Repentance and God's Goodness
A Sermon on Romans 2:2-4
We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? (ESV)
Long-suffering considered as a licence to sin; insulting God; God's design in repentance; constraining grace not irresistible; the priority and necessity of repentance.
