Key Passage: Romans 3:9-3:20

The Accusation

  • Everyone is under the power of sin
    • Romans 3:9

The Evidence

  • Who we are
    • Romans 3:10-12
    • See how many times Paul uses “no one” and “all”.
    • achreioō (Greek: χρειω) – Worthless, to render useless, i.e. spoil:—become unprofitable.
  • What we say
    • Romans 3:13-14
    • James 3:8
    • Deceit (imperfect tense) = never a time that we aren’t practicing deceit.
  • How we live
    • Romans 3:15-17
    • We don’t know the way of peace.

The Reason:

  • “No fear of God…”
    • Romans 3:18

The Conclusion:

  • “…every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God.”
    • Romans 3:19
  • “Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law…”
    • Romans 3:20

Only through Jesus

  • He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. – 2 Corinthians 5:21
