ROMANS CHAPTER 2 AGAIN LAST SUNDAY AT RIVERS OF JOY BAPTIST CHURCH

Romans 2:6-10) God will judge the moralist because their works also fall short of God's perfect standard.

Charles E. Whisnant, Pastor/Teacher: May 16, 2010

No one should take sin more seriously than the Christian. Paul’s indictment of mankind should ring true in our hearts and cause us to see sin in its more restrained forms. In particular, we should see that the sin of self-righteousness is not just a “Jewish sin.” There may be no greater need in the church of Jesus Christ today than that of a deep conviction of sin in our midst.

When revival breaks out among God’s people, it usually begins with an eye-opening encounter with the depth of our own sin. Paul’s words here are for self-righteous sinners such as ourselves. As we study Paul’s teaching in Romans 2, our goal will be to identify the nature of the belief and behavior which Paul is condemning as sin. We will also seek to isolate the causes and the cure of the sin of self-righteousness. May God open our hearts to comprehend and to respond to His Word.
