Our Broken World #4
Scripture: Romans 3:1–3:8
Our Objections to the Gospel:
- Objections of the mind
- Objections of the heart
- Objections of the will
Romans 1:18-32 Diagnoses the Spiritual Root of our Brokenness
Romans 2:1-16 Exposes our Universal Guilt before a Holy God
Romans 2:17-29 Reveals the Insufficiency of Religion
Paul answers FOUR objections to his analysis of our broken world:
- If religion can’t reconcile us to God, then what’s the value of the Old Testament Covenants that God made with the Jews?
- Will the unfaithfulness of God’s people nullify God’s faithfulness?
- Is God unjust to inflict wrath on us if our unrighteousness highlights God’s righteousness?
- If you keep preaching that people are saved outside the law, won’t that just excuse sin and immorality?
How do we hold all this together?
At the cross!
