People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:2


Ro 1:2 Which he had promised before, etc. This gospel was no innovation, but a fulfillment of God's long-cherished plans, and had been promised through the prophets of the Old Testament. Indeed the Old Testament is a system of types, shadows and promises pointing forward to the coming of Christ. "Of him have all the prophets borne witness" (Ac 10:43).

Discussion for Romans 1

    I like the book of Romans, we had this chapter in Sunday School the other Sunday ago, I notice the writer left out the 26 -29 verses. Its talking about how man has left his natural affection for a woman and has turn to man, men with men and women with women. the bible is right I don't care how many laws man make up and changed. We as Christian need to stand up for whats right.

    Roman l speaks of God's revelation of " The Just shall live by faith." 17 He is speaking against all ungodliness and unrighteousness. 18 Man depravity to serve the creature and not the Creator, becoming darken or without understanding.21 Their hearts turned against God to dishonor their own bodies.24 They did not want to retain God in their knowledge and were turned over to a reprobate mind.28

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    Some may not like my view, but I definitely believe the message in vs 24 thru 32 is very clear - being gay or lesbian goes against God's word. Sincere repentence and being born again is the answer.
