As we lay the foundations for the doctrines of grace, for God’s sovereignty in the salvation of sinners, Pastor David presents the fall of man, original sin, and the total depravity or corruption of all men by nature. Adam’s sin in the garden corrupted his nature that was made in the image of God, and also corrupted all of Adam’s posterity. But the story doesn’t end there because God still loved this corrupted sinner, and gave His only begotten Son to save a fully depraved multitude. The understanding and acceptance of man’s total corruption is the basis for the correct understanding of the gospel of salvation by God’s grace alone.
