The Message Of Salvation To All

6 But the righteousness which results from faith finds expression in these words--'Do not say to yourself "Who will go up into heaven?"'--which means to bring Christ down--' 7 Or "Who will go down into the depths below?"'--which means to bring Christ up from the dead. 8 No, but what does it say? 'The Message of Faith' which we proclaim.
