Does Romans 3:10-18 Support Calvinistic Total Inability?
Romans 3 simply tells us that we cannot merit salvation on the basis of good deeds. We are all unrighteous according to God's Law. This passage from Romans says plainly that the lost cannot please God, but it does not affirm the inability of us accepting or rejecting the gospel in light of its convicting power and His grace. While man by nature is depraved to the core, we must accept the means by which God regenerates our hearts. We obtain righteousness by His grace through faith.
