food for thought.

“The Bible doesn’t start with total depravity. Do I believe in total depravity? I actually do. I believe total depravity’s for optimists–I’ve been in ministry ten years, right? I believe those who are optimists think we’re merely totally depraved, I think we’re far worse than that. But I want to start where the Bible starts; the Bible doesn’t start with me being evil. Where does the Bible start? With God! ‘In the beginning, God.’ The story of the Bible starts with God. My problem with the five points of Calvinism is that it starts with me.”–Mark Driscoll
