“The darkness of the mind is not only the root of all sin but the cause of most of the corruptions in men’s lives. Hence we find that Paul mentions “fleshly wisdom” as the antithesis of the principle of grace (2 Corinthians 1:12). For the same reason men are said to be “sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge” (Jeremiah 4:22). That this is the cause of the greatest part of the wickedness in the world is clear from Isaiah 47:10: “Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee.” Corrupt reasoning and false judgment are the prime motivations of all our sinning. Pride has its chief place in the mind, as Colossians 2:18 shows.”  —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

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