This is an eight point summary of Paul's gospel as set forth in the letter to the Romans. Here we discover why the majority of Christian leaders were ashamed of Paul's teaching, and so they preached a different gospel--a gospel that evoked God's severity.
In this lesson, we discover that the supreme measure of God's active kindness toward us is manifested in Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection, as well as his contiuning priesthood. We also learn more about how the Spirit continues the ministry of Jesus in the believer by empowering in us divine kindness toward each other, and even our toward enemies.
To grow in the image of Christ, the believer must have a biblical view of the character of God. Too often the kindness of God is emphasized to the exclusion of the severity of God, and vice versa. In this study we examine both the kindness and severity of God and learn toward whom God reserves each.
Sunday School from Central Baptist Church concerning the "goodness & severity" of God. Romans 11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

This is the Thirteenth Sermon in the series Kingdom, Dynasty & Glory; an exposition on the Second Book of Samuel.
This sermon explores the meaning and significance of Romans 3:23, encouraging us to reflect on this familiar verse in greater depth.
This verse is not referring to God's eternal attributes such as his almighty power. In Isaiah 42:8 God declares that "I will not share my glory with another." Even if we never sinned, we could not become like God in this sense.
Instead, the verse is referring to the glory of God's perfect righteousness. God created man in his image, able to enjoy unbroken fellowship with Him. However, since the Fall "There is none good, not one" (Mark 10:18) and we can no longer go into God's presence. All the rituals, sacrifices and laws of the Old Testament were insufficient to restore this relationship.
