SEA members Micah and A.J. Curado have put together this video presentation on the meaning of the biblical concept of being dead in sin. Please note that at the beginning it might seem like they are saying we can respond positively to God in our natural sinful state without God supernaturally aiding us. However, God’s supernatural help (prevenient grace) is assumed throughout the presentation and at points is specifically mentioned. What the video is claiming is that we can respond positively to God by his help and grace without first being “regenerated” (given new life) by him. Even when we are “dead in sins”, God can enable us to believe before he gives us new life in Christ, and then, once we respond by believing in Jesus, he gives us new life (regenerates us).
