The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favorite movies.
Recently I noticed that Andy Naselli used this clip to illustrate a key theological concept. Before God saved us we were not “mostly dead.” We were not simply near death, but still able to respond to Christ’s call. We were “all dead“–unable to respond. We were “by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind… dead in… trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:3c, 1).
