We live in a culture where most people would say they are "good" or "decent" … and deserving of Heaven. But is being good enough make a person righteous before a Holy God? That's the topic we'll be exploring today as we continue with Paul's letter to the Romans in our new series … City of God. Pastor Mark Jobe says that our culture has swung the pendulum toward viewing God through the lens of love only … and it's almost become a religion of its own … but there's a reality of God's holiness and love that we often overlook … today's Bold Steps message is called, Why Being Religious Can't Save You.
