Paul carefully begins to share the wonderful good news about what God has done to create the Pathway of Hope. He does this by sharing what sounds like bad news; but he is acting much like a doctor would – explaining the severity of the problem so that the cure is seen to be so incredibly needed and precious. Paul shares with us how desperate man’s condition truly is. Mankind is NOT basically good! Mankind has placed itself in line to receive God’s wrath by denying His revelation to them. Paul explains how God’s wrath and truth are revealed and how man has rejected God’s truth.
