The doctrine of the deity of Christ says that Jesus possesses a truly divine nature. It does not deny that he possesses a truly human nature also, with all of its attendant properties intact and unconfused (which is the corresponding doctrine of the hypostatic union or dual natures of Christ). But it affirms that he is as to his deity, in the language of the Nicene Creed, “the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father.” Here is a sweeping survey of the biblical support for the doctrine.
The doctrine of total depravity (or total inability) says that all men, as a consequence of the Fall, are born morally corrupt, enslaved to sin, at enmity with God, and unable to please Him or even of themselves to turn to Christ for salvation. (Thus the necessity of a gracious, unconditional election.) Here is a sweeping survey of the biblical support for the doctrine.
