The Religious Man
Bible References: Romans 2:17 – 3:18
The Religious Man has the law, he knows the law. He claims a special relationship with God. He knows God’s will. He knows how he should live. Yet he rejects the truth by doing the very things he preaches against. He will dishonour and break the law of God. He refuses to apply Scripture to his own life (Ch 3 of Romans) but claims he has a special relationship with God.
These three types of people are not going to make it to heaven. We can’t make it to heaven ourselves. In the end we are all sinners and we all fall short of the glory of God.
Simple: misses the point
Educated: over analyises
Reglious: know it all but is busy critizing others and misses the point in his own life.
The point? All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We ALL need Jesus.
