The Righteous And Impartial Judgment Of God

3 So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on those who practice these things and then do them yourself, do you think you will escape God's judgment? 4 Or are you unaware of his rich kindness, forbearance, and patience, that it is God's kindness that is leading you to repent? 5 But because of your stubborn and unrepentant heart you are reserving wrath for yourself on the day of wrath, when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.
