The Judge is God, the Verdict is:  "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall be no flesh be justified in His sight."  All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.    There is non righteous, no, not one.

In our study of the book of Romans: we learn that all mankind is guilty before God.  All are condemned.

"BUT NOW... Jesus Christ has paid the price for SIN and made possible our SALVATION."
