The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ


“They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not one.” (Ps 14:3 RSV)
“Just as it has been written: “There is none righteous, not one! None understand! None search for The God! All have turned away! They are all together useless! None are kind! Not so much as one!” (Ro 3:10-12 MHM)
“If we should ever state: “I have never sinned, ”we cause ourselves to err and the truth is not in us. Every time we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous so that He might release us from our sins, cleansing us from unrighteousness. Every time we state: “I have never sinned, ”we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.” (1Jo 1:8-10 MHM)
“However, while we were still sinners The God demonstrated His own compassionate affection for us [in that] Christ died in our behalf.” (Ro 5:8 MHM)
“He bore our sins in his body upon the Tree, so that we might discontinue sin and live in righteousness. “By his wounds you were healed.”” (1Pe 2:24 MHM)
“He entered the world of humankind, and the Cosmos came into existence by his agency, but the world of humankind did not recognize him. He came to his own, but his own did not accept him.” (Joh 1:10-11 MHM)
“But, to everyone who did accept him he authorized to become children of God, because they believed in his name. These were born, not from blood–that is, from a fleshly desire, or a male desire–but from God.” (Joh 1:12-13 MHM)
“But, we are aware that the synergy of The God is for the good of those loving The God, to those who have been invited according to His purpose.” (Ro 8:28 MHM)
“For the payment for sin is death; but, the gracious gift of The God [is] everlasting life incorporate in Christ Jesus our Master.” (Ro 6:23 MHM)
