God’s Righteous Judgment 2 1Therefore, any one of you[W] who judges is without excuse. For when you judge another, you condemn yourself, since you, the judge, do the same things. 2We know that God’s judgment on those who do such things is based on the truth. 3Do you really think—anyone of you who judges those who do such things yet do the same—that you will escape God’s judgment? 4Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, restraint, and patience, not recognizing[X] that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance? 5But because of your hardness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment is revealed. 6He will repay each one according to his works:[Y] 7eternal life to those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality; 8but wrath and indignation to those who are self-seeking and disobey the truth but are obeying unrighteousness; 9affliction and distress for every human being who does evil, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek; 10but glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does what is good, first to the Jew, and also to the Greek. 11There is no favoritism with God. 12All those who sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all those who sinned under the law will be judged by the law. 13For the hearers of the law are not righteous before God, but the doers of the law will be declared righteous.[Z] 14So, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, instinctively do what the law demands, they are a law to themselves even though they do not have the law. 15They show that the work of the law[A] is written on their hearts. Their consciences confirm this. Their competing thoughts will either accuse or excuse them[B] 16on the day when God judges what people have kept secret, according to my gospel through Christ Jesus.   Jewish Violation of the Law   17Now if[C] you call yourself a Jew, and rest in the law, boast in God, 18know His will, and approve the things that are superior, being instructed from the law, 19and if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light to those in darkness, 20an instructor of the ignorant, a teacher of the immature, having the full expression[D] of knowledge and truth in the law— 21you then, who teach another, don’t you teach yourself? You who preach, “You must not steal”—do you steal? 22You who say, “You must not commit adultery”—do you commit adultery? You who detest idols, do you rob their temples? 23You who boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? 24For, as it is written: The name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.[E]   Circumcision of the Heart   25For circumcision benefits you if you observe the law, but if you are a lawbreaker, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. 26Therefore if an uncircumcised man keeps the law’s requirements, will his uncircumcision not be counted as circumcision? 27A man who is physically uncircumcised, but who fulfills the law, will judge you who are a lawbreaker in spite of having the letter of the law and circumcision. 28For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, and true circumcision is not something visible in the flesh. 29On the contrary, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart—by the Spirit, not the letter.[F] That man’s praise[G] is not from men but from God.

Therefore you are without excuse, every man of you who passes judgement, for in that you judge another, you condemn yourself;  for you who judge practice the same things.

Against the grain This is the most important aspect Gods pattern for life leads to a blessed life - not rule following That's why some non Christians seem blessed? See14 & 15 below No matter -for me it's why I need to choose to follow the pattern, seek/learn it first If you go against the grain, you get splinters, regardless of which neighborhood you’re from, what your parents taught you, what schools you attended.  But if you embrace the way God does things, there are wonderful payoffs, again without regard to where you are from or how you were brought up.  -Romans 2:9-10 (MSG) When outsiders who have never heard of God’s law follow it more or less by instinct, they confirm its truth by their obedience.  They show that God’s law is not something alien, imposed on us from without, but woven into the very fabric of our creation. There is something deep within them that echoes God’s yes and no, right and wrong.  -Romans 2:14-15 (MSG)

Choosing to know better and teach the Gospel but doing the very things that you have taught not to do is blasphemy in Gods sight. When you know better you are required to do better.
