Eph 2 1 3. Total depravity does not mean that human beings are as bad as they could be, but that sin impacts every part of a persons being and that people now have a sinful nature with a natural inclination toward sin. Human beings are fundamentally corrupt at heart. As Scripture tells us, The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick Jer 1. Gen 6 5 Matt 1. Luke 1. Indeed, human beings are spiritually dead in sins Eph 2 1 3 Col 2 1. Rom 6 1. 7 2. 0. The Apostle Paul even says, I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh Rom 7 1.

Article 2 of the 5 Articles of the RemonstranceAs observed above, due to total depravity, no one can be saved unless God takes the initiative. The good news is that, since God is love 1 John 4 8, 1. Ps. 1. 45 9, he loves even his enemies Matt 5 3. Tim. 2 4, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance 2 Pet. Ezek. 1. 8 2. 3, 3. Son to die for the sins of the world. As John 3 1. 6 1. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. God has provided for the forgiveness of sins and salvation of every person by the death of Jesus Christ on behalf of sinful humanity. Indeed, by the grace of God Jesus tasted death for everyone Heb 2 9. As 1 John 2 2 says, He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world NIV. After the statement of 1 Tim 2 4 quoted above that God desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, the following verses from 1 Timothy continue, For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time 1 Tim 2 5 6. Indeed, the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost Luke 1. Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners 1 Tim 1 1. Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world 1 John 4 1.

Jesus even died for those who reject him and his word, deny him, and perish Luke 2. John 1. 2 4. 6 4. Rom 1. 4 1. 5 1 Cor 8 1. Pet 2 1 Heb 1. 0 2. The provision of atonement has been made for as many as sin, which is all people Rom 3 2. But even though Jesus died for all and has provided atonement for all, the intent of the atonement provided was that its actual application which grants the forgiveness of sins, righteous status with God, and salvation be conditional on faith in Jesus Christ. This is stated rather clearly in John 3 1. Out of love, God sacrificed his only Son for the world so that those from the world who trust in Jesus and his atoning sacrifice will benefit from that atoning sacrifice and be saved while those from the world who reject that atoning sacrifice in unbelief will not benefit from it but remain condemned and perish cf.

Since the atonement was provided for all, making salvation available to all, Scripture sometimes portrays justification as potential for all people Rom 3 2. Although God desires that all believe and be saved through Christs blood, many will perish, not for lack of the availability of salvation, but because they reject the saving provision made for them in Christs death and have not believed in the name of the only Son of God John 3 1.

Father and the Son have provided salvation for all that is effective only for those who believe. As 1 Tim 4 1. 0 itself says, we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. And Titus 2 1. Christ to the unbelieving world with this reason For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people. Indeed, it is Christs unlimited atonement that serves as the necessary foundation of the genuine offer of salvation held out to all in the gospel and is in accord with the command to preach the gospel to all. For example, speaking to a general Jewish audience, the Apostle Peter based a call to repentance on the work of Christ and implied that work was for everyone in his audience when he assured them that God sent Christ to turn each of them from their sin 1. But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled. Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, 2. Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, 2. God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.
