Romans 2 : 12-16

"For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel." (Romans 2:12-16)

Discussion Questions:

1.  In Romans 2:11, Paul writes that "there is no partiality with God."  How is this the case when he points out in verse 12 that Gentiles will "perish without law" and Jews "will be judged by the law?"  Is that fair?  Explain.

2.  How do nature and human conscience relate to the law and the judgment of God?

3.  How do you witness or evangelize?  What do these verses suggest that our witness/evangelism should be like?
