Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:12


1:12 That is, I long to be comforted by the mutual faith both of you and me - He not only associates the Romans with, but even prefers them before, himself. How different is this style of the apostle from that of the modern court of Rome!


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:12


Ro 1:12 That is. Such a result would minister to the mutual comfort of Paul and the church. If they are "established", he will be comforted in them. The idea is that his faith will be a comfort and strength to them, and he will be encouraged and strengthened by their faith. Thus they will be mutual helpers. How different the humble apostolic style of address from that of a Roman bishop!

    I would like to say to the young person that said we are all afraid to tell the truth about homosexuality, for fear of being called a hater. That's not true, we all aren't afraid, because before I read that comment. God hasn't given us a spirit of fear but of POWER and a SOUND MIND. Fear has torment. What is it about man that we should fear him, anyway.

    The words of God are plainly written. In Romans chapter 1:27 tells us plainly about homosexuality. If MEN are leaving NATURAL AFFECTION for women,

    RE : robert L >> About "Christian" word. In the book of Act 26:28 is words from St. Paul, and 1 Peter 4:16 is words from St. Peter. NOT originally from Jesus. By the way, "Christ" original meaning from Greek scripture stands for "Messiah". What from the questioner want is, the word "Christian" from what Jesus said. Not from ST. PETER or ST. PAUL. Tq
