The Wrath of God (3 of 47)
Paul up unto this point has developed the theme of the righteousness, which comes from God. This is a theme that Paul later will develop at length in chapters 3:21-5:21. Starting here in verse 18 of chapter one through verse 20 of chapter three, Paul is presents the evidence of mans sinfulness, to help underscore how desperately man needs God's righteousness.
