By now, it’s impossible to miss Paul’s point: we are sinful people! The blatantly immoral, the self-righteous, and the overly religious are all equally under God’s wrath. Apart from the supernatural work of Christ in our hearts, we have no hope for change and no possibility of relief. To further elaborate, Paul switched roles from that of a prosecuting attorney in a courtroom to that of a medical examiner in a morgue, analyzing his way through the evidence within every human being that “there is none righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10). From a spiritual perspective, humanity is in a state of total wipeout. Apart from God’s redeeming grace, every person who has ever lived is without everlasting hope.
