The Good News
The Curse of Sin
To understand the Gospel (the good news) you must first recognize the problem. We are all born sinners.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God…” (Romans 3:23)
“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10)
The very best that humans can do cannot meet God’s perfect standard.
“…every man at his best state is altogether vanity…” (Psalms 39:5)
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags…” (Isaiah 64:6)
