– DIFFICULTIES – 12:1

– DECAY – 12:2-6

– DEATH – 12:7

– DEARTH – 12:8

BETTER QUESTION:  HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE IN MAN?”

1-  THEY DON’T LIKE THE WAY THINGS WOULD BE.

– RESPONSIBILITY – 13

– RULING – 14

ROMANS 1 EXPLAINS THIS, WITH ANOTHER IMPORTANT LIST.

2 EVIDENCES WE ALL HAVE:  1)  CREATION (19-20)   2) CONSCIENCE (21)
