Peter Jones’ latest book, The Other Worldview, is now available. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy.
Total depravity describes an extensive reality, rather than an intensive one. It means that sin extends to every aspect of our humanity. Each person’s mind, will, and emotions have been corrupted by sin. No part of any human being has a defense against depravity. But this does not mean that people do as much evil as they possibly could. Total depravity does not speak of the intensity of sin in a person, only that every part of a person has been touched by it.

Humility, on the other hand, allows for God-exaltation to happen in the life and work of the theologian.
