All those under the law will be declared righteous. It says so in Romans 2. What law is Paul talking about?
In Romans 2:13, Paul says that those who obey the law will be declared righteous. Well, if we’re no longer under the law, then what in the world is Paul talking about here? What law?
What Law is Paul Talking About?
Some thoughts on Romans 2.
We always affirm that salvation is by faith alone, but what about works?
6He will render to each one according to his works: 7to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; 8but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. (ESV)
These kinds of verses always make me think. If we’re saved by faith, then why all this talk about judgment of our works? I think, for me, it’s pretty clear. We will be judged on the things we do. Our faith will save us, but we must do what we’ve been called to do.
