Defenseless Romans 3:9 – 20

Paul addresses a third group in the Roman church – one that did not identify primarily with either Jew or Gentile. Paul is quick to point out that even THEY are guilty before God. There is no group that can claim a superior standing with God. Paul builds to a crucial point in his presentation – but first needs to demonstrate that every last one of us is without any defense before God. Look how thoroughly we are defenseless!
