Episode 9.3: The State of Sin


What has changed in the present state of sin? What do the clarifiers “spiritual” and “accompanying salvation” distinguish for us about this conversation? How does man’s aversion to righteousness play out? What about preparation for conversion? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 9.3:

Man, by his fall into a state of sin, has wholly lost all ability of will to any spiritual good accompanying salvation: so as, a natural man, being altogether averse from that good, and dead in sin, is not able, by his own strength, to convert himself, or to prepare himself thereunto.
