Romans 2:1

Posted by Anthony Crumley

Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things.

It is a common belief that people who are good and moral in this life will surely be accepted by God.  He would not condemn a moral person to hell, would He?  The thinking is that their morality justifies them before God.

Yet, the truth is that their morality actually condemns them.  By agreeing with God’s law at any point we show knowledge of His law and become responsible for all of it.  Then when we break His law at any point we are condemned by it.  When we say someone’s act of murder is wrong, we condemn ourselves at every point that we break God’s law, even though we never commit murder.

The only way a person can become acceptable to God is by believing on Jesus Christ, His Son, who alone has fulfilled the law at every point.  Jesus took upon Himself our sins so that we can be made acceptable to God by His righteousness.  He died on the cross for us so that we can live through Him.
