<080> Thesis: In order to maintain theological accuracy regarding the Gospel, one must be sure that the context of Romans 2:1-16 is maintained for its impact upon the statements made. Introduction: In our study last week we looked into Paul's claim that those who mis-apply the kindness of God are stacking up negative divine reactions -- as if there was a storehouse in which those reactions are being stored -- in view of the "Day". Men tend very strongly to think that "kindness" means "validation", whereas the truth is that "kindness" means one is being given time to "repent". This evening we are going to look further into Paul's claim that God has set a "day" for the execution of Justice upon His creation.
