徒 Acts 13:44-46
44 下一个安息日，几乎全城的人都聚了来，要听主的道。 45 犹太人看见这么多人，就满心嫉妒，反驳保罗所讲的，并且毁谤他们。 46 保罗和巴拿巴却放胆说：“上帝的道，先讲给你们听，是应该的。但因为你们弃绝这道，断定自己不配得永生，所以我们现在就转向外族人去了。
44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord. 45 When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy. They began to contradict what Paul was saying and heaped abuse on him. 46 Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: “We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles.
This teaches us to use extreme severity only against those who are beyond hope. The more boldly reprobate people oppress the truth, the more we should take courage. We must never give way to the devil or his ministers.
Since rejecting the Gospel is denying the righteousness of God, we need no other judge to condemn unbelievers.
