Dr. Lloyd-Jones follows Paul's massive indictment against sin; yet he never loses sight of the function that chapter 2 is meant to serve in the context of the whole letter. Here he unfolds Paul's analysis of the spiritual sickness of the human heart, its deceitfulness and rebellion against God, and its sinister use of religion as a defense mechanism against true conviction of sin. Like Martin Luther, he recognizes that the apostle's plucking up, pulling down and destroying of self-righteousness is intended to clear the way for planting Christ and salvation in our hearts.
