The third possible objection that could be raised by the Jews to what Paul said in chapter 2 is that perhaps God is unjust in punishing the Jews if indeed their sin has brought out His glory and demonstrated His righteousness.

We see instead that God is Righteousness and Justice itself and that He can by no means acquit the guilty. His justice must be satisfied. In answer to those who say God is too loving to send people to Hell, we point to the cross and say that if God could turn a blind eye and forgive sinners out of ‘love’, then Christ’s death on the cross was unnecessary, so why would God send Him to such a death?

Unbelievers are warned that they must come to Christ and be clothed in His righteousness or they will surely receive the justice of God for their sins.
