2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God - He will reward every one according to his works. But this is well consistent with his distributing advantages and opportunities of improvement, according to his own good pleasure.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 2:11


Ro 2:11 There is no respect of persons. Greek, as well as Jew, if he works good, shall have the same blessed rewards. Compare Ac 10:34,35. God is impartial in the blessings conferred (see Mt 5:45), as well as in his punishments.

    Verse 21 shows the importance of practicing what we preach in our personal lives.

    The whole passage is directed at people who say they are keeping the law and in reality they are not. The truth be told, no one could keep the law. Those who said they did were not telling the whole truth and they put themselves in a worse position by telling putting down others and not revealing their shame. Bottom line... we all need Jesus and his righteousness, Jesus alone!

    I was watching a tv evangelist on tv a few days ago, and he said 90 pct of Christians have never seen or taken notice of this verse, (and I thought to myself "not me"). then, when I checked the verse Rom 2 vs 16, lo and behold I had never seen that verse before in my life to the best of my knowledge, and yet I have read the whole book cover to cover 24 times and the book of Romans so much more.

    Romans 2:7-8 "eternal life"=entering God's Kingdom. "Indignation and wrath"=eternal damnation=burning in hell.
    Proverbs 9:18"But he knows not that the dead are there and that her guests are in the depths of hell:" Proverbs 15:11, 15:24, 27:20, Psalms 55:15, Matthew 23:33, Luke 10:15, Revelations 1:18, etc, etc. Looks like Gods' theology !!!! Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Amen

    James 1:22 "But be doers of the word, not hearers only, lest you deceive yourselves."
