Character from which source?

When Jesus says to Nicodemus in John 3:6 "Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.", what he's saying is that the character of those born is determined by the source that gives them birth.

To say that sin is necessary to keep us humble is to infer that sin is more powerful than the grace of God.

Prevenient Grace.

Augustine & Calvin - Fallen man is nothing but evil desire, only the elect can be saved, they are saved by God's irresistible grace, grace for salvation is available to them alone.
Pelagius - humankind is born with a natural capacity for choosing good or evil.
Wesley - "Prevenient Grace". Grace available before coming to Christ. Through this grace humans are enabled to choose good, and ultimately by faith to accept God's saving grace. Salvation by grace through faith begins with preventing -or prevenient or enabling - grace, grace which can be resisted by fee will, but if accepted becomes the beginning of the path to salvation. TSA, HOD c 2010. Praise the Lord - that by His prevenient grace...whosoever will may be saved!!!
