Discussion for Romans 1

  • Brianna
    Vs. 20

    Very simple and makes sense. How can anyone look at the creation of the world and rule out that someone created it? Creation itself should tell you there is an intelligent designer. However, we can not rely on creation to tell us everything about Jehovah God. We must also read his word the Bible as it reveals the character of the Creator.
