     God’s View of the Goodness of Man

Genesis 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great
    on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was
    only evil continually.
Genesis 8:21 …"I will never again curse the ground on account of man,
    for the intent of man's heart is evil from his youth; and I will never
    again destroy every living thing, as I have done.
Psalm 14:2, 3 The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of
    men To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God.
    They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt;
    There is no one who does good, not even one.
Isaiah 64:6 For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all
     our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment…

Knowing False and True Repentance
                  “Let us beware of being wise above that
                  which is written, and more charitable than
                  Scripture itself. Let the language of John
                  the Baptist be deeply graven in our hearts.
                  Let us never be ashamed to avow our firm
                  belief, that there is a “wrath to come” for the
                  impenitent, and that it is possible for a man
                  to be lost as well as to be saved. To be silent
                  on the subject is positive treachery to men’s
                  souls. It only encourages them to persevere
                  in wickedness, and fosters in their minds
                  the devil’s old delusion, “Ye shall not surely
                  die.”
That minister is surely our best friend who tells
us honestly of danger, and warns us, like John
the Baptist, to “flee the wrath to come.”

     iii   Bears fruit of Civility
