Humanism’s fatal mistake is to confuse ability or CAPACITY with CHOICE. A man can know right and how to do it. From the dawn of moral awakening, however, the whole record of Scripture and history is that we choose instead to do WRONG. Even the seemingly “good” actions of unchanged men and women are done from secret selfishness (like hope of self-gain or fear of punishment and disapproval). “Too much good in even the worst of us” is not what the Bible says but — “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God… there is NONE that does good, no, not one” (Romans 3:23, 10; 7:18). Sinful people cannot please God with their excuses for rebellion in “good deeds” (Isaiah 64:6; Matthew 7:21-23; Galatians 2:16; 1 Corinthians 13:3).
