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 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.


Solomon N.'s Romans Chapter 1 comment about verse 27 on 9/13/2014, 4:48pm...

It is abnormal when a man is seeking sexual interest from fellow man . But remember those those who think they can correct God now will be sorry when they will stand before the judgement seat.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 9/11/2014, 2:34pm...

An important point that this writer brings out here is that God punished them by given them over to a reprobated mind to commit sexual acts that God hates. This was their punishment. Read verse 22 32. So then you have to ask yourselves if God made this into a punishment for those who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the creator then why would he accept HOMOSEXUALITY? God does not accept the sexual act of homosexuality, because if he did he would not have used it for a punishment. Men were never meant to have sex with another man. Women were never meant to have sex with another women. This is not the only wrongful copulation that God hates. He does not like adultery or whoremonger. Over in the scriptures about Sodom and Gomorrah, God did destroy that city for the sin that was there. If God truly accepted men with men and women with women sexually then why did he not let it be written that a man can marry a man or a woman can marry a woman. In I Corinthians 7 this talks about marriage. It does not mention men with men or women with women.


MockingBird's Romans Chapter 1 comment about verse 16 on 9/03/2014, 9:25am...

If I am ashamed of the Gospel of Christ then I have not the power of God. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ I will proclaim it Therefore the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation to me that believes. Praise God !!!


Blessed's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 9/03/2014, 6:23am...

People have cornered that art of making excuses form their sins. Haters of GOD care in churches. They sin and influence others to sin. Then the congregation becomes full of sinners instead of saints. A little leaven leaven the whole lump. Be ye holy for I am holy.


Dorotea pedroza's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 8/03/2014, 9:50am...

My opinion is that was a very unique brother, praying for everyone, Like our Lord Jesus Christ left the model... And in other areas we have to continue to be in obedience to God 's Law 's. In Everything!
