Theological Term of the Week: Depravity

Theology-image

This week’s term: Depravity – The inherent condition of all Adam’s fallen race, in which every part and attribute of man’s being is deprived off the glorious state in which Adam was created. This depravity is total, not in its intensity, but in its extent. (Romans 3)

Last week’s term: Monergism – From Greek Mono (one or alone). Theologically, it is the philosophy or faith that God saves alone and completely apart from any cooperative human effort, not denying human submission or obedience, but asserting that those functions are effects of grace, not its causes.
