Discussion for Romans 2:11

  • Lorna on Romans 2:11
    He (our creator), is no respect of persons, we read from the bible.

    so why did he choose to be born a jew?

    then later become a christian?

    this seems a controversial issue!

    for the bible also says...

    i change not!

    can one begin to trust anyone who calls himself

    god, who changes not,

    then,do a complete flip? to keep what has always

    been his!

    and after what he so firmly says! i change not!

    even satan would have something to say about this!

    and as we also know, he is immortal

    he is perfect,

    so there is

    no change from perfection to being a mortal creator

    which would, put him in the same bracket as satan, who is

    a created being, thus here he lowers himself

    (when there is no need to), in not only satan's eyes,

    but all mankind, being born again to prove

    his ownership! he turns human like us!


    he is the owner to all his creation!

    never has he lost anything to a created being - satan!

    who can never stand up to his maker, owing every

    minute to him for his own life, and would surely be

    consumed by the creator's presence!

    for the wages of sin is death,

    satan is living only

    through his makers gratis, or he should have long

    been dead by now!

    i believe my creator is perfect in everyway.

    never has he lost anything he is owner of,

    not incompetent, untruthful to his word,

    lacking a sure foundation, and the ability

    to hold on to what is rightfully his!

    unaware of the helplessness of man's

    suffering, that he took so long to come to

    his aid!

    had to leave a place called heaven to show

    who he rightfully is!

    then to prove to man he had to lower his

    status in order to win back the ownership

    of this sad world! and his people!

    and then be told by satan...

    to bow down to him, and he (our creator)

    would be given this whole!

    i also believe my creator knew what he did

    back then, even before he created anything

    for surely he is an immortal being, knows his

    own, and how to manage it all, even satan.

    he need never to prove to anyone or answer.
  • Jackie on Romans 2:11
    This scripture to me, means, it doesn't matter who you are, whether you be rich or poor, President or farmer, doesn't matter to him. We are all equal to him as people. We will all answer for how we lived our lives. One person is same as next, I believe he only sees our souls. I dont think he looks on our outside, I believe all he sees is our souls, and our souls are obedient or unobedience. That's just what I believe.
  • SisterLinda on Romans 2:11
    I believe God, who was, is, and is to come, who was dead, but yet alive, our almighty God our right now God, who lives, breathes, moves, inside all nations of people, no matter what condition their mind is in He, God has no respector persons. He love,an has mercy on the just, and the unjust amen. I believe in our living God,Jesus Christ our Saviour, amen!
  • Rhonda Walton on Romans 2:11

  • Debbie on Romans 2:11
    God loves me for me and you for you no matter what or who you are
  • Inus Pretorius on Romans 2:11
    God treats everyone equally. Peter, John, Ananias, Paul,Dom, Ayodele, Ogechukwu, brother Jun and Inus. The same promise of power that were available to Peter, Paul,etc is available today to those that diligently seeks Him.Acts 33+38+39
  • Dom Agomuo on Romans 2:11
    God offered equal opportunity to all mankind through Christ. What each of us does with it is what endears us the more to Him or enstranges us from Him
  • Ayodele oluwaseun lateef on Romans 2:11
    My LORD is awesome.halelujah
  • Ogechukwu on Romans 2:11
    This shows the Righteousness of God: that everyone on earth is judged or justified by his/her good works and also by accepting Lord Jesus as his/her personal Savior, thereby living a godly and obedient lifestyle.
