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.

James Linn's Romans Chapter 1 comment about verse 31 on 10/24/2014, 10:29am...

Covenent breakers of today those who divorce their husband or wife outside the boundaries Jesus gave.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 10/08/2014, 1:29pm...

Hello John, In addition to the comments that I have made which I hope gets printed here is one more. In verse number 20 when God said, And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous If I can say it like this notice the word sin there is no s on it to indicate plural or many sins. The focused seemed to have been on the one particular sin. That was the desire of men with men. Homosexuality. When the LORD said in verse 21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me and if not, I will know . The scripture stated it , referring back to sin being singular. The only thing sin or it focused on that night was those men asking and wanting to have the angels of God which were men. They did not want the women that Lot offered them. They wanted the men. Think about this, if their intentions were honorable why did Lot offer his virgin daughters? This is continue with the next Genesis 19.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 10/08/2014, 1:18pm...

In addition to my other comment, in Romans Chapter 1 it states Verse 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves Verse 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature. Verse 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that reompence of their error which was meet. I ask again what is Homosexuality? Homosexuality is men having sex with men, women having sex with women. This is what these scriptures are talking about. For this God turned them over to a reprobated mind.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 10/08/2014, 1:12pm...

Hello John, What is Homosexuality? It is a man having sex with a man. It is a woman having sex with a woman. Homosexuality was used as a punishment for those who corrupted God 's Word and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God. God turned them over to a reprobated mind. A mind that is condemned or a totally lost soul. Romans Chapter 1. So why would God use Homosexuality as a punishment and then turn around and okay it for humans to do? God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this sin. The men of those cities did not want the daughters of Lot, even after Lot offered the daughters to them. They wanted the angles, the men of God. I do not think they wanted to have a conversation with them, because if they did then I sure that the angels would not have blinded them. Read my answer under Genesis Chapter 9.


John Hayworth's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 10/07/2014, 4:13pm...

The Bible does not speak of homosexuality, it speaks of perverse thoughts and perverse deeds. Someone relatively recently decided to call it Homosexuality.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 9/16/2014, 8:50am...

Correction I made a typo It should be "Now if you are implying that the LGBT community trying to say that God made a mistake when HE made them and that they should be the opposite in which they were born, then you are correct ". Once again God has never nor will he ever except a sexual union between men with men, women with women. You are correct Babesgomer 's, once you have been truly saved, you are to never walk those paths again. If you truly want to be free of Homosexuality then God will truly step in and help you. Keep also in mind that God also does not like adultery, whoremonger, or fornication.


Babesgomer's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 9/15/2014, 11:48am...

people would say its ok to be homosexual, if you are born again for your sins are forgiven, but I disagree. for to be born again we believe Jesus died for our sins an we and he knows if we truly believe, an he puts his spirit in us, but to those that are willing to accept all that goes with it. it is a dailey renewal of our mind an heart thru Jesus spirit, an live a life as he did, an all the works we do in his name thru his spirit, with knowing all the glory is his. if you believe a sin is ok to do, then you have not his spirit in you.the lord knows if you are sincere, so that is where fear in god should be, for we know, that hell can be an ending point if we do not let him truly in.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 9/14/2014, 3:07pm...

Hello Solomon N. I do not understand your comment about "correcting God ". You and I both agree with the word of God. God has never, even from the beginning, accepted men laying with men and women laying with women. When he made the first human couple he made a man and a woman female . Now if you are implying that the LGBT community trying to say that God made a mistake when they made them and that they should be the opposite in which they were born, then you are correct. If they do not repent and follow ACTS 2 38 and truly stay saved, they will find themselves lost forever. Now like I stated this is not the only sexual act in which God does not like, but everybody tends to stress this because it goes against the very nature of man. But the other wrongful copulation or sexual act is just as wrong, such as adultery and whoremonger, and fornication.
