How are we saved from the condition we are in because of original sin, and from eternal damnation?

There is no possibility that we can be saved through the Law or by our own works. But God has given us another Word, namely His Gospel, in which He has made known to us the salvation, which our Savior Jesus Christ has earned for us. We can receive this salvation for ourselves as a free gift through faith and thus be free from the curse of sin, righteous and blessed in God’s sight. We will learn more about this in the Second Article of the Creed.

Rom. 1:16: The Gospel... is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.

Rom. 10:4: Christ is the end of the Law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
