Romans 2:12-16

12All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law.13For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14(Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, 15since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.) 16This will take place on the day when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

Just Do It!!

People are condemned not for what they don't know, but for what they do with what they know. Those who know God's written Word and his law will be judged by them. Those who have never seen a bible still know right from wrong, and they will be judged accordingly.

Let's face it, we belong to a stubborn society we want to have it our own way. We know what's right, but we insist on doing what's wrong. This passage simply tells me, I need to KNOW what is right, and live it out, JUST DO IT!!!

There are consequences for doing it MY way.
