“The heart is the moral center from which all the issues or outgoings of life proceed, and none but God knows how evil it is. The thoughts formed within such a heart are vain and sinful. The imagination or formation of them, their very first stirrings, are evil. As we stated, the Hebrew word for “imagination of the heart” signifies a matrix, the frame in which our thoughts are cast. Observe that every imagination is evil. No good ideas are intermingled; all are unrelieved badness—not simply the outward acts, but also the first movements of the soul toward an object. There we have the source from which all the wickedness of men proceeds. The corrupt moods within us are in a constant fermentation. Man’s heart is such that, left to itself, it will always be producing inordinate affections and emotions.

Men are “only evil” without exception, wholly so; there is not a single virtuous one among them. Furthermore, they are “evil continually,” without intermission all the days of their lives, therefore all their works are evil and fruitless. “The imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth” ( Genesis 8:21).” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “Man’s Totaly Depravity” by Arthur W. Pink (1886–1952)
