The Trek Thru Romans - Day 2
What do you think? Do we need a Savior? For those folks who think, "No, we just need some help," Chapter two is for you. St. Paul would call you the “law keepers”, people trying to prove they are good. They don’t generally murder folks, etc. In his day, they were Jewish people. In our day it is mostly church-goers. Yup, this chapter is for us church-goers.
Read Romans 2 and then my thoughts below.
Have you kept God’s law perfectly? Have you fallen short in one area? We sin, but Christ can cleanse even the filthiest heart. Will you come to Him?
So what’s your answer?

- How do people try to hide the truth of God that has been clearly revealed to them?
- What types of people do we often find ourselves being judgmental against as Christians? How does understanding your own human condition and sinfulness help you to not be judgmental?
- Someone might argue if you are not judgmental of people then you are tolerating of or accepting of their sinful lifestyle. What is the difference between being non-judgmental and accepting of someone’s sinful lifestyle? Is it possible for someone to be non-judgmental but also stand on the truth of God’s Word? Explain.
- Based on your study of Romans so far, how would you answer someone who says that they can be right with God by keeping the Law or being a good person?
