On the Other Roman’s Road 7

Romans 1:9-20, “9What shall we conclude then? Are we any better? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin. 10As it is written:
   “There is no one righteous, not even one;
    11there is no one who understands,
      no one who seeks God.
 12All have turned away,
      they have together become worthless;
   there is no one who does good,
      not even one.”
 13″Their throats are open graves;
      their tongues practice deceit.”
   “The poison of vipers is on their lips.”
    14″Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.”
 15″Their feet are swift to shed blood;
    16ruin and misery mark their ways,
 17and the way of peace they do not know.”
    18″There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
 19Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.”

We’re all sinful, and now we know that by observing the law we cannot be made right. Nobody is righteous, seeks God, does good, knows the way of peace, or fears God. So how do we get this righteousness?
