Paul's Epistle to the Philippians Chapter 3:9
(10 of 16)
Harley Howard

Again the judicial understanding of declared
righteousness is the key, and this is brought out most
fully by Paul. Following the teaching of Christ, Paul
explains that no one seeking to be righteous by the
works of the law can be justified in God’s sight,
since everyone is a sinner and has fallen short of
God’s righteous standard.

Romans 3:9-10

9 What then? are we better [than they]? No, in no

justification of sinners

Romans 3:21-26

22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of
