    Total Depravity:

    Gen.2:16 - Gen.2:17 (NKJ)
    16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."

    Romans.5:12 (NKJ)
    12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned

    Eph.2:1 - Eph.2:3 (NKJ)
    1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.

    Col.2:13 - Col.2:13 (NKJ)
    13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,

    Gen.6:5 - Gen.6:5 (NKJ)
    5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

    Gen.8:21 (NKJ)
    21 And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, "I will never again curse the ground for man's sake, although the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.

    Ecc.9:3 (NKJ)
    3 This is an evil in all that is done under the sun: that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

    Jer.17:9 (NKJ)
    9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?

    Mark.7:21 - Mark.7:23 (NKJ)
    21 "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,22 "thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.23 "All these evil things come from within and defile a man."

    John.8:44 (NKJ)
    44 "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

    Eph.2:1 - Eph.2:2 (NKJ)
    1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience

    2Tim.2:25 - 2Tim.2:26 (NKJ)
    25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

    1John.3:10 (NKJ)
    10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.

    1John.5:19 (NKJ)
    19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

    Rom.6:20 (NKJ)
    20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.

    Titus.3:3 (NKJ)
    3 For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.
    4. Fallen man, left in his dead state, is totally unable to repent, to believe the gospel, or to come to Christ.

    John.6:44 (NKJ)
    44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. [Note: The word here translated draws is translated as drags in other passages, such as John 21:11, Acts

    John.6:65 - (NKJ)
    65 And He said, "Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father."

    Rom.3:9 - Rom.3:12 (NKJ)
    9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.10 As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one;11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one."

    Rom.8:7 - Rom.8:8 (NKJ)
    7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

    1Cor.2:14 (NKJ)
    14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

    I can do the other 4 points if you would like to see them. :)

    You would see the ECF views as superior to those of Jesus and His Apostles?

    that is your Calvinistic twist to the words of Jesus Christ. Because there is no other option to respond with!

    Jesus stated that Himself, was he not able to understanding salvation theology proper well enough?

    You can ask them. I do see however that the Scripture is misused for theological purposes.

    ONLY a person with a Calvinistic bent, will ever argue that Jesus speaking to the Jews who wanted to murder Him, and say the these that He was wanting them saved (as we read in Ezekiel 18, 33, etc), that He only meant the "elect". This is what I refer to as twisting the evidence of the Bible for theological gain!

    John 10:27, was Jesus wrong here, or misapplying the scriptures?

    That Jesus died for His sheep is very clear in the Bible. But a sinner becomes His "sheep" after they believe, that is, part of His fold.

    To say that one is a Bible-believing Christian sounds great, but if there is no understanding of what the Bible teaches, the phrase is meaningless. Mormons and J.W.s would probably describe themselves as Bible-believing Christians.

    John 10:26. 'But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you."
    Note this well: the text does not say, "You are not of My sheep because you do not believe." One does not become a sheep by believing; one believes because one is a sheep.
