Study Notes for Lesson #12 of Romans

“Judge Not – Condemn Not”


Galatians 4:16  -  Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?




The sin of mankind from Romans Chapter 1 that brings

“The Righteous Judgment and Wrath of God”


[1]  Rejection of God, and professing themselves wise they became fools 

[2]  Unthankfulness  [3]  Changed worship of God to idol worship  [4]  Dishonoring the human body by taking on vile (impure, shameful, extremely wicked) affections and  uncleanness:  lesbianism and homosexuality (same sex relations) and other sexual perversions  [5]  Chose reprobate (sinful, morally depraved and perverse) minds  [6]  fornication (including adultery)  [7]  Wickedness (practicing evil - pernicious)  [8]  Covetousness (lust for gain belonging to others  [9]  Maliciousness (extreme hatred to injure or harm others without provocation  [10]  Full of envy  [11]  Murder (hating others and killing without justification  [12]  Debate (contentious strife and argument  [13]  Deceit (fraud or misleading; cheating)  [14]  Malignity (extreme hatred without cause; destructive heinousness)  [15]  Whisperers (gossipers)  [16]  Backbiters (false accusers; slanderers)  [17]  Haters of God  [18]  Despiteful (hateful, rude, lack of respect)  [19]  Proud; Boasters (arrogant, conceited, haughty)  [20]  Inventors of evil things  [21]  Disobedient to parents  [22]  Without understanding (no study of God's Word  [23]  Covenant-breakers (contract breakers; untrustworthy) [24]  Without natural affection (all types of ungodly sexual deviations)  [25]  Implacable (unforgiving, stubborn, irreconcilable hatred or anger)  [26]  Unmerciful (cruel, inhumane)  [27]  Continue to commit the above sins, knowing they make one worthy of death, they take pleasure in doing them, and applaud others who also do them.


Romans 2:2  -  But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.


1 Corinthians 6:9-10  -  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, [10]  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

                                                                                                                              1 Corinthians 5:1 (KJV) - It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. 

1 Corinthians 5:1 (CJB) - It is actually being reported that there is sexual sin among you, and it is sexual sin of a kind that is condemned even by pagans - a man is living with his stepmother! 


Romans 2:4  -  Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?


1 Corinthians 6:11  -  And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.


Am I your enemy because I tell you the truth?       (based on Galatians 4:16)


John 8:32  -  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.


1 John 1:9  -  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.



Denouncing the sin is an aspect of loving the sinner; this is what enables the sinner to repent, be forgiven, and change.  All of this can be done compassionately and effectively...”

Ezekiel 3:18  -  When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.


Mark 16:15 & 20  -  Jesus said ...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature...And they went forth, and preached every where...
