All, because of sin, are in need of salvation.
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God."
as it is written, "There is none righteous, not even one;
there is none who understands, there is none who
seeks for God;
all have turned aside, together they have become useless;
There is none who does good, there is not even one."
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is
eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But the Scripture has shut up all men under sin,
that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be
those who believe.
