People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:28


Ro 1:28 God gave them over to a reprobate mind. A thought is repeated here that has already been hinted, and is often taught in the Scriptures. The man who turns from the truth will be allowed to have his way, will fall deeper and deeper into error, and will reap all the evil consequences of loving darkness rather than light. Those who hate the truth are "given over to a reprobate mind". A reprobate mind is one rejected of God. Which are not convenient. Not decent, or honorable.

    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.
  • Nadine Stripling Smith
    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
