"A ruin so terrible and so early has fallen upon each of us.
Let proud man kick against the doctrine as he may,
Scripture tells us assuredly that we are born in sin and 'shapen in iniquity'
From the very birth we go astray, speaking lies,
and in the very birth ...
unless God has mercy, you are very lost from the very beginning."
PRAYER FROM PSALMS
We are born with the fatal disease of sin
inherited from our earthly parents (Psalm 51:5).
Thank you for the "perfect cure of eternal salvation."
(I Peter 1:23).
