In his excellent book, The God Who Justifies, James White writes, “Paul’s indictment of the entirety of mankind forms the foundation of the gospel message. There is no good news where the bad news of man’s sinful state is not clearly proclaimed and perceived. The results of sin (The depravity of man) demand a God-centered gospel.”
What do you think? Does White have it right? Do we begin with the knowledge of man lost in sin, or do we begin with the love, mercy, and grace of God? Why or why not?
As always, your thoughts are deeply appreciated.
