On the Other Roman’s Road 6

Romans 3:1-8, ” 1What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision? 2Much in every way! First of all, they have been entrusted with the very words of God.
 3What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God’s faithfulness? 4Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written:
   “So that you may be proved right when you speak
      and prevail when you judge.”
5But if our unrighteousness brings out God’s righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.) 6Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world? 7Someone might argue, “If my falsehood enhances God’s truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?” 8Why not say—as we are being slanderously reported as saying and as some claim that we say—”Let us do evil that good may result”? Their condemnation is deserved.”

I remember that there was a time when people of the faith lived as holy lives as possible on Sunday, but on every other day of the week they sinned like professionals. They believed that more sin meant more grace. This movement didn’t survive in its original form because Satan won his tug-of-war and he pulled them into sin and more sin. That particular school of thought still exists today, repackaged into acceptance and tolerance. Still, all people are unrighteous.
