2.) You must realize you are a sinner.
Everyone is born a sinner. This is because the first humans, Adam and Eve were created without sin, however,they sinned against God and we inherited their sinful nature. The evidence of this inherited nature is our own personal sins. We all have taken God's name in vain, lied, stolen, and held hatred in our hearts. Due to this we are guilty and all of mankind is on the road that leads to destruction. "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:" Matthew 7:13
That's correct, unfortunately everyone is on their way to hell until they have been born again.
