All Disobey God’s Laws 2 (Roman 3:9-18)
9Well then, should we conclude that we Jews are better than others? No, not at all, for we have already shown that all people, whether Jews or Gentiles, are under the power of sin. 10As the Scriptures say, “No one is righteous—not even one. 11No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. 12All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.” 13“Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongues are filled with lies.” “Snake venom drips from their lips.” 14“Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” 15“They rush to commit murder. 16Destruction and misery always follow them. 17They don’t know where to find peace.” 18“They have no fear of God at all.”
