The Reprobate Core

by rRandyP

The reprobate core is a composite concept derived from the notion that the fallen human elements of reprobate mind, (continual/only) vain imagination, deceitful (above all things) heart, old creature/new creature, spiritual darkness or death, fleshly or sin nature and original sin all speak essentially of the same spiritual thing. The attempt is to bring a conceptual consistency to our understanding of the contextual consistency of the Bible and man's role in it.

The reprobate mind is similar if not the same as the carnal mind, the deceitful heart, the vain imagination, the darkened mind, and other assorted references throughout. carnal mind heart imagination darkness wisdom wise fool idol. It can also be found in the religious kjv@Titus:1:16 except the truer image be found in Christ kjv@2Corinthians:13:5.

It is clearly indicated throughout the entire context of the Bible that God has made His true image known perceptually by creation kjv@Romans:1:19-20, kjv@John:5:39 by scripture, kjv@John:14:9 by His Son, kjv@John:15:26 by His Spirit. kjv@Galatians:3:24 indicates that God has morally legislated against this nature in order to prove both it's inescapable existence via the Law and man's complete inability to solve the maze issues without Him and His correct image in totality.

It is from the conceptual discernment of this composite reprobate core that we begin to see an underlying consistency throughout the Bible text as to why we are what we are, as to why Jesus had to do what He did in the manner that He did it, as to why we react to His person in the desperate and deprived manner which we do.

Furthermore, this composite conceptualization give us both a consistent reasonable and scriptural explanation as to why the many destructive manifestations of our true nature can not be sufficiently addressed other than in Christ Jesus and a consistent scriptural means of application addressing all of these natures as a whole.

    We assume the following inner workings of the reprobate context:
  1. The reprobate core seeks to minimize/justify the scope impact and brevity of it's destructive traits.
  2. The reprobate core seeks to separate/compartmentalize destructive traits from their one true source.
  3. The reprobate core is given over to a peculiar spiritual form of vanity by the deficient image it holds of God.
  4. The reprobate core is incapable of addressing the destructive trait or it's underlying cause successfully.
  5. It is only in the accurate reflection of God the Father, redeeming and sanctifying blood of Jesus Christ, and His promise to create within us a new spiritual creature that the root cause is addressed.
