Why is it...

Why is it that "Christians" want to talk so much about Romans chapter one but never talk about Romans chapter two in the Bible? 

If you take the time to read it pay close attention to the first word of the first verse as you begin to read chapter two. Also count how many times that same word appears in that one verse.

Here let me get you started...

You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Romans 1:2

But don't stop there keep reading. The truth can be hard to face sometimes but it is the path to freedom! 

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”John 8:32

Bitter people carry the biggest rocks!

When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
“No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”
John 8:7-11

Question - What would Jesus need to write on the ground that would make you drop your rock?

See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. Hebrews 12:15

How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. Luke 6:42

God never called us to be fruit inspectors, he called us to be fruit bearers!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

May we learn to live and speak and act like Jesus the Christ - after all that's what it really means to be a "Christian"!

May we learn to live with the same compassion for others that Jesus the Christ has shown us!

And if need be may we discover the love and grace of Jesus the Christ in our own lives!
