Romans 3:13-18: Total Depravity: The Wickedness of Humanity

by Dale Partridge

Outside of Christ, humanity is far more wicked than we know. If the heart and soul of a person is unregenerate, because their soul is separated from the source of life, which is God, then only death will flow out of them. When a person is alive in Christ, life will flow out of them.

This can not happen without the work of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ. When God causes us to be born again, He unites our hearts to Him through the Person and work of our Lord and Savior Jesus.

In this episode of Real Christianity, Pastor Dale Partridge continues his exposition of Romans 3:9–18 in an effort to uncover the doctrine of Total Depravity. In the previous episode, Dale taught on the depravity of the mind, the ears, and the eyes of man. In this episode, we see how that depravity also saturates the body and the actions of man. Namely, we will see how depravity is total in its nature.
