Romans 2:2 (KJV)
But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
Albert Barnes writes of this verse, “…it is the common and admitted sentiment of mankind. It is known and believed by people generally that God will punish such crimes. It is implied in this declaration that this was known to the Jews, and it was particularly to the purpose of the apostle so to express himself as to include the Jews. …”
Though the book of the Roman is written to believers (see Romans 1:7) in this passage he rhetorically speaks to the man born with Jewish blood and resting in that birth.
Albert Barnes continues, “… Outwardly he might appear well to people; but God searched the heart, and saw the secret as well as the open deeds of people, and they who practiced secretly what they condemned openly, could not expect to escape the righteous judgment of God. God, without respect of persons would punish wickedness, whether it was open, as among the Gentiles, or whether it was concealed under the guise of great regard for religion, as among the Jews.”
We are sure, there can be no doubt, and it is commonly admitted by:
- The Christian
- The Jew and even
- The unsaved Gentile
that there is a judgment of God to come.
Be prepared for that judgment.
