The Abuser Really has no Fear of God

Therefore you have no excuse, everyone of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who practice such things. But do you suppose this, O man, when you pass judgment on those who practice such things and do the same yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God? (Rom 2:1-3)

Like the Pharisees of Jesus’ day, RASNs (revilers, abusers, sociopaths, narcissists) really think that they are completely justified in the things they do. Now, via this thing called projection, they cast condemnation upon others when they see them doing the same things they (the abuser) does, OR the cast guilt and condemnation on others when the abuser in fact is the one who is guilty. Whatever the scenario, it always leaves the abuser (the really guilty one) unsoiled by any blame. RASNs are never wrong, you know. Their diabolical double standard acquits them every time and condemns others.

The Lord sees it all and the Apostle Paul here points out the irony of it. These self-righteous ones, every time they condemn someone else, every time they project their own sin to others, they are pronouncing condemnation upon themselves. “You say that is sin, Mr. RASN? Agreed. And that is the very same thing that YOU do. You condemn yourself.”  In God’s perfect courtroom, The RASN’s own words condemn him.

In this world, RASNs often escape judgment and punishment. But they are storing up wrath for themselves on the day when God, through Christ, will judge the world in perfect justice. The RASN so often gets away with it here in this life, but the great Supreme Court of the universe is going to convene one Day, and there will be no escape from the perfect justice of God.
