Grace to you and peace from God our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
In another place in Romans, it is written that the wages of sin is death. There is not a single person who is alive or who ever lived that isn’t under the condemnation of that verdict from the hand of God. Sin still corrupts the world today, just as it did in Jesus’ day. Sin in men, caused the death of others - some we today call heroes. Even the heroes were not perfect, they too were sinners.
