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.

    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.
  • Charity Baker
    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
