God chose Israel so they could be a light to the world, but they broke his law, pursuing idols and making a fake display of piety. Others see this sort of hypocrisy and use it as a reason to blaspheme God.
What we do in our personal lives matter; it is ultimately reflected in our public lives. We cannot suppress it. People see through the masks we wear. Religion and self-effort will only lead to empty faith. Our world needs authenticity.
God has a solution to all this! The Holy Spirit can change our hearts, transforming us on the inside to conform ever more closely to his will for us.
To find out more, listen as Keith preaches on Romans 2:17-29.

“The safest road to hell is the gradual one.”
– C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters.
We only truly understand God’s righteousness when we understand how unrighteous we are. In Romans 1:18-2:16 we see the case against humankind.
- We suppress the truth.
- We do not honour God.
- We worship things other than God.
- We approve of sinful practices.

We’re sitting as jury and as the accused when we approach Romans. We are guilty, as rebellious humans. Here is the only solution to our rebellion, our only defence. This is the gospel of God.
This book is essential for understanding sanctification, justification, the deity of Christ and the righteousness of God. This is the gospel that transforms lives. This gospel does the one thing no other power can do: it saves you.
Keith preaches from Romans 1:1-17
