Back to Romans


Romans 2:17-29
The Jews, on the other hand, have this whole system of law and an air of compliance and still break their law. They have misunderstood God's calling for them to be a light to the nations and instead think themselves to be superior to them. They also dishonor God and cause the nations to blaspheme because of their hypocrisy and disregard for the law. The "Circum-system" is meaningless if it doesn't work. Those not under it look pretty good if they live righteously and they naturally extend that view of righteousness to look down on those who have the law and stumble. God's nation and God's system are not fleshly and external but of the heart and the Spirit.

I recently began re-writing scripture in my own words too. It somehow forces me to make what I read more applicable.
