Only when we have faith do we truly fulfill the law. Rom 3:9-31


Romans 3 opened with this statement, “then what’s the advantage of being a Jew?” To the Jew-hating racist, this rant is a part of their bye-laws. It is obvious that chapter three opens in the middle of a conversation and … Continue reading

When Gentiles, who do not have the law… Romans 2: 12-21.
