Romans 2:12-29 part 2
In his letter to the Romans, Paul was adamant about our position in Christ. We are saved by grace and grace alone. He declared that our status here on earth - social or otherwise - has absolutely no bearing on our position in heaven. This was a hard lesson for the Jews to grasp, as they were taught to regard their status as higher than the lowly Gentiles around them. Having an air of superiority is a completely inappropriate thing for a Christian. We know that we are sinners saved by grace!
