Romans 3:9-12: Total Depravity: Why No Man Can Come To God

by Dale Partridge

Self-love is blinding. Namely, it’s difficult for man to see his flaws when his view of himself is so lofty. The Bible solves this dilemma by offering a pure and precise view of man—including his fallenness and flaws.

According to Scripture, man’s central flaw is his spiritual deadness. A state of the soul that is not righteous, cannot comprehend the Gospel and does not seek for God. It’s a confirmation that no man can come to God without divine assistance.

In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge expounds on this biblical concept as he teaches through Romans 3:9-12.

    “What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.””
