All Men Are Sinful.



Why do all men need to be saved?

[NOTE: In doing these worksheets, take time to look up all the verses that are listed even if you think you know the answer.  It is important to look at the verse, even if you have already read and looked at the verse scores of times.  Don't say to yourself, "I already know that verse."  Instead say, "I need to know that verse better. Lord, teach me. Show me something I've never seen before."  Read the verses carefully and always find your answer in the verse. In this way you will learn exactly what the Bible teaches. The question that you should constantly be asking yourself is this: "WHAT SAITH THE SCRIPTURE?" – see Romans 4:3]
