Doctrines for Exaltation, 1989 Sperry Symposium, pgs. 225-226; “They are taught that because of the Fall, man’s nature is to be evil continually and that only through striving to accept the merits and mercy of the Son of God can any human be rescued from being and doing evil.”
1 Corinthians 9:25; “And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.”
That’s right, man’s nature is evil and carnal and if it weren’t for God’s mercy I’d be nothing.
