Wisdom from a 14 year old

This morning my daughter Maddi recounted a conversation she was having with a friend recently… here’s an excerpt…

FRIEND: I don’t think that people who are gay are bad just because they are gay…

MADDI: We’re all bad… unless we have Jesus.  Then He makes us good.

Biblically, here’s what she was saying…

 “None is righteous, no, not one;  no one understands; no one seeks for God.  All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”  Romans 3:10-12

“For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. – Romans 8:3-4

Theologically, these ideas are called “Total Depravity” and “Imputed Righteousness.

Way to go Maddi~
