If you had to remember just one idea of Christianity, would you include the doctrine of Total Depravity? In this episode, I’m sharing with you the radical, liberating idea of the “law of sin and death.” Contrary to it being a morbid or depressing teaching. Total Depravity liberates us from the tendency of living legalistic lives. Take a listen!

Key Notes to Remember

The Protestant doctrine of Total Depravity teaches that every aspect of life is affected by sin. That means even our best intentions in life are marred by the possibility of sin. But instead of that causing us to mourn over how bad we are, it should instead push us to accept and celebrate the substantial freedom we have in Christ Jesus.
