Romans 2:1-11 Vindication of God's Wrath

Our old Baptist brother John Gill considered this chapter a “vindication of the justice and equity of the divine procedure against men, … concluding that such, be they who they will, Jews or Gentiles, are inexcusable … that the judgment of God, in the condemnation of them, is right … cannot possibly be escaped.” Just as with the promised second coming of Christ, there are some who say since it’s delayed (Christ’ return or His judgment on sin), it must not be real. This is another evidence of the unrighteous suppressing their knowledge of the Truth. The covenant with Noah gives even reprobates seed time and harvest, but that kind provision of God will cease when this age is brought to an end by the glorious return of Christ Jesus.
