1 Paul a seruant of Iesus Christ, called to bee an Apostle, separated vnto the Gospel of God,

2 (Which he had promised afore by his Prophets in the holy Scriptures,)

3 Concerning his Sonne Iesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of Dauid according to the flesh,

4 And declared to be the Sonne of God, with power, according to the Spirit of holinesse, by the resurrection from the dead.

5 By whom we haue receiued grace and Apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for his Name,

6 Among whom are ye also the called of Iesus Christ.

7 To all that be in Rome, beloued of God, called to be Saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Iesus Christ.

8 First I thanke my God through Iesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

9 For God is my witnesse, whom I serue with my spirit in the Gospel of his Sonne, that without ceasing I make mention of you, alwayes in my prayers,

10 Making request, (if by any meanes now at length I might haue a prosperous iourney by the will of God) to come vnto you.

11 For I long to see you, that I may impart vnto you some spirituall gift, to the end you may be established,

12 That is, that I may be comforted together with you, by the mutual faith both of you and me.

13 Now I would not haue you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come vnto you, (but was let hitherto) that I might haue some fruit among you also, euen as among other Gentiles.

14 I am debter both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians, both to the wise, and to the vnwise.

15 So, as much as in mee is, I am ready to preach the Gospel to you that are at Rome also.

16 For I am not ashamed of the Gopel of Christ: for it is the power of God vnto saluation, to euery one that beleeueth, to the Iew first, and also to the Greeke.

17 For therein is the righteousnesse of God reueiled from faith to faith: as it is written, The iust shall liue by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is reueiled from heauen against all vngodlinesse, and vnrighteousnesse of men, who hold the trueth in vnrighteousnesse.

19 Because that which may bee knowen of God, is manifest in them, for God hath shewed it vnto them.

20 For the inuisible things of him from the Creation of the world, are clearely seene, being vnderstood by the things that are made, euen his eternall Power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankefull, but became vaine in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened:

22 Professing themselues to be wise, they became fooles:

23 And changed the glory of the vncorruptible God, into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birdes, and foure footed beasts, and creeping things:

24 Wherefore God also gaue them vp to vncleannesse, through the lusts of their owne hearts, to dishonour their owne bodies betweene themselues:

25 Who changed the trueth of God into a lye, and worshipped and serued the creature more then the Creatour, who is blessed for euer. Amen.

26 For this cause God gaue them vp vnto vile affections: for euen their women did change the naturall vse into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leauing the naturall vse of the woman, burned in their lust one towards another, men with men working that which is vnseemely, and receiuing in themselues that recompense of their errour which was meet.

28 And euen as they did not like to retaine God in their knowledge, God gaue them ouer to a reprobate minde, to doe those things which are not conuenient:

29 Being filled with all vnrighteousnes, fornication, wickednesse, couetousnes, maliciousnes, full of enuie, murther, debate, deceit, malignitie, whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despitefull, proude, boasters, inuenters of euill things, disobedient to parents;

31 Without vnderstanding, couenant breakers, without naturall affection, implacable, vnmercifull;

32 Who knowing the iudgement of God, (that they which commit such things, are worthy of death) not onely do the same, but haue pleasure in them that doe them.

Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 11/24/2014, 7:43pm...

Hello Rebecca Lynne I would like to add to my comment that I posted. The act of homosexuality is not the only sin that we should not uphold. The reason why people focus on this one is because of the strangeness of it. It goes against the natural affections of a person. However, there is lying, fornication, adultery. There is a whole list of sin that God does not like. The Bible states that all liars will have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone This is the second death, Revelation 21 8. People lie to their children, thereby enforcing that it is alright to tell little white lies. For example, people teach their children every year there is a Santa Claus. They lie about the tooth fairy. They lie about the Easter bunny. Even though people call them little white lies the Bible states all liars will go into the lake of fire. It does not distinguish between a little white lie and a big lie, it is still a lie.

Hello Rebecca Lynne I thank God for his Word and thank you for those kind words. You are absolutely correct. We are not to support them in their sin. Does this mean that we treat them badly? The answer is no. We still have to follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. They are still human and as long as there is breath in the body they have a chance to change. However, we do have to separate church and state when it comes to upholding our beliefs. If I were asked to marry a gay couple,I would not marry them, because it is against my belief. However, if they are in position of authority would I respect them? Yes, because they are in position of authority. In regard to Romans 1 32, If I can say it like this, how can you teach, preach, or lead if you are committing sin yourself? How can you tell someone that the act of homosexuality is against God and you are doing it yourself? This is considered as a hypocrite. You should not find pleasure in them or anyone committing sin.

Hello RNM Yes, the true Christian has noticed the rise of Homosexuality coming out. We are truly living in the last days. When Jesus Christ returns and calls his saints home then woe unto those that are left here to go through the tribulation period. This is why it is important that if you are not saved, get saved. If you are saved stay saved. Matthew 24 36 "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only ". No one knows exactly when he is coming back, but it is close. They will be drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, like in the days of Noe, Matthew 24 35 thru 39. Just like God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire he rained down, he will destroy this entire Earth and Heaven like that with fire. Jude 1 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

In one of the references to the end of time, the Messiah said It would be as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, has any body noticed the sodomite movement going on in the U.S. and around the world I 'm sure not everyone in Sodom were sodomites, but the rest were probably caught up in some form of evil and condoned the sodomites. Just like it is here in the USA today. All I know, we are getting closer, THANK GOD.

Evangelist Chatauna. I have enjoyed reading your comments. I would like to ask your opinion on the very last verse of Romans chapter 1, I have always believed that even if you were not a homosexual, if you approved of it, you were just as guilty. Some other versions of the Bible seem to imply this. I don 't know if you read any other translation but KJV. Thank you.

Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 10/27/2014, 10:53am...

I would like to add one more comment to my 2 part response. Deuteronomy 25 16 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the LORD thy God. In the scriptures you will further find more things that God hat. 1 Corinthians 6 9 10 Know ye not that unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 10/27/2014, 10:46am...

Part 2 of 2 Let us first look at what does abomination mean, an abominating great hatred and disgust loathing, anything hateful and disgusting. The adjective of abomination is abominable which mean nasty and disgusting vile loathsome highly unpleasant disagreeable very bad. The word adjective carries the definition of quantity according to Webster Dictionary therefore, meaning any indeterminate bulk a lot . According to the scripture the word abominable are the things many, in bulk that are hateful to God. God hates sin. Even though people want to argue that homosexuality is not listed in Revelation, this still does not negate the fact that homosexuality is listed in bulk with other sins under the word abominable.
