True State of Mankind

“All the mistakes about regeneration and the errors concerning this aspect of salvation are due to a misunderstanding of the true state of mankind. The Scripture and experience both teach us what people do not want to accept about themselves. It is an evidence of the corruption of human nature, that it prevents the mind from seeing its own corruption. When you do not see the depth of the problem, you will not value rightly the solution.”  –Notes by Mike Stohlmeyer on “Works of John Owen, Vol. 3 – The Holy Spirit” p. 297

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
