Question (3:5, 7-8a) – God should not condemn Jew or enhancing God’s glory
If God does great things when I mess up shouldn’t I mess up more so he can look better? And if he still does good things how can he judge them as wrong?
Answer (3:6, 8b) – Then God could not judge anyone
If God could not judge evil things that he turns to good than he could not judge anything or anyone because everyone is bad and everything turns to glorify him; some people were accusing Paul of teaching “cheap grace” or grace that was not earned but freely unconditionally given but Paul says that their slanderous words are not true.
The Charge for both Jews and Gentiles is that all are under sin (3:9)
Although God has promised the Jews certain things, salvationally, they are no better off than anyone else; they too are sinners
Every human being is sinful and that no one understand his depravity or seeks God; People can do exterior things that look good but it is still sin because it is not done out of fiath or with the intetion of giving God the glory; Paul is quoting Ps. 14:1-3, 53:1-3
The nature of man’s sin is depravity both in speech and deed (3:13-17)
Every human being is wicked in their speech; our words can cause death as indicatied by death in a ghrave and venom as asps; Paul is quoting Ps. 5:9, Ps. 140:3, Ps. 10:7
Their deeds also cause death and misery and ruin; they don’t know how to bring about peace; Paul is quoting Prov. 1:16, 3:15-17, Isa 59:7-8
The source (reason of man’s sin is no fear of God(3:18)
Not honoring God is the cause of all this; a lack of belief that God will ultimately judge us in his life or the next leads people to do whatever they want or whatever they feel is right and not what God says is right; Paul is quoting Ps 36:1
