Factual Faith - Belief Founded on Truth
Chapter 6: What are the Implications for my Life?
So what are we to do, where do we go from here and what does the Bible say about us and our

Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin;
and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Today we know that God put the Bible together in such a way that we can clearly understand
his attitude towards sin, which is presented to us in the Old Testament. His requirements
however, are far beyond our abilities to keep and therefore we are all falling short. The Bible
also clearly states that no flesh will be justified by keeping the law. In the New Testament God
explains to us how much he loves us and that even though we are not measuring up to his
