"Leave Out Your Beliefs" from Romans 2:17-24

The Jews are said to be in the "high status" because they were the chosen ones and the Messiah came from their blood lines. They also have the law and are boastful of it. But do all of them have the good character?
Remember that it's not all about facts but character counts.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Psalm 147:19 He has revealed his word to Jacob, his laws and decrees to Israel.
20 He has done this for no other nation; they do not know his laws. Praise the LORD.
Anyone who knows the good doesn't do it is = sins.
We have law of God
Psalm 119:99 I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.
100 I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.

"Let's Obey The Lord" from Romans 2:12-16

in the law it is said that
"ignorance of the law excuses no one"

All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.

They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

"God Only Can Judge" from Romans 2:1-5

Romans 2:1 You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgement on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgement do the same things.
whenever you point 1 finger to someone, there are 3 fingers pointing back to you.
for the same way you judge others the same way it will be judge unto you.

Luke 6:37 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
when we are enumerating the mistakes of others, we are looking to ourselves.
the heart is what we should be careful with. do not use scripture to attack unbelievers. ask the Lord to change you.

commit - being performed habitually.

Psalm 36:5-6 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
Those who are quickly to judge others are guilty of so…
