The Character of God

The Condition of Man

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” - Romans 3:23

“None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” - Romans 2:10-12, bold added

“Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.” - Ecclesiastes 7:20

“We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment.” - Isaiah 64:6

The Condition Of Man


“The LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed, ‘The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and fourth generation.”’ - Exodus 34:5-7

“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.” - Proverbs 17:15

“Far be it from You to do such a thing, to put the righteous to death with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be it from you! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?” - Genesis 18:25

“Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.” - Exodus 23:7

The Divine Dilemma

The Solution

“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God showed His love for us in that while we were yet still sinners, Christ died for us.” - Romans 5:6-8

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over former sins. It was to show His righteousness at the present time, so that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” - Roman 3:23-26
