A simple summary of the first three chapters of Romans could go like this:
Chapter One - lost, sinful pagans are deserving of God's wrath.
Chapter Two - Lost, moral people are deserving of God's judgment.
Chapter Three: Lost, religious people are also deserving of God's judgment.
So where does that leave us?
And if you preach a message assaulting the perceived goodness in lost, moral people... won't you be accused of being judgmental? Yes. But to quote Paul Washer, "People tell me judge not lest ye be judged. I always tell them, twist not scripture lest ye be like Satan."
The following is a study on Romans 2:1-16.
