Dead in Sin

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. (John 6:33 ESV)

Craig R. Brown:

In summary, the Arminian believes that man is born sick in sin, but still has enough good in him to choose John CalvinGod. The Calvinist believes that man is born corrupt (dead in his sin), so he must be made alive spiritually before he can do anything of a spiritual nature. Under the Calvinistic doctrinal system, man’s depravity is total in extent (though not in degree). In other words, all of man’s nature is corrupted by sin, but he is not as evil as he could be.  (The Five Dilemmas of Calvinism)
