Here's an excerpt from the text that Joe read on Tuesday...

"So when you, a mere man, pass judgment
on them and yet do the same things, do you
think you will escape God's judgment?"
(Romans 2:3)

The apostle Paul was confronting the Christian "Posers"; people who say they follow Christ but with hearts haven't been changed from the inside-out.

Great news, though! Paul says in a another letter that if we try to get to God by keeping his commandments, we'll fail miserably and come under the curse of God's judgment.

But Paul quickly follows with,

"Christ Redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us."
(Galatians 3:13)

Jesus really died for real sinners who really need to be rescued from the real judgment we really deserve!

Stay posted for some thoughtful questions for application and details on this Sunday's cookout later this week...
