The Arminian Confession of 1621 on Total Inability

The Arminian Confession of 1621 states this about the total inability of the sinner to obtain eternal salvation:

“It was from this [the Fall of Mankind] that the highest necessity and also advantage of divine grace, prepared for us in Christ the Savior before the ages, clearly appeared.  For without it we would neither shake off the miserable yoke of sin, nor do anything truly good in religion, nor finally ever escape eternal death or any true punishment of sin.  Much less could we at any time obtain eternal salvation without it or through ourselves.”
