Romans 2:1-16
"Called to Repentance"

As we move into Romans 2, we come to a really difficult text to understand in light of what we think we already know.  Is Paul saying what he seems to be saying — that we will each be judged on the basis of what we do?  Understanding what Paul is, and isn’t saying, requires that we grasp the context into which he writes and his larger argument at this point in his letter.  Far from arguing for a works based salvation, Paul is demonstrating that all alike are disadvantaged by sin.
