“Stop majoring on the minors.”
AJ Hart
Famous Commentator on the Book of Romans
What’s the big deal?
The key word in verse
four is “devoted”.
Idolatry is giving a
good thing more weight
than it should have.
This is true of
doctrines as well.
Problems arise when openhanded issues are elevated to
closed-handed issues.
Instead of focusing on the
certainties we have by faith
and for hope, we focus on the
things that we are unsure of.
By wanting to know the
unknowable, we are in
essence claiming to be God.
This has been the problem
since the Garden of Eden.
The purpose of Biblical
ministry is love, via
a pure heart, clarity of
conscience and true faith.
As Christians, we are
not called to be
right, but righteous.
My fear is that
verses 6 & 7 are prevalent
in the Church today.
So many people want
to teach the Scriptures
without having a clue what
they are talking about.
It is possible to read, teach,
or write about the Scriptures
and not have a clue
what they are really saying.
This is true regardless if
you have a M.Div or other
seminary degree or not.
JOHN 5:30-40
The Bible is for us,
but it is not about us.
The Scriptures are
all about Jesus.
And beginning with Moses and
all the Prophets, He interpreted
to them in all the Scriptures
the things concerning Himself....

EVIL-MERODACH
(2 Kings 25)
If you read the Bible
and you don’t see
Jesus, read it again.
Two principles for
reading the Bible.
It’s about Jesus.
It interprets itself.
What do you confidently,
but falsely, assume
about the Scriptures?
Paul continues, addressing
the purpose of the Law.
The Law is comprised of three
parts, interwoven together.
Ceremonial Law
Fulfilled in Christ
Judicial Law
Unnecessary With Christ
Moral Law
Magnified By Christ
Paul is referring to
the Moral Law here.
The Law is good.
Because we aren’t.
The Law proves to us that
we do not measure up.
The Law is only
written for the sinner.
The Law was written for you.
The Law leads us
to the Gospel.
The Law proves that
we need Jesus.
For God has done
what the Law, weakened
by the flesh could not do.
!

ROMANS 8:3
Jesus came to do
what the Law could not:
exterminate sin.
Jesus came to do
what the Law could not:
resurrect the dead.
Godly men see Jesus in
the Scriptures and love the
Jesus of the Scriptures.
Godly men fight false doctrine
by cherishing sound doctrine,
namely the Gospel of Christ.
Jesus is the Good News.
