Romans 10:1-4

Christianity is not for good men, nor is for the noble and the upright—that’s what they’ll become if Christ saves them, but before that glorious event, “...foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another”.  How is such a one to ever climb out of the cesspit of his iniquity and to set his hands on the rungs of the latter up to heaven and when he gets there to present his sin-stained pitiful state before the presence of the Holy God before whom angels dare to cast their sight?  Either God gives us in mercy what we do not possess, namely righteousness, or we’re doomed for all eternity!!  What saith “euangelion”? “For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost” (Lk. 19:10).
