How Total Is Total Depravity? (13 August 2010 - Revised 21 August 2010)
One evening I found myself studying in Romans chapter one and two. The study has given me great pause regarding the Calvinist concept of "Total Depravity." The concept says people are totally depraved from birth. It assumes there is no generalize degree grace of God upon sinners to limit “Total Depravity.” Totally depraved or not, the Work of the Holy Spirit is needed before the any sinner can come into Salvation.
The following is an opinion regarding how sin began in the Garden of Eden. Did God create "Sin?" Did God fail to be "Perfect" if He failed to create Adam and Eve so that they would not sin? I hope it inspires you to study, and consider the possibilities that understanding some of this is NOT so "Black and White." This document presupposes an existing knowledge in the reader about the Creation account in the Bible in Genesis.

This PDF document contains four pages of Scriptures for private meditative reading when you are sick. It is my prayer these verses will teach, encourage, and convict for more holiness in your life. We know God is sovereign over all that happens, both good and bad, so we need to seek Him deeply for why we are going through a trial of sickness. Is it due sin? Is for refinement toward more holiness in your life? Nothing is coincidence. Seek God when you are sick! Study his Word for hours at a time. Praise Him in song too!
