This week we begin to look more closely at Romans 1.16-2.3. People familiar with this passage bristle with discomfort or brandish it as a weapon to judge others. Neither response reflects the aim of Paul's teaching. The truth is anyone can point out sin. The surprise is that there is One who can save us from it (Romans 1.16-17). Reflection on the RUIN we share will always lead those who seek to follow Jesus well to confess and celebrate our Good News Savior who has redeemed us for God ... we will continue to examine this passage next week.
