ABSTRACT
The article discusses the sinfulness of man and the need of God's redemption. It contends that the principles of reason demonstrate the unreasonableness of man's conduct, and states that the consequence of sins is eternal woe and condemnation. It further argues against the fallacy of atheists, philosophers who fail to examine the immorality of the human soul, and infidels. It also explores the importance of Christian faith in knowing the existence of God.
