There Is No Gospel in Romans 2

“God will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life…glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek” (Romans 2:6-7, 10). Is Paul writing that our works are a piece of our righteousness before God? Is he arguing that our works factor into our salvation? Jon and Justin consider the law, the gospel, and the argument of Paul from the early chapters of Romans in today’s episode.

Semper Reformanda: Jon and Justin talk more pointedly about modern commentators and theologians who confuse Romans 2, as well as the dangers and fallout of this confusion.
