The Great Reveal: Our Epic Journey Through Time, Space and Eternity – Part 2

How do we ask questions about eternity? We looked at eternity and infinity in the first part of our series and saw that it has no boundaries, no limitations. Time and space are not part of eternity and infinity. So, how do we form good questions about eternity and infinity?

We’ve all heard the phrase “eternity past,” but how can eternity have a past if it has no boundaries? Can we talk about eternity as past or future? Is it better to describe eternity as “always present” as in now? But how do we understand eternity as now when now doesn’t remain now because now becomes past as soon as we think of now?

Romans – The Gospel of God (Part 70)

We are currently looking at Romans 3 as the Apostle Paul asked and answered several questions about accusations against his teaching. They included –

  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s covenant with Israel (3:1-2)
  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s faithfulness (3:3-4)
  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s justice (3:5-6)
  • Paul’s teaching impugns God’s truth (3:7-8)

In the next part of our study we will look at another pair of questions and answers that contain some of the most powerful of God’s accusations against the human race.

Romans – The Gospel of God (Part 69)

What advantage then has the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? Much in every way! Chiefly because to them were committed the oracles of God. For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect? Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written: ‘That You may be justified in Your words, And may overcome when You are judged. But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unjust who inflicts wrath? (I speak as a man.) Certainly not! For then how will God judge the world? For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner? And why not say, ‘Let us do evil that good may come’?—as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just.” Romans 3:1-8

We recently moved into the third chapter of Romans where Paul continued his defense of  God’s righteous judgment. In our last study we looked at the first four verses of Romans 3. We move now to verses 5 – 8.
