Judged According to Truth
A Sermon on Romans 2:1
God's Righteous Judgment
Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. (ESV)
It is easy to identify sin in other people but rationalize our own sin! That is the very problem of the Jews that Paul explains in Romans 2:1. This sermon by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones warns us to be careful on passing judgement on others because the same measure will be used on us. The Doctor walks through the condemnation of sin and how this gospel applies to everyone. Both the Jews and the Gentiles are without excuse and in danger of God's wrath. We may even see severe sins explained in the law and feel that condemnation does not apply to us since we are not “that bad”, but instead Paul warns that God’s judgement is always based on truth and His standard never changes. No one can measure up to that standard on their own and it is only by the gospel that Paul is preaching to the Romans that can save us, Christ has brought salvation to us! Instead of putting the condemnation on others and their sin, we should turn our eyes to the truth of the Lord and make sure we are always aligning our truth with God’s truth.
