HEART of
ALL of mankind is DECEITFUL and DESPERATELY WICKED as some FALSELY
teach, then this would mean that ALL of mankind would be JUDGED
ACCORDING to his EVIL WICKED WAYS, because the FRUIT of a WICKED EVIL
heart can only be EVIL. Jesus clearly and plainly teaches us this
truth in the gospels.
Can you not see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord
Jesus Christ that Jeremiah 17:9 is speaking of ONLY the HEART of
those who DEPART from the Lord whose heart is DECEITFUL and
DESPERATELY WICKED. Also please notice that EVEN this person who
DEPARTS from the Lord whose heart BECAME WICKED was NOT BORN with a
WICKED SINFUL NATURE that is SO TOTALLY DEPRAVED that it is rendered
TOTALLY UNABLE to turn to God without FIRST being REGENERATED or born
again of the Holy Spirit as some FALSELY teach, because the context
of this verse clearly teaches us that these hearts DEPARTED from the
Calvinism clearly teaches that ALL of the ELECT will be
saved without fail and that NONE of the ELECT can LOSE their
salvation. Calvinism also teaches that NO NON ELECT person will be
drawn to God to be saved and that NO UNREGENERATED person can come to
the Lord. Therefore according to Calvinism it can be ONLY the ELECT
one who DEPARTS from the Lord whose heart BECOMES DECEITFUL and
DESPERATELY WICKED, but yet according to Calvinism NO ELECT one can
ever possibly DEPART from the Lord. Every Calvinist that I have
talked to will argue that those who DEPART from the Lord were NEVER
truly saved. Calvinism totally CONTRADICTS itself, so do NOT TRUST in
MAN that DEPARTS from the TRUTH of the WHOLE word of Almighty God.
Think it THROUGH for YOURSELF.
With that being said let us go to the gospels and see
what our Lord Jesus the Christ said about the TWO DIFFERENT kinds of
HEARTS, the GOOD heart and the EVIL heart, and HOW the HEART BECOMES
EVIL. Please read Luke 6:43-49, which says,
"For a GOOD tree brings
NOT forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good
44. For EVERY tree is KNOWN
by his OWN fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a
bramble bush gather they grapes.
45. A good man out of
the GOOD TREASURE of his heart brings forth that which is
GOOD; and an evil man out of the EVIL TREASURE of his heart
brings forth that which is evil: for of the ABUNDANCE
of the heart his mouth speaks.
46. And WHY call you me,
Lord, Lord, and DO NOT the things which I say?
47. Whosoever comes to me,
and hears my sayings, and DOES them, I will show you to whom he is
48. HE (speaking
of ONLY the one who obeys the teaching of Jesus) is like a
man which built an house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a
rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that
house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
49. BUT he that hears, and
does NOT, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon
the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and
immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great."
In other words, is is up to US to make the TREASURE in
our heart GOOD in ABUNDANCE so that we become DOERS of the word and
NOT just HEARERS ONLY whereby we DECEIVE our own self.
Now please read Matthew 12:33-37 where Jesus warns us to
either make the tree GOOD and the FRUIT GOOD, or else make the tree
CORRUPT and the FRUIT CORRUPT, because the one who is LUKEWARM Jesus
will spew out of his mouth when he comes.
"Either make the tree
good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his
fruit corrupt: for the tree is KNOWN by his fruit.
34. O generation of vipers,
how can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the
ABUNDANCE of the heart the mouth speaks.
35. A good man out of the
GOOD TREASURE of the heart brings forth GOOD things: and an evil man
out of the EVIL TREASURE brings forth EVIL things.
36. But I say unto you, That
every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account
thereof in the day of judgment.
37. For by your words
you shalt be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned."
My point is this, when a born again Christian
continually SPEAKS out of his or her mouth that they are SINNERS,
then that is what will be BROUGHT FORTH. If you are TIRED of giving
in to temptations then start changing the TREASURE of your HEART to
that which is GOOD until it becomes the ABUNDANCE of your heart and
you begin to speak God's word of TRUTH that you are a NEW CREATION
and that the OLD treasure of your heart which BECAME EVIL has PASSED
away and is DEAD to you.
Begin reading and meditating on the word of God that
teaches you that you are MORE than a conqueror THROUGH Jesus Christ
and the anointing that is in you. For a deeper understand of how you
can live free from sin please read the study called "HOW TO LIVE
FREE FROM SIN" and the study entitled "THE POWER OF OUR
WORDS". But for now let us continue this study in God's word to
expose the lies of these FALSE doctrines of original sin and total
Now even after all this clear and plain evidence from
God's word that proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that mankind did
NOT INHERIT a SINFUL NATURE because of the sin of Adam there are some
than want to cling to that which they have been taught by these FALSE
man made doctrines of original sin and total depravity based upon Job
15:14, which says,
"What is MAN, that he
should be CLEAN? And he which is BORN of a woman, that he should be
As I have said many times, ANY verse when taken OUT of
CONTEXT and viewed ALONE and APART from the WHOLE word of God may
SEEM to be saying something that the whole word of God does NOT
teach. So then, let us keep this verse in perspective to the WHOLE
word of God and see what the TRUTH of the matter truly is.
Now if you read the entire context beginning with Job
15:1 you will see that a MAN named Eliphaz was MOCKING Job, who was
maintaining that he himself was a RIGHTEOUS man before God. Now in
Job 13:15 we see that Job is DECLARING to Eliphaz and his friends
that he would MAINTAIN his WAYS. Then in Job 12:4 we see that the
WAYS of Job were UPRIGHT or RIGHTEOUS before God.
"I am as one MOCKED of
his neighbor, who CALLS upon God, and he ANSWERS him: the JUST
UPRIGHT MAN is laughed to scorn."
So then, now we have TWO different sides of a coin so to
speak. On one side we have a MAN named Eliphaz that says what is MAN
that he should be CLEAN and one BORN of a woman that he should be
RIGHTEOUS. And on the other side we have another man named Job whose
MAINTAINS that he is a JUST and UPRIGHT MAN before God.
Now WHO is right and who is wrong, because BOTH cannot
be right. Either ALL of mankind is BORN WICKED and SINFUL, OR ALL of
mankind is BORN INNOCENT and RIGHTEOUS before God. Both ways cannot
Well I suppose that you can have YOUR OPINION and I
suppose that I could have mine. But for ME, I would rather let the
WHOLE word of TRUTH, the Holy Bible speak for itself and teach us
which man is right by comparing scripture with scripture.
So then, let us go to the end of the book of Job and
read Job 42:7, where we see Almighty God HIMSELF speaking of this
SAME matter of the THINGS which this MAN Eliphaz has SPOKEN to Job.
it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the
LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My WRATH is kindled against YOU,
and against your two friends: (WHY?)
of ALL THREE of YOU, you AND your TWO friends) have
NOT spoken of me the thing that is RIGHT, as
my servant Job HAS."
then, this man Eliphaz did NOT speak that which is RIGHT before God,
when he SPOKE these words in Job 15:14.
is MAN that he should be CLEAN and one BORN of a woman that he should
Now if you are still not convince that Job was a
RIGHTEOUS and UPRIGHT man before Almighty God, then let us go to the
beginning of the book of Job and read Job 1:1,8 and Job 2:3, which
clearly teach us that Job is a RIGHTEOUS man, because Almighty God
HIMSELF DECLARES Job to be a PERFECT and UPRIGHT MAN.
"There was a MAN in the
land of Uz, whose name was Job; and THAT
MAN was PERFECT and UPRIGHT,
and one that feared God, and eschewed evil (or
fled from evil)."
Well some may say, Well that was the narrator of the
book of Job who said that and not Almighty God himself. So to you I
say keep reading, because in Job 1:8 it is CLEARLY Almighty God
speaking these SAME words.
"And the LORD said unto
Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like
him in the earth, a PERFECT and an UPRIGHT MAN, one
that fears God, and eschews evil?"
Then Almighty God REPEATS almost these same exact words
again to us making sure that we KNOW without a doubt that MAN can be
PERFECT and UPRIGHT before God even under the attack of Satan the
"And the LORD said unto
Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like
him in the earth, a PERFECT and an UPRIGHT MAN, one that fears God,
and eschews evil? And
STILL he holds fast his INTEGRITY,
although you move me against him, to destroy him without
So EVEN under the direct attack of Satan we can REMAIN
that PERFECT and UPRIGHT MAN that we have BECOME THROUGH the shed
blood of Jesus who set us FREE from the DOMINION of SIN.
Now that you have seen what the word of TRUTH of the
WHOLE word of God TRULY teaches us you are going to have to make a
choice as to which side you are going to believe, the side of the MAN
Eliphaz who says "What is MAN that he should be CLEAN and One
BORN of a woman that he should be RIGHTEOUS."
OR are you going to side with the word of TRUTH, the
WHOLE world of Almighty God who plainly and clearly declares the MAN
Job to be a PERFECT and an UPRIGHT MAN before him.
Keep in mind that those MEN who teach these FALSE
doctrines of MEN on original sin and total depravity us Job 15:14 in
order to TRY and proved their MAN made doctrines.
My point is this, YOU can believe what you want to
believe, but the TRUTH of the matter is that these FALSE doctrines of
original sin and total depravity will only serve to KEEP you UNDER
the BONDAGE of SIN, because they teach you that you are BORN with a
SINFUL NATURE and that it is YOUR NATURE to SIN.
However if you truly desire to quit sinning and be an
OVER COMER, then start believing the WHOLE word of Almighty God,
rather than the doctrines of MAN.
Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,
