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's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 3/16/2015, 10:51pm...

First, its interesting that thus is the first mention of men with men and woman with woman. Its very clear that God intended us to understand that these people who refuse to retain God in their knowledge are given over to a reprobate mind. And that only the Holy Spirit can change anyone in that state. That said we as believers have to understand that God gave them over, And only God can Change them.

RNM 1-11 ROM's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 3/11/2015, 8:45pm...

ROM 1-11... Genesis 2:3 this is the first sign of a day of rest, their were no Jews around only Adam I 'll bet he observed the seventh day, what do you think, It was common knowledge with all mankind to rest on the 7th day God made that perfectly clear, it was man 's refusal to obey God that brought about the problems for man, it is the least we could do was obey the God that created us, the Sabbath has been around since the 7th day, all of mankind at some point has been made aware of the 7th day, where do you think the gentiles came from? Abraham, his handmaid Hagar gave birth to Ishmael which became the father of the gentile nations, but still knew of the 7th day Sabbath from his father Abraham, the God of Heaven is fair and just, in every way. all of the human race at some point in time was aware of the true 7th day Sabbath but them ,like you has rejected it because of unbelief, it is deception on a world scale, like Eve in the garden being cunningly deceived into breaking God 's law, like you and the rest of mankind being cunningly deceived into breaking God 's Sabbath law, how slick is that, with Eve, physical death befell man with mankind, spiritual death in the lake of fire. MATT 7:21... Not everyone that saith unto me Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven but he that doeth the will of my father which is in Heaven. The will of God is to be obedient to his law. It 's really that simple. AMEN!!


Catherine varnadoe's Romans Chapter 1 comment about verse 18 on 2/15/2015, 4:17am...

All ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold back the truth in unrighteousness, the wrath of God will be revealed from heaven.


Nene's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 2/13/2015, 8:50pm...

Hi John it 's always a pleasure to know that there are some of us do hunger for righteousness it 's good to ask questions too. The evangelist Robinson is correct, just follow the word of God. A wonderful place to start is Matt 16:18-19 is where Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven and as you follow the scriptures you will find Peter obeying the command that he was given from Jesus. Read Acts chapter 2, 4, 10 and 19. In chapter 2 is where the first time the question was ever asked as in relation of how or what must we do to be saved, pray and spend time asking God to reveal himself to you and he will, when you start to feel his presence just repent for any knowing sins and when you have asked for forgiveness then ask for the Holy Ghost and he will give it to you and I promise you will be different from that very moment. God Bless!!


Antoinette B. Shirley's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 2/08/2015, 3:31pm...

Romans Chapter 1 is AWESOME!! It clearly defines and depicts the wrong and blasphemous behavior and actions of men and women being gay. It informs and warns people of the serious consequences and punishment for engaging in such inappropriate and condemnable acts. It is so powerful and right to the point. God 's feelings toward those who go against God 's will is unmistakably clear and decise. I love it!!


RNM ROM 1-29's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 1/29/2015, 10:31pm...

ROM 1-29...Have you heard the old saying "You can lead a horse to water but you can 't make him drink ", all I am trying to do, is jar you out of your slumber, you are blinded by your own egotism you will go to your death before you accept the truth, that you have been deceived, all that I am trying to do is help, if you truly Love the LORD then at least check into it. Have you ever read Isaiah 66: 22-23- It 's talking about the New Heaven and Earth, in Verse 23, And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. This is how serious and important the 4th commandment is to GOD, it will continue on into the next life. You, the catholic church or anyone else, cannot usurp authority over GOD, Every thing you say is based on your following after the commandments of man, what I have shown you is straight from of the word of GOD, the choice is yours Eve either God 's law or Satan 's lie. AMEN!!


Bruce edward massie's Romans Chapter 1 comment on 1/29/2015, 4:48am...

I love the Roman 's road map for man kind. and I see a comment up there that you must be water baptized with water in Mark chap 1:8 that Jesus baptizes with the Holy Spirit I believe water baptism is a outward showing of a inward faith.The thief on the Cross never came down and got baptized.
