Acts 17:16 – 34
Romans 2:1 – 16
Romans 2:1–3 (NKJV)
1Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.
2But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.
3And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?
I Five principles of judgement
- Judment will certainly come.
- Judgment is according to what we actually do, not what we say we are
- Judgment is accoding to facts
- Judgment will be according to the level of knowledge one actually has
- Judgment will be by the Lord Jesus Christ.
