If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame.
Proverbs 18:13 (ESV)
...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans 3:23 (ESV)
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23 (ESV)
...but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8 (ESV)
...because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, "Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame." For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Romans 10:9-13 (ESV)
