Our Broken World #5

March 25, 2018 Speaker: Keith Ferguson Series: Our Broken World

Scripture: Romans 3:9–3:20

Sermon Outline

Why does Paul spend 3 chapters making sure we understand sin?
Because a worldview without sin changes the gospel message.
 
What other problems are people trying to fix with the gospel?
 
First, low self-esteem.
Second, sickness and poverty.
Third, bad genes or poor nurturing.
 
Paul summarizes his case about SIN in Romans 3:9-20.
 
The Central Truth: every person is held captive by the power of sin.
(Romans 3:9)
 
The Proof: the whole testimony of Scripture (as it is written)

  • Our hearts seek everything except God (Romans 3:10-12)
  • Our mouths speak destructive words (Roman 3:13-14)
  • Our feet take us straight into conflict (Romans 3:15-17)
  • Our eyes don’t see the true God (Romans 3:18)

 
The Point: we have no excuse to make and no merit to plead.
(Romans 3:19-20)
 
Why is this so important to believe?
