Rom 2:12 Rom 2:12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; Who are those who have sinned without the Law? Who are those who have sinned in the Law? 1Co 9:20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; 1Co 9:21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. Mt 10:15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. Mt 11:24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee.
Rom 2:13 Rom 2:13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. 14 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15shew the work of the law written in their hearts, 15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) Two Chapters of Romans and Two reasons why Mankind is without excuse before God in judgement. 1.Creation - Romans 1:18-22 2.Conscience - Judeans and Gentiles both have law. 16 16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Rom 2:25 circumcision Rom 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? (not possible but hypothetically) 27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law? 28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: the spiritthe letter 29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. Its not your birth and its not what you have done!!!
Its not your birth and its not what you have done, circumcision or keeping the Law !!! 1. Its not the external rites of religion, but the state of the heart. 2. We must die to self and put on Christ for holiness of heart and life. 3. The mere fact that we are born of Christian parents will not save us. 4. No external rite will save us. Baptism will not save us. 5. A mere profession of religion, however orthodox may be our creed, will not save us. 6. Our outward is not the proper measure of our true character and standing.
7. It is a privilege to be in possession of the word of God, and to know our duty. Ec 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 8. It is also a fearful thing to neglect the privileges which we enjoy. We shall be judged according to the light which we have; and it will be an awful event to go to eternity from a Christian environment unprepared. 9. The most wicked of the heathen may meet a far milder doom than many who are externally moral, or who profess Christianity. It is the duty of every individual to be at peace with God, and to flee from the wrath to come.
Rom 3:1 circumcision? Rom 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? 2 2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. 3 3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 justified overcome 4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. Circumcision Ro 3:30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
blessedness faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. Ro 4:9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. How was it then reckoned? Ro 4:10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. Gen 15 Gen 17 he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: Ro 4:11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: Gal 3:6,7,14,16,29 Ro 4:12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised. Gen 12:1-3 The blessedness or blessing comes through FAITH!
Gen 15:4 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. 5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. 6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. What do you have to believe for it to be counted to you for righteousness? Gen 17:9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. 10 This
