Product Information

This is Volume X of Goodwin’s Works, entitled, ''An Unregenerate Man’s Guiltiness Before God.'' With great thoroughness, Goodwin explores the depths of the total depravity of man by nature.

1. There is a full discussion of the origin of man’s depravity, the first transgression by Adam, and the following propagation of the Adamic sin. What is the justification of this sentence of guilt on all?
2. How deep and broad is this corruption of nature? Is it true that the whole nature of every man is polluted and depraved?
3.  Proofs that all the faculties of the soul are corrupted by sin. First, the corruption of the understanding, that it is so blinded that it cannot apprehend spiritual things in a due spiritual manner.
4. The practical judgments of all unregenerate men are corrupted.
5. The reason of man being corrupted by sin uses its strength and force to advise and contrive the satisfaction of his lusts. Thus, the reason that should be acting for God now acts for sin and lusts.
6. The very thoughts of all men abound in sinfulness. This corruption of the cogitative faculty facilitates the sinfulness of the rest.
7. The conscience, though created as a judge of a man’s actions, is also corrupted and defiled so as not to be able to fulfill its purpose.
8. The inclinations and lusts which are in the will and affections determine men to go after fleshly and sinful pursuits.
9. Wisdom in the hidden part, or practical wisdom concerning original sin, is shown to be a matter of repentance as well as actual sins committed. Why we are humbled for it, and moved to repent of it.
10. This state of guilt and natural corruption is the condition of all unregenerate men, even though they make an external profession of Christianity. Several sorts of men considered, such as the ignorant, the profane, the civil, and the formal Christian. Full answers given for all the pleas and excuses offered to excuse, justify, or flatter themselves.
11. The numberless actual sins an unregenerate man commits  increases his guiltiness daily.
12. The wrath of God is the immediate cause of the punishments in Hell.  Punishments are so great the thoughts cannot conceive them.

No book in all of Christendom so thoroughly explores, explains, and details the guiltiness due the sin that permeates unregenerate men. It is well for those who are regenerated to understand their blessing.
