II. The Penalty of Sin is Death – (God’s Justice requires a payment for sin.)
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” [More II]
III. God’s Holiness requires perfection – (God’s Holiness cannot tolerate sin.)
Revelation 21:27 “And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” [More III]
IV Man cannot earn perfection – (We cannot make ourselves PERFECT) *
Ephesians 2:8,9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast.” [More IV]
*(We are not saved by good works, but to do good works.)
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
