    It is through Christ’s mediation that the names of God’s people are retained in the book of life (Rev. ).

And God, since He is a God of righteousness, must react against unrighteousness. In the Bible that reaction is called “wrath.” Man’s response to God presents a miserable picture indeed. Romans 3 quotes from the Old Testament to show that every one of us has done what Romans 1 says. We have not worshipped God. We have not feared : Ivan Bowden.
