People are good…Aren’t they?

My friend Jim West gets many questions thrown at him from all over the world. He faithfully responds to each and every one of them honestly (and yup, he pulls no punches)! Recently he was asked this one…

Dear Jim,

Sincerely,
Samantha

Dear Samantha,

The notion that people are ‘good’ flies in the face of both Scripture and Christian theology. Scripture is plain in its assertion that ‘all we like sheep have gone astray, we’ve all turned to our own way’ and again ‘there is none righteous, no, not one’ and again, all have sinned and come quite short of God’s glory’ and again, ‘Why do you call me good, there is none good but God alone’… and many more.

Hence, only persons bereft of any knowledge of the Bible will willingly say ‘people are good’…[Continued Here!]
