Total depravity and doing good

16 Jul

The more we believe our salvation is dependent on our own efforts, the less good we will do. The less we believe in the saving value of our good works, the more zealous we will be.

Or as someone else has said, ‘promoting good works depends on undermining belief in their efficacy.’
