Quotes to Consider:
Canons of Dordt, 3rd & 4th Heads, Art. 1-3:
"Man was originally formed after the image of God. His understanding
was adorned with a true and saving knowledge of his Creator, and of
spiritual things; his heart and will were upright; all his
affections pure; and the whole man was holy; but revolting from God
by the instigation of the devil, and abusing the freedom of his own
will, he forfeited these excellent gifts; and on the contrary
entailed on himself blindness of mind, horrible darkness, vanity and
perverseness of judgment, became wicked, rebellious, and obdurate in
heart and will, and impure in his affections. Man after the fall
begat children in his own likeness. A corrupt stock produced a
corrupt offspring. Hence all the posterity of Adam, Christ only
excepted, have derived corruption from their original parent, not by
imitation, as the Pelagians of old asserted, but by the propagation
of a vicious nature. Therefore all men are conceived in sin, and by
nature children of wrath, incapable of saving good, prone to evil,
dead in sin, and in bondage thereto, and without the regenerating
grace of the Holy Spirit, they are neither able nor willing to
return to God, to reform the depravity of their nature, nor to
dispose themselves to reformation."
