#2. The Fight=from the kids chorus singing We Are Born at the beginning i am feeling it. I just want to dance around the room, put my hands in the air and get crazy!
Jesus said we must become converted and like little children. He would not tell us to do this if children were truly born totally depraved. If they were born as totally depraved that would mean that there is nothing in them that is not depraved and therefore we should not become like children in any sense. But Jesus said there was something in children that we need to take as our example (their humility). This passage shows that children are not born totally depraved (see also Psalm 106:36-39).
Here, God is referred to as the "Father of spirits." While we inherit our physical attributes from our physical parents, our inner person, our spirit, we get from God. Our spirit is created 'in His image." If we are born totally depraved, then we are depraved in body and spirit. If that is the case, then we inherit our sinful, depraved spirits from God! But in God there is no evil, and therefore none to pass on to us.
If we were born totally depraved, then we could not get worse.
If total depravity is true, then there is no such thing as "good and honest" hearts.
We are born in one day. We die in one day. We can change in one day. And we can fall in love in one day. Anything can happen in just one day. – Gayle Forman
