4 - Just and Justifier

Series: The Righteousness of God



September 5, 2022 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes

    As we arrive in Romans 3, the central dilemma animating Paul's gospel is clear. On the one hand, humanity has fallen into sin and corruption and has provoked the righteous indignation of God. On the other hand, God created humanity out of love and does not wish to abandon his creation to destruction. In this session, we explore the solution to this dilemma, which enables God to be "both just and the justifier."
