A good starting place for those seeking Christ and to understand the true Gospel, also for the new believer and anyone who wants a better understanding of the depth of man’s sin.
This course presents the student with a thorough description of the depth of man’s sin, his total ruin, and his utter hopeless condition apart from the Savior. A detailed explanation of Romans 1: 16 - 32 is used to catalogue these sins and the downward spiral in which natural man finds himself: spiritual death separated from God.
The last portion of the course is devoted to the living hope we have in Christ, the perfect unmerited substitute provided by God out of His love for us. We see that God’s justice and righteousness requires a penalty for sin, that man is incapable of paying for it himself apart from his own death, that a perfect substitute was provided in the shed blood of Christ at the cross, that man must be given holiness in order to stand before God, and that Christ’s holiness is the only answer for us. The course ends with a short overview of all that Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice provides for us.

“This was a very troublesome study to contemplate. No man likes to face the truth. Thank you for the opportunity to face the unrighteousness still in my life and to do something about it—to better apply God’s Word to my life. This study has done wonders for me!” - Corcoran, California
