John Wayne Gacy was put to death by lethal
injection in the early morning hours of May 10,
1994 for the rape and murder of 33 young men and
boys, 29 of whom he buried in the crawl space
beneath his own Chicago home between the years of
1972 and 1978. After his death, he was
delivered into the hands of Dr. Helen Morrison to
perform a very unique autopsy. Dr. Morrison had
previously interviewed Gacy, along with many
other serial killers, in an attempt to isolate
personality traits that were common among such
ruthless murderers. Now at the request of Gacys
family, Dr. Morrison was going to remove the
brain of the notorious serial killer in hopes of
discovering some sort of physical abnormality
that would provide answers for why Gacy destroyed
so many innocent lives.

Man Created in Gods Image
"Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image,
according to Our likeness and let them rule over
the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky
and over the cattle and over all the earth, and
over every creeping thing that creeps on the
earth. God created man in His own image, in the
image of God He created him male and female He
created them. (Genesis 126-27)

Man Created in Mans Image
"When Adam had lived one hundred and thirty
years, he became the father of a son in his own
likeness, according to his image, and named him
Seth. (Genesis 53) "Behold, I was brought
forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived
me. (Psalm 515)

"Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was
great on the earth, and that every intent of the
thoughts of his heart was only evil
continually. (Genesis 65) The fool has said
in his heart, There is no God. They are
corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds
There is no one who does good. The Lord has
looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To
see if there are any who understand, Who seek
after God. They have all turned aside, together
they have become corrupt There is no one who
does good, not even one. (Psalm 141-3)
"Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And
in sin my mother conceived me. (Psalm
515) "Indeed, there is not a righteous man on
earth who continually does good and who never
sins. (Ecclesiastes 720)

"For out of the heart come evil thoughts,
murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false

God, (Romans 323) "Therefore, just as through
one man sin entered into the world, and death
through sin, and so death spread to all men,
because all sinned (Romans 512) "If we say
that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves
and the truth is not in us. (1 John 18)

Whatever weakens your reasoning, impairs the
tenderness of your conscience, obscures your
sense of God, or takes away your relish for
spiritual things, in short if anything
increases the authority and the power of the
flesh over the Spirit, that to you becomes sin
however good it is in itself. - Suzanna Wesley

What is Depravity?

"If anyone advocates a different doctrine and
does not agree with sound words, those of our
Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine
conforming to godliness, he is conceited and
understands nothing but he has a morbid interest
in controversial questions and disputes about
words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive
language, evil suspicions, and constant friction
between men of depraved mind and deprived of the
truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of
gain."(1 Timothy 63-5)

The Moment Lyle Reloaded
The moment in the course of the Menendez
brothers' double murder when Lyle and Erik had
emptied their shotguns into the bodies of their
parents, but realized their mother was still
alive, crawling around in the blood. Mom was
alive and whimpering and, as Maury puts it,
poor-little-rich-boy Lyle "went out of the house
and then came back in to blow away the mother
"That was the crushing blow for the whole abuse
defense," he said. "That jolted audiences.
There's been a backlash. Abuse defenses are now
looked at cynically, and audiences are falling
back on the old beliefs in good and evil." They
are, moreover, capable of making subtle
philosophic distinctions between modes of evil -

Depravitys Effects
Spiritual Death And you were dead in your
trespasses and sins, (Ephesians 21)
Physical Death Therefore, just as through one
man sin entered into the world, and death through
sin, and so death spread to all men, because all
sinned (Romans 512)
Eternal Death "Then death and Hades were thrown
into the lake of fire. This is the second death,
the lake of fire. "And if anyones name was not
found written in the book of life, he was thrown
into the lake of fire. (Revelation 2014-15)

Two Witnesses to Sin Holy Spirit
"And He, when He comes, will convict the world
concerning sin and righteousness and judgment
concerning sin, because they do not believe in
Me and concerning righteousness, because I go to
the Father and you no longer see Me and
concerning judgment, because the ruler of this
world has been judged." (John 168-11)

Two Witnesses to Sin Conscience
"For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do
instinctively the things of the Law, these, not
having the Law, are a law to themselves, in that
they show the work of the Law written in their
hearts, their conscience bearing witness and
their thoughts alternately accusing or else
defending them," (Romans 214-15) " But the
Spirit explicitly says that in later times some
will fall away from the faith, paying attention
to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by
means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their
own conscience as with a branding iron," (1
Timothy 41-2)

Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
Pelagius (c. 354 -420) taught that human beings
are born innocent, just as Adam was created.
They inherit no sin from Adam, but sin like Adam.
Only our sins are imputed to us. His views
were condemned by Council of Carthage (416-418)
and opposed by Augustine.
The Creed I Believe in Christs Substitutionary
Death
26
Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
From the Fourth Century, Augustinian thought
stressed the doctrine of the depravity of man and
the nature of evil as a privation of the good
that God originally created. This influence
continued all the way up to the period of the
reformation (1400-1500s)
The Creed I Believe in Christs Substitutionary

27
Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
Martin Luther defended the doctrine of depravity
during the Reformation period against one chief
rival Erasmus and his Christian humanism
teaching that began to elevate the nature of man
beyond his depraved state. Luther and the
reformers were successful against Erasmus.

Death
28
Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
Jacob Arminius (1560-1609), one of the reformers,
taught that all people are born depraved and
cannot on their own power obey God. Humans are
born with a bent toward sin and cannot avoid
physical death. Ones own sin ratifies Adams
sin, but Adams sin is not imputed to us. We are
in Adam potentially or seminally. The image of
God is effaced in man.
The Creed I Believe in Christs Substitutionary

29
Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
Moderate Calvinism teaches that we inherit a
judicial guilt from Adam and we are legally
connected to him Adams sin is imputed to us.
All humans apart from salvation suffer spiritual
death and will face physical and eternal death.
But in order for Gods grace to overcome
depravity, there must be a cooperation between
the free will of man and God. The image of God is
effaced in man, but he can respond to God.

Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
Strong Calvinism teaches that we inherit a
judicial guilt from Adam and we are legally
connected to him Adams sin is imputed to us.
All humans apart from salvation suffer spiritual
death and will face physical and eternal death.
Man cannot cooperate with God rather God
delivers irresistible grace against mans will
and saves him. The image of God is erased in man
he cannot respond to God on his own.

A Quick Critique of Strong Calvinism
"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets
and stones those who are sent to her! How often I
wanted to gather your children together, the way
a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you
were unwilling."(Matthew 2337) "You men who
are stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and
ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit you
are doing just as your fathers did."(Acts 751)

Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
The Renaissance (rebirth or revival) of the
14th 17th centuries elevated man to the center
of reality instead of God. A century later, the
Enlightenment arrived and it pushed mankinds
reason and man himself to full center stage.
Gone was the thought of depravity. Modernity
stressed reason and ruled out revelation.

Brief History of the Depravity Doctrine
Today, sin is out and the sinner has become a
patient to be secularly treated. Abraham Maslow,
the famous American psychologist, said, As far
as I know we just don't have any intrinsic
instincts for evil. Echoing his statement is
Carl Rogers who, along with Maslow is credited
with being the founder of the humanist approach
to psychology, said, I do not find thatevil is
inherent in human nature

35
The usual moral distinctions between good and
bad are simply drowned in a maudlin emotion in
which we feel more sympathy for the murderer than
for the murdered, for the adulterer than for the
betrayed, and in which we have actually begun to
believe that the real guilty party, the one who
somehow caused it all, is the victim, and not the
perpetrator of the crime. Robert Fitch
The Creed I Believe in Christs Substitutionary

36
For several decades, we psychologists looked
upon the whole matter of sin and moral
accountability as a great incubus, and acclaimed
our liberation from it as epoch-making. But at
length we have discovered that to be free from
sin is also to have the excuse of being sick,
rather than being sinful. We are in danger of
becoming lost. This danger is, I believe,
betokened by the widespread interest in
existentialism, which we are presently
witnessing. In becoming amoral, ethically
neutral, and free, we have cut the very roots of
our being, lost our deepest sense of selfhood and
identity, and with neurotics themselves find
ourselves asking, "Who am I? What is my deepest
destiny? - Hobart Mowrer onetime President of
the American Psychological Society

Gross takes his reader back to 1941 when the
Nazis rolled into the town of Jedwabne where
Poles and Jews had been peacefully living side by
side for many years. Once the Germans arrived,
the Poles asked the simple question Is it
permitted to kill the Jews? Summarizing parts of
Grosss book in a 2001 Newsweek article, George
Will states, A head was hacked off and kicked
around. To escape the killers, women fled to a
pond and drowned their babies, then themselves.
But most were burned alive in a barn while the
town was searched for the surviving sick and
children. A witness As for the little children,
they roped a few together by their legs and
carried them on their backs, then put them on
pitchforks and threw them onto smoldering
coals. Will ends his article by answering the
question that was on everyones mind So, again
Why in Jedwabne did neighbors murder their
neighbors? Because it was permitted. Because they
could.

throat is an open grave, With their tongues they
keep deceiving, The poison of asps is under
their lips Whose mouth is full of cursing and
bitterness Their feet are swift to shed blood,
Destruction and misery are in their paths, And
the path of peace they have not known. There is
no fear of God before their eyes." (Romans
