Scripture text: Romans 2:17 – 3:9        Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland          Date: 13 September 2015 (Evening)

In this evening’s Scripture text the Apostle Paul addresses the religious Jews who falsely believe that they will escape God’s judgement on account of their Jewish identity, their circumcision, and their possession of the law which they are unable to keep. The sermon applies this lesson to the present-day church member who for salvation mistakenly relies on his baptism, his knowledge of the Scriptures and in God’s forbearance, rather than in Christ’s atoning work on the Cross.
