Question Every Religious Man About His Sin"Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things." - Romans 2:1
More than once this summer I have spoken to religious men who have questioned the sufficiency of God's grace to save sinners.
Their seemingly righteous judgment is that God hates and judges sin, and if they continue to sin once saved, then God will spew them out of his mouth.
"Sin must be condemned! It must be judged!"
Amen! Down with sin! Away with sinners! This is why Christ died after all. The religious men are right. God must judge sin.
But don't let your religious friend get away with his judgment without first putting him to the same test. Here is how you start:
"Do you sin?"
When asked this question the religious man will spit and sputter and make excuses. All religious men are closet sinners. They must hide or diminish their sin to maintain their religious facade of judgment against it.
Have you ever had a thought of foolishness? Not done good when you know you should? Not loved God with all your heart? Ever walked a moment in your flesh or not by faith?
It is impossible for the religious person to avoid his own sin, and as such become a victim of his own righteous condemnation of sin.
Religion is only good for making manifest sinners (Rom 3:20). When you meet a religious man, put him to his own religious test until he admits he also sins and needs Christ to save him by his grace. This is what the law taught.
A man's religion is sufficient to condemn him. God's grace is sufficient to save him.
For Grace and Truth,
