Scriptures: Romans 3:23, 3:10-11, Psalm 51:5
One of the things that is common to us all is that we were all born with a sin nature--the tendency to do what is wrong instead of what is right. Sin is a serious matter. If you are not a follower of Christ, sin is the roadblock between you and eternal life. For the believer, sin saps the joy from your relationship with God and drives a wedge between you and Him. The first step toward a relationship with God is to realize that we are all sinners.
"If you are not a follower of Christ, I want you to understand you have no chance of having a relationship with God or going to heaven when you leave this earth unless you recognize there is a roadblock called 'sin' that must be dealt with." --Dr. Merritt
