The condition of Man after the fall of Adam is such, that he cannot turn and prepare himself, by his own natural strength and good works, to faith; and calling upon God. Wherefore we have no power to do good works pleasant and acceptable to God, without the grace of God by Christ preventing us, that we may have a good will, and working with us, when we have that good will.
Quite a bit of the subject matter in this article, we went into last week. This is another that I 100% agree with. I don’t believe it is essential, or that you are out if you reject it, but this one is a big deal to me. Why, or why not for you?
Feel free, as always, to disagree, and explain fully.
