God’s Faithfulness

Romans 3:1-8

What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision?  Much in every way!  First of all, the Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God.

What if some were unfaithful?  Will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness?  Not at all!  Let God be true, and every human being a liar.   As it is written:

“So that you may be proved right when you speak
and prevail when you judge.”

But if our unrighteousness brings out God’s righteousness more clearly, what shall we say?   That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us?   (I am using a human argument.)   Certainly not!   If that were so, how could God judge the world?

Someone might argue, “If my falsehood enhances God’s truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?”   Why not say—as some slanderously claim that we say—“Let us do evil that good may result”?   Their condemnation is just!
