Romans 3:1-8, “Paul argues against a false assurance of salvation.”

In this complex passage, Paul is debating with some first century Jewish people who are arguing that on the basis of the ritual of circumcision that they have their eternal security. Paul would seek to demolish this argument and urges everyone to put their hope and trust in the work of Jesus Christ our Lord. In this passage Paul deals with some of the crazy ways people would argue to avoid repentance. It has a strong message to say to us also because too many people in our own day have this false assurance of salvation.
