Discussion for Romans 1

    Romans 1;18 stood out in this chapter for me, and is the root of separation between God and man. Those that hold the truth in unrighteous, is unforgiving, and insisting that the truth that they know, is above a loving and forgiving God. For Brothers and Sisters the act of unforgiving is moving away from Grace, and toward Judgment. Grace is for the living, and doing good judgment is graceful 4you!

    Saint we are call by God! let us all turn away, from being part of this world. We are God people, we need to be example for those who are loses an are looking to be save. If we walk in according to this world, how are we going to show an be able to talk about the good word of God. God words is PURE AND GIVE LIFE. let us repent to God in Jesus Name, and put away from the darkness. AMEN

    Ma'am, If a man is truly born again, he is fully qualified because he is endowed with the Holy Spirit which enables him. Just like the Lord Jesus Christ, He was submissive to the will of the Father. Now, God has put a divine order: "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God." 1 Corinthian 11:3.
  • Joyce Kasey
    Please send me all scriptures which justify that a woman who is filled with the holy spirit can preach in church if no man is qualified.

    What was , now is ; who is it that sells the word of God? That makes a business out of souls? Who has not read the words from the mouth of Jesus; my fathers house is a house of prayer; But you have turned it into a den of thieves? The word of God is given to this generation. "As for tomorrow, the evil there of is sufficient unto that day."Salvation is for the world. Love is God.
  • Wayne
    We sit at the table and feast while the hungry beg in the streets ,even up to the door. Love without action has no value. Now then having said that ,understand this ;for it written man cannot live by bread alone .But by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. The way of God is not the way of man.
