C. I Corinthians 2:14 A Lost man thinks the Bible is old because
he cannot understand it
D. Romans 7:l4-l8 Lost man thinks he can do something for
God while in the flesh
Example: I Corinthians 15:50 Flesh and blood cannot inherit the
Kingdom of God
Romans 8:8 They that are in the flesh "cannot" please God
Lost people think the opposite of both these verses:
1 . They think their good works will get them into the Kingdom.
2. They think what they are doing religiously is pleasing to God.
E. Romans 2:21 Lost people think that keeping the law will get them to God
NOTE: Romans 3:21 " BUT NOW" without the law
F. Galatians 4:21 Lost people never hear what the law says
NOTE: Romans 3:19 Every mouth be stopped, all the world
may become guilty before God

will save them and give them Eternal Life
NOTE: Romans 6:23 Eternal Life is a Gift

when they know they are lost and trust Christ to their salvation
NOTE: I Corinthians 15: l - 4 Paul himself received the Gospel
of Christ and knew the day he received salvation
I. Colossians 2:13 Lost people are always confessing their sins never
really believing that their sins were already forgiven
NOTE: Ephesians 1:7 and Colossians 1:14---"Forgiveness"
J. II Timothy 1:12 Lost people do not have the persuasion of salvation because they have not
committed their salvation unto the Lord
NOTE: Romans 10:l-3 Had not submitted unto the Righteousness of God.
Romans 1:16-17 The Righteousness of God is revealed
in the Gospel of Christ
NOTE: If the Gospel of Christ is hid it is hid to them that are
Lost. For without God's Righteousness man cannot inherit the
Kingdom of God nor can man please God.

not impute sin unto them---Romans 4:6-8
