4. Does God take sides?
Romans 2:28–29 (NIV)
A person is not a Jew who is one only outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a person’s praise is not from other people, but from God.
- God’s people are people of faith – that’s the way it has always been.
- God is on the side of righteousness and justice.
