In the narrative of Genesis 20:-18 we have the real life drama of Abraham who buckles under the pressure and threat of his own loss of life. He told King Abimelech that Sarah was his sister. Abimelech was more than entertaining the idea of a friendly date with Sarah. And God seeing this potential sin, created a dream in the being of the great king. God said in effect, "You are a dead man if you take another man's wife." Here was a pagan man who understood the gravity of the sin of adultery not only on himself but his kingdom. He had come to realize that if he committed adultery and or repeated his performance, his monarchy would be shrouded and would become a reproach toward the Lord God Almighty. Secondly, Abimelech understood his dream; the Author of it and that Producer was the Lord God. Some people think that a sinner cannot perform any good. Having understood all of the ramifications of his situation Abimelech gave Abraham many sheep, oxen, men servants and women servants. Abraham was given a portion of his land within Abimelech's realm. Other things were given such as one thousand pieces of silver. As a result of Abraham's prayer to God-God healed Abimelech, his wife and restored the young women of the dominion the ability to have little children. In summary, let me point out the ability of Abimelech, the sinner, in understanding spiritual matters. He understood the magnitude and the repercussions of the sin of adultery if he pursued his plan. Abimelech had come to understand the Author and the meaning of the spiritual dream. The Author was, of course, the Lord God. He comprehended the truth that if he committed this great sin his nation would be in jeopardy. Abimelech had been told that Abraham was a prophet and he probably knew that this man was a man of God. At least after the situation was remedied he understood this because it was the prayer of Abraham to God that Abimelech, his wife and young women were restored so as to enrich their people. This narrative makes "Total Depravity" little more than a bad misconception. And this is why people who are more Arminian believe that there are no impediments in sinners that would keep them away from understanding the simplicity and yet profound reality of the Christian Gospel. And we also might say that the 'corpse theory' is only putty to plug up the concept of "Total Inability."
