Romans 3:19 - Guilty Without Excuse

Romans 3:19 Whatsoever the law - The Old Testament.  Saith, it saith to them that are under the law - That is, to those who own its authority; to the Jews, and not the gentiles.  St. Paul quoted no scripture against them, but pleaded with them only from the light of nature.  Every mouth - Full of bitterness, Romans 3:14, and yet of boasting, Romans 3:27.  May become guilty - May be fully convicted, and apparently liable to most just condemnation.  These things were written of old, and were quoted by St. Paul, not to make men criminal, but to prove them so. (John Wesley)
"Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God;" (NASB)

"Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God." (KJV)

"Obviously, the law applies to those to whom it was given, for its purpose is to keep people from having excuses, and to show that the entire world is guilty before God." (NLT)

"Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world may be held accountable to God." (NET)

THE SINNER IS UNQUESTIONABLY GUILTY. It is not merely that he has infirmities or that he is not as good as he ought to be: he has set at nought God’s authority, violated His commandments, trodden His Laws under foot.  And this is true not only of a certain class of offenders, but “all the world” is “guilty before God” (Arthur W. Pink, Doctrine of Justification)

Let us consider that God wants us to know that He knows of what He pardoning us!  This is in order that we may acknowledge what we truly deserve (cease from "excuses" and become "guilty").  For us to become wise, we must first become fools (1 Corinthians 3:18) and then become our own enemy and judge ourselves to be worthy of eternal damnation so that we may become God's friend! Where there is no true penitence there is no forgiveness.

Penitence: sorrow or grief of heart for sins or offenses; contrition.  Real penitence springs from a conviction of guilt and ingratitude to God, and is followed by amendment of life. (Noah Webster)

Stop deceiving yourselves. If you think you are wise by this world's standards, you need to become a fool to be truly wise. (1 Corinthians 3:18)

"Then you will remember your past sins and despise yourselves for all the detestable things you did." (Ezekiel 36:31 NLT)

Romans 3:18 - Dissing the Almighty

Romans 3:9-18  Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness.  This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them.  Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians.  Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes.  And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.  Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE THEIR EYES." (NASB)

"There is no fear of God before their eyes." (KJV)

"They have no fear of God at all." (NLT)

"There is no fear of God before their eyes." (NET)

"For the choir director: A psalm of David, the servant of the LORD. Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts. They have no fear of God at all." (Psalm 36:1 NLT)

G5401
φο?βος
phóbos; gen. phóbou, masc. noun from phébomai (n.f.), to flee from. Fear, terror, reverence, respect, honor. The fear "of God" or the Lord meaning a deep and reverential sense of accountability to God or Christ (Romans 3:18) (Word Study)

"There is no fear of God before their eyes - This completes their bad character; they are downright atheists, at least practically such.  They fear not God’s judgments, although his eye is upon them in their evil ways.  There is not one article of what is charged against the Jews and Gentiles here that may not be found justified by the histories of both, in the most ample manner.  And what was true of them in those primitive times is true of them still.  With very little variation, these are the evils in which the vast mass of mankind delight and live.  Look especially at men in a state of warfare; look at the nations of Europe, who enjoy most of the light of God; see what has taken place among them from 1792 to 1814; see what destruction of millions, and what misery of hundreds of millions, have been the consequence of Satanic excitement in fallen, ferocious passions!  O Sin, what hast thou done! How many myriads of souls hast thou hurried, unprepared, into the eternal world!  Who, among men or angels, can estimate the greatness of this calamity!  This butchery of souls! What widows, what orphans, are left to deplore their sacrificed husbands and parents, and their own consequent wretchedness!  And whence sprang all this?  From that, whence come all wars and fightings; the evil desires of men; the lust of dominion; the insatiable thirst for money; and the desire to be sole and independent.  This is the sin that ruined our first parents, expelled them from paradise, and which has descended to all their posterity; and proves fully, incontestably proves, that we are their legitimate offspring; the fallen progeny of fallen parents; children in whose ways are destruction and misery; in whose heart there is no faith; and before whose eyes there is nothing of the fear of God." Dr Adam Clarke

Today we see the ever increasing "dissing" of the things of God and the attitude of utter contempt toward the person of God. Referring back to Romans 1 and the words of Dr. Alva J. McClain:

"The Word of God continues to stand in the World.  The cross of Christ, although it occurred nineteen hundred years ago, continues to stand as the great witness to the wrath of God.  Similarly, the wrath of God is being revealed continuously upon those who break the laws of God in nature.  It is a standing revelation" Dr. Alva J. McClain, Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace.

Where there is no respect there can be no hope! This contempt exists in the midst of the revelation of God in nature where His attributes can be plainly seen. We instead create theories that deny the existence of the Almighty and replace Him with primordial soup and spontaneous creation of the universe and all life from nothing! Bang! The stuff that shouldn't even pass the laugh test is elevated by reprobate minds to the level of fact without evidence. Those who would believe anything contrary are vilified. How low have we fallen! Yet still Grace abounds to sinners who will on Christ believe!

Romans 3:17 - Peace NOT

Romans 3:9-18  Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness.  This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them.  Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians.  Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes.  And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.  Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"AND THE PATH OF PEACE THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN." (NASB)

"And the way of peace have they not known:" (KJV)

"They don't know where to find peace." (NLT)

"and the way of peace they have not known." (NET)

Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder.  They think only about sinning. Misery and destruction always follow them. They don't know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good. They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment's peace. (Isaiah 59:7-8 NLT)

"There is no peace for the wicked," says my God." (Isaiah 57:21 NLT)

"Because of God's tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace." (Luke 1:78-79 NLT)

"Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us." (Romans 5:1 NLT)

And the way of peace ... - What tends to promote their own happiness, or that of others, they do not regard.  Intent on their plans of evil, they do not know or regard what is suited to promote the welfare of themselves or others.  This is the case with all who are selfish, and who seek to gain their own purposes of crime and ambition.  Dr. Albert Barnes

What an amazing contrast between the words of Isaiah (here quoted by Paul) and the prophecy of Zechariah about the coming Messiah and the fruit of our position in Christ. Those who did not and could not know peace can be transformed by the Prince of Peace and gain an everlasting peace! Our destiny clear either way, only the Lord Jesus can guide us to the path which is Himself (the way, the truth and the life). How wondrous is Thy Grace, Lord!

And the way of peace have they not known.  This is a citation front Isaiah 59:8, and expresses the ignorance of mankind, with regard to true peace, and the way unto it: men are naturally ignorant of the way of peace with God; of the first step which God took towards it; of the council and covenant of peace, in which the scheme of it was drawn, and the method fixed; of Christ the peacemaker, and of the way in which he has made it; and of the Gospel, which reveals and publishes it.  They are ignorant of the true way of enjoying peace of conscience; they have no true peace of mind, their consciences are often tortured; and though they may have a stupid and secure peace, yet nothing that is true, real, and solid; for they are without the Spirit, whose fruit is peace; and without faith in Christ, by which true peace only is enjoyed; nor are they spiritually minded, which is life and peace; nor have they any knowledge of the way to have it; they are ready to think it must be had by doing something of their own, and not that it is to be had only in Christ, in his blood and righteousness.  They are ignorant of the paths of wisdom, which are peace; peace is enjoyed in them, they lead unto it, and issue in it: they know not the way to eternal peace; they imagine something done by the creature is the way; and are ignorant that Christ is the only way of salvation, the true way to eternal life, everlasting peace and happiness: yea, they know not the way of peace among men, and one another; nor will they do that which is just and right, in order to support and maintain it, but are unjust, deceitful, and quarrelsome; they do not study peace, but rather contention, which they like and approve of.  Dr. John Gill

Romans 3:16 - A Crushing Path

Romans 3:9-18  Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness.  This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them.  Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians.  Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes.  And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.  Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"DESTRUCTION AND MISERY ARE IN THEIR PATHS," (NASB)

"Destruction and misery are in their ways:" (KJV)

"Destruction and misery always follow them." (NLT)

"Ruin and misery are in their paths," (NET)

"You will be smashed like a piece of pottery—shattered so completely that there won't be a piece big enough to carry coals from a fireplace or a little water from the well." (Isaiah 30:14 NLT)

"Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder.  They think only about sinning.  Misery and destruction always follow them." (Isaiah 59:7 NLT)

G4938

συ?ντριμμα
súntrimma; gen. suntrímmatos, neut. noun from suntríbo? (G4937), to break into pieces, crush.  A crushing, fracture, breaking to pieces, destruction

Misery
MIS'ERY, n. s as z. [L. miseria.]

  1. Great unhappiness; extreme pain of body or mind. A man suffers misery from the gout, or from great afflictions, distress, calamity,and other evils. Misery expresses somewhat less than wretchedness.  Misery is as really the fruit of vice reigning in the heart, as tares are the produce of tares sown in the field.
  2. Calamity; misfortune; natural evils which are the cause of misery.  And mourn the miseries of human life.

No matter how you slice it, destruction and misery are the the Wrath of God inflicted by the weight of our very own sin!  We often think in terms of the clouds parting and fire raining down from above!  Yet the reality is that the Law of God (like the gravity of His creation) bring about the judgement at our own hand!  We are literally undone!  However, our reprobation holds us in this pit of destruction, we are helpless to act and unwilling to act.  What part of this life crushed by sin do we wish to cling?  Where is the visage not marred that we would want to keep it?  Yet the very hand that righteously condemns us, holds us safe against that day when we would believe (Jonathan Edwards, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God - paraphrase mine).

Romans 3:15 - Feet that Shed Blood

Romans 3:15

Rom 3:9-18
Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness. This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them. Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians. Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes. And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"'THEIR FEET ARE SWIFT TO SHED BLOOD,"" (NASB)

"Their feet are swift to shed blood:" (KJV)

"'They rush to commit murder.'" (NLT)

"'Their feet are swift to shed blood,'" (NET)

Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder. They think only about sinning. Misery and destruction always follow them. They don't know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good. They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment's peace.
(Isaiah 59:7-8 NLT)

One does not spend much time in the world before this truth is seen in full measure.  Nations have been quick to shed blood since the beginning.  Paul refers to Isaiah in part to bring forth this truth.  This is the sin of action.  Isaiah is perhaps referring to the times of Manasseh, who shed so much innocent blood, as to fill Jerusalem with it from one end to the other (Dr. John Gill).  Is not this the hidden monsters from the "id" idiosyncrasy that are alive and well within us?  Is not our nation the reflection of the sum of its people?

Romans 3:14 - Bitter Potty Mouth

Romans 3:14

Rom 3:9-18
Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness. This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them. Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians. Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes. And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"'WHOSE MOUTH IS FULL OF CURSING AND BITTERNESS'" (NASB)

"Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:" (KJV)

"'Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.'" (NLT)

"'Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.'" (NET)

Cursing - Reproachful and opprobrious language, such as Shimei used in relation to David; 2Sa 16:5, 2Sa 16:7-8. Dr. Albert Barnes

Opprobrious
OPPRO'BRIOUS, a. [See Opprobrium.]

1. Reproachful and contemptuous; scurrilous; as opprobrious language; opprobrious words or terms.

2. Blasted with infamy; despised; rendered hateful; as an opprobrious name.

Psalms 10:7 "Their mouths are full of cursing, lies, and threats. Trouble and evil are on the tips of their tongues." (NLT)

Jeremiah 2:19 "Your wickedness will bring its own punishment.  Your turning from Me will shame you. You will see what an evil, bitter thing it is to abandon the LORD your God and not to fear Him.  I, the Lord, the LORD of Heaven's Armies, have spoken!"

Psalm 59:12 "Because of the sinful things they say, because of the evil that is on their lips, let them be captured by their pride, their curses, and their lies."

Psalm 109:17 "He loved to curse others; now you curse him. He never blessed others; now don't you bless him."

Those whose mouths should be full of sweetness are instead the most bitter.

Romans 3:13 - Poison Lips - Graveyard Throats

Romans 3:13

Rom 3:9-18
Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness. This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them. Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians. Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes. And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"'THEIR THROAT IS AN OPEN GRAVE, WITH THEIR TONGUES THEY KEEP DECEIVING," "THE POISON OF ASPS IS UNDER THEIR LIPS'" (NASB)

"Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:" (KJV)

"'Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongues are filled with lies.'  'Snake venom drips from their lips.'" (NLT)

"'Their throats are open graves, they deceive with their tongues, the poison of asps is under their lips.'" (NET)

"The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart." (Luke 6:46)

"My enemies cannot speak a truthful word.  Their deepest desire is to destroy others.  Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave.  Their tongues are filled with flattery." (Psalm 5:9 NLT)

"Their tongues sting like a snake; the venom of a viper drips from their lips. Interlude" (Psalm 140:3)

Out of the heart, then through the throat, tongue and lips comes the truth of our fallen estate.  If we only knew the grief that each of out thoughts and acts would cause we could see the fulfillment of God's Grace as the indwelling Spirit gives us the strength to choose victory over our lostness.  From graveyard throats to those that sing praises.  What an amazing journey!

The poison of the snake is stored in the small sack at the base of the individual fang.  During the strike the poison is injected into the wound and quickly spreads throughout the body causing great harm and even death.

Mathew 23:33 "Snakes! Sons of vipers! How will you escape the judgment of hell?" (NLT)

Dr. John Gill expresses it thus: ''the throat' is said to 'be an open sepulcher', as in Psalm 5:9, so called, for its voracity and insatiableness; both as an instrument of speech, for the words of the wicked are devouring ones; and as an instrument of swallowing, and so may denote the sinner's eager desire after sin, the delight and pleasure he takes in it, the abundance of it he takes in, and his insatiable greediness for it; likewise for its filthy stench, the communication of evil men being corrupt; and because, as by an open grave, persons may fall unawares to their hurt, so the evil communications of wicked men, as they corrupt good manners, are dangerous and hurtful: R. Aben Ezra explains it by ???? ???, 'immediate destruction', or sudden death."

Romans 3:12 - Putrid is as Putrid Does

Romans 3:12

Rom 3:9-18
Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness. This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them. Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians. Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes. And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"'ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE BECOME USELESS; THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD, THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE.'" (NASB)

"They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." (KJV)

"'All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.'" (NLT)

"'All have turned away, together they have become worthless; there is no one who shows kindness, not even one.'" (NET)

They are all gone out of the way - παντες εξεκλιναν, they have all diverged from the right way, they have either abandoned or corrupted the worship of God: the Jews, in forsaking the law and the prophets, and the Gentiles, in acting contrary to the law which God had written on their hearts.  And the departure of both from the truth proves the evil propensity of human nature in general. (Dr. Adam Clarke)

Become unprofitable - This word in Hebrew means to become “putrid” and “offensive,” like fruit that is spoiled.  In Arabic, it is applied to “milk” that becomes sour.  Applied to moral subjects, it means to become corrupt and useless.  They are of no value in regard to works of righteousness. (Dr. Albert Barnes)

"Anyone who does not remain in Me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers.  Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned." (John 15:6 NLT)

Because of our fallen estate, we cannot appreciate how we look from Father's perspective.  Remembering Isaiah's experience and his reaction, "I am a man of unclean lips," we begin to see sin exposed in the light of Glory.  The good news is that the Gospel continues is work in our hearts until it is completed.  Is this not something that is worthy of sharing with those around us?  Of course one must experience Grace to be able to share Grace.  One must know Jesus to be able to introduce Him to those whom we know.

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6 NLT)

Romans 3:11 - The Unwise Can't Understand

Romans 3:11

Rom 3:9-18
Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness. This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them. Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians. Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes. And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS, THERE IS NONE WHO SEEKS FOR GOD;" (NASB)

"There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God." (KJV)

"No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God." (NLT)

"there is no one who understands, there is no one who seeks God." (NET)

This becomes the logical result of having a reprobate mind.  We cannot know or understand the depth of our own depravity.  We cannot seek after God because we are still His enemy.  Every fiber of our being is diametrically opposed to the Will of God.

Rom 3:11
There is none that understandeth - In the Hebrew Psa 14:2, God is represented as looking down from heaven to see, that is, to make investigation, whether there were any that understood or sought after him.  This circumstance gives not only high poetic beauty to the passage, but deep solemnity and awfulness. God, the searcher of hearts, is represented as making investigation on this very point.  He looks down from heaven for this very purpose, to ascertain whether there were any righteous.  In the Hebrew it is not asserted, though it is clearly and strongly implied, that none such were found.  That fact the apostle “states.”  If, as the result of such an investigation, none were found; if God did not specify that there were any such; then it follows that there were none.  For none could escape the notice of his eye; and if there had been any, the benevolence of his heart would have led him to record it.  To understand is used in the sense of being wise; or of having such a state of moral feeling as to dispose them to serve and obey God.  The word is often used in the Bible, not to denote a mere intellectual operation of the mind, but the state of the heart inclining the mind to obey and worship God; Psa 107:43; Psa 119:27, Psa 119:100; Pro 5:5; Isa 6:10; “Lest they should understand with their heart,” etc.

That seeketh after God - That endeavors to know and do his will, and to be acquainted with his character.  A disposition not to seek after God, that is, to neglect and forget him, is one of the most decided proofs of depravity.  A righteous man counts it his highest privilege and honor to know God, and to understand his will. A man can indulge in wickedness only by forgetting God.  Hence, a disposition “not” to seek God is full proof of depravity.

Romans 3:10 - Righteousness NOT

Romans 3:10

Rom 3:9-18
Here again is shown that all mankind are under the guilt of sin, as a burden; and under the government and dominion of sin, as enslaved to it, to work wickedness. This is made plain by several passages of Scripture from the Old Testament, which describe the corrupt and depraved state of all men, till grace restrain or change them. Great as our advantages are, these texts describe multitudes who call themselves Christians. Their principles and conduct prove that there is no fear of God before their eyes. And where no fear of God is, no good is to be looked for.
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

"as it is written, "THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE;" (NASB)

"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" (KJV)

"As the Scriptures say, "No one is righteous—not even one." (NLT)

"just as it is written: 'There is no one righteous, not even one,'" (NET)

"Who can bring purity out of an impure person? No one!" (Job 14:4 NLT)

"Can any mortal be pure? Can anyone born of a woman be just?" (Job 15:14 NLT)

"The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?" (Jeremiah 15:19 NLT)

"For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander." (Matthew 15:19)

"For the choir director: A psalm of David. Only fools say in their hearts, "There is no God."  They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!  The LORD looks down from heaven on the entire human race; He looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God. But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt.  No one does good, not a single one!" (Psalms 14:1-3 NLT)

"For the choir director: A meditation; a psalm of David. Only fools say in their hearts, "There is no God." They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good! God looks down from heaven on the entire human race; He looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God.  But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not a single one!" (Psalms 53:1-3 NLT)

“If the words which the apostle uses, do not most fully and determinately signify an universality, no words ever used in the Bible are sufficient to do it.  I might challenge any man to produce any one paragraph in the scriptures, from the beginning to the end, where there is such a repetition and accumulation of terms, so strongly, and emphatically, and carefully, to express the most perfect and absolute universality, or any place to be compared to it.” Jonathan Edwards on Original Sin

We see from the Scripture quotations that the depravity of man is not new or even unique to the present age.  The total depravity of man is all encompassing! Not one in the whole human race is righteous.  So complete is the depravity that not one seeks after God because the wickedness of the heart prevents such an inclination.  We begin to see the complete lostness of the human race, we are without strength or inclination to extricate ourselves from this predicament.
