Many people put their faith and security in things that are... well, insecure at best. The stock market, big government, political parties, their job, AIG or Bernie Madoff.
And, in the world of investments, false security could be costly. But in the real world, false security can totally destroy you. Eternally.
This is what Paul confronts the church in Rome about concerning the Jews but the lesson is also for us today. Do we place our eternal security in (1) our knowledge of the Bible, (2) our Christian heritage, or (3) our religious ceremonies and practices?
Woe to us if we do!
The following is a study on Romans 2:17-29.
