  • Jeff T. on Proverbs 3
    Someone asked the question in these comments 'how did the gospel ever come about since everyone or all were sinning? '. The Gospel is the good news of salvation that is offered to all. It is offered from God and not man. Yes, the 'all have sinned ' refers to all men, and 'all have sinned and come short of the glory of God '. The 'Gospel ' is the good news that we do not have to pay for our sin. Jesus died to pay for our sins, therefore He is the source of the Gospel, which thankfully has nothing to do with 'sinful ' mankind. However, we are charged to spread the 'Gospel ' and the fact that we are all sinners in no way stops us from doing so, nor does it change the message of this good news.
