Man is sinful through his stubborn self-will and cannot on his own, despite his good works or
philosophy, have fellowship with a Holy God. Sin cannot come within the presence of God.
Salvation cannot be earned or is simply a state of mind.
"Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and never sins."
"...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,..." (Romans 3:23)
