Heidelberg Catechism 9

Q. 9. Does not God then do injustice to man, by requiring from him in his law, that which he cannot perform?

A. Not at all; (a) for God made man capable of performing it; but man, by the instigation of the devil, (b) and his own wilful disobedience, (c) deprived himself and all his posterity of those divine gifts.

(a) Eph 4:24; Eccl 7:29

(b) John 8:44; 2 Cor 11:3; Gen 3:4

(c) Gen 3:6; Rom 5:12; Gen 3:13; 1 Tim 2:13,14
