Men sometimes object to the doctrine of the depravity of mankind. But the strongest teachings of the Bible and of the pulpit are more than confirmed by their own actions – by the conduct of the world itself. Every bolt and bar, and lock and key, every receipt, and check, and note of hand, every law book and court of justice, every chain, and dungeon, and gallows, proclaim that the world is a fallen world, and that our race is a depraved and sinful race.
