But ye have not so learned Christ;
If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is CORRUPT according to the deceitful lusts. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a CORRUPT spring
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are CORRUPT they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one
Matthew 7: 13-33
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a CORRUPT tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Scriptures say that All are CORRUPT (depraved) and ALL need the Saviour Jesus Christ to save them from the CORRUPT sinful nature that was inherited by the sin of Adam passed on to ALL in that ALL have sinned.
