Romans 2:1-29, NLT
God’s Judgment of Sin
1You may think you can condemn such people, but you are just as bad, and you have no excuse! When you say they are wicked and should be punished, you are condemning yourself, for you who judge others do these very same things.
5But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.
12When the Gentiles sin, they will be destroyed, even though they never had God’s written law. And the Jews, who do have God’s law, will be judged by that law when they fail to obey it.
The Jews and the Law
17You who call yourselves Jews are relying on God’s law, and you boast about your special relationship with him.
21Well then, if you teach others, why don’t you teach yourself? You tell others not to steal, but do you steal?
25The Jewish ceremony of circumcision has value only if you obey God’s law. But if you don’t obey God’s law, you are no better off than an uncircumcised Gentile.
28For you are not a true Jew just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the ceremony of circumcision.
