It occurred to me that this is a teaching from the Scripture on which we are not very conversant. In fact it is a concept that we ignore. Here are some statements and thoughts on the matter I've collected.
- The Lostness of all Mankind
- A statement by John Piper
- A brief definition
- The teaching is recognized in statements of faith like The Westminster Confession of Faith (1646)
Genesis 3, Romans 1-3, Jeremiah 17:9, Romans 7:14-25
