Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:31


1:31 Covenant - breakers - It is well known, the Romans, as a nation, from the very beginning of their commonwealth, never made any scruple of vacating altogether the most solemn engagement, if they did not like it, though made by their supreme magistrate, in the name of the whole people. They only gave up the general who had made it, and then supposed themselves to be at full liberty. Without natural affection - The custom of exposing their own new - born children to perish by cold, hunger, or wild beasts, which so generally prevailed in the heathen world, particularly among the Greeks and Romans, was an amazing instance of this; as is also that of killing their aged and helpless parents, now common among the American heathens.

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.

    Romans 1:1-2 references the scripture wherein GOD said, I will send you pastors and teachers after mine own heart. Paul's calling was a call of election by the WILL

    I think Romans 1:20 is a lovely verse: It assures me that God, our father of heavens, is taking care of us.
