Total Depravity Means Totally Unable

We do not come into this world the spiritually neutral, in other words; we are born with an inheritance of Adam’s sin – that is, a death sentence.  We therefore need much more than to reach out from our spiritual hospital bed to take the medicine that God offers.  In this case, total depravity means we are totally unable to approach God on our own power.
