Now, we tackle the second chapter of this beautiful epistle. Pablo will teach us that as well as the infidels were pointed out how guilty before God (1:18-32), also they are equal of those culprits who live morally well. We call these persons “moralists“, those that normally are thinking about without being “so bad persons” like others. About these it is said that:
- They condemn the sin of others, but they deny his (v.3).
- They apologize because they think that the sins that we had mentioned in the previous chapter, seem more serious and condemnable than theirs to them. East can be a good argument before the men but it is a thought very different from the truth that God will use when it judges them (v.2, 16). Their error takes root in comparing its sin with of the others but not with the God's holiness.
- They end up by hardening its heart and despise God, pushing back its pardon (v.4, 5).
- Finally, Pablo is going to appeal to its interior judge, the conscience (v.14-15). Our conscience has been given us by God. This one accuses us when we sin and the Holy Spirit uses it for redargüirnos of sin (Ro. 9:1).
On the March:
The beginning that we learn in this passage is the following one: "The best of the men is the sufficiently good thing before the God's eyes”
Do we believe that it is worse to say a rude word than to show an indifferent attitude? To beat than to speak contemptuously or to murmur? To kill that to disobey? Before God we all are guilty of sin.
Therefore, the Word up cheers us to stop judging some others to us. Instead of that, we must pay attention to our own lives. Here we leave to you nine reasons that the passage offers not to judge the others.
