This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 3 — Romans 2:1-16
Study 3 From The Book of Romans Is: 2:1-16
1.What four things are said about
God’s judgement in verses 22, 6, 11 and 16? What else do you learn about it in
2. By what general test will God judge men? See
verse 7:10. How will this bring condemnation on (a) the self-righteous person,
(b) the Gentile, and (c) the Jew? Why
does God delay the day of wrath?
1.Verses 7 and 10 in no way contradict the truth that salvation
cannot be earned by works. Paul is not dealing at this point with the method of
salvation but with the nature of the test in the Day of Judgment. The test is righteousness
(cf. 1 Jn.3:7, 10). If a man is not righteous in heart and life, he will be
condemned. Later Paul will show that the only way to become righteous in God’s
sight is through faith in Christ.
2.Verses 12-15. The meaning is
that men will be judged by the light they have had. If they have been under the
law of Moses they will be judged by that; if not, they will be judge by the
standards they possess by nature through reason and conscience.
