Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

The interesting thing is that you can have a regenerated person that goes back to live a sinful life, and an unregenerated unbeliever that lives a moral life. Outwardly, the unbeliever can appear to...

Re: Does the Bible say we are Sinners?

"Evil" is pretty close to "sinner" or worse:

Matt. 7:11 So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who...

Re: Pasadena Conference 1988--My Notes of Brother Lee's Speaking
