The Romans[->0] Road walks you along through the scriptures that Paul wrote to the Romans. In these few passages you can see and explain to an unbeliever everyone’s sinful condition and the remedy through Jesus Christ. It is a road full of hope and inevitably when someone is willing to trade in their own thinking and agree with God, they will see their need for a Savior.
The Problem To apply a remedy you must first admit that there is a problem. Admitting that you are a sinner is the first step on the Romans Road. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden they committed the first sin. Since that time every human has been born with that sin nature.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one

Romans 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:
The Bad News
Because we have sinned God expects a payment (wage) for that sin. The only payment He accepts is death. The place that God has prepared for sinners is called Hell. All human’s destination is Hell because they are all sinners. Death is what we deserve because we owe a debt for our sin.
Romans 6:23a For the wages of sin is death
The Good News:There is good news! God loves us so much that He offered His only begotten Son, Jesus to pay our sin debt for us. This is a gift. The gift is available to every human. When we believe that Jesus died for us to pay our debt, personally, we can have life ETERNALLY. At the moment we believe in what Jesus did on the cross our destination changes from Hell to Heaven when we leave this earth.
Romans 6:23b but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
Such a big promise :A couple more steps on the Romans Road show us more promises from our Heavenly Father.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ...
