Challenges to Total Depravity (Part 2)
In this segment, Steve Gregg challenges the idea of total depravity from a Calvinistic perspective. He argues that people have the ability to choose good and refuse evil, citing Proverbs 1:28-30 and Isaiah 66:3 as evidence. He also points out that many verses throughout Scripture suggest that individuals have the opportunity to glorify God without excuse. Gregg believes that regeneration does not necessarily come before faith and cites Acts 16:31 and Ephesians 1:13 as evidence. Finally, he questions why God would blind and harden individuals who are already in a state of depravity.
