Discussion for Romans 5

  • Justin
    : I make righteous, defend the cause of, plead for the righteousness (innocence) of, acquit, justify; hence: I regard as righteous. Definition of being Justified. To really grasp an understanding on how we are declared legally innocent in the eyes of God we need to study how Abraham was justified. Go back to Romans 4. The best way to read the Bible is to put everything together in context.

    To Sylvia - I'm not going to be your 'teacher'; here's a scripture to get you started (if you are serious, you need to pray for His understanding) - Hosea 4:6; Rom. 14-15; Heb. 10:25. You need to read Hosea 4:1-9, very carefully, to catch what is there. It applies very much to this day. Also, ask the Lord, in Jesus name, to lead you to a church that preaches HIS WHOLE truth f the Bible.
  • Sylvia
    I love to read the bible but sometimes its so hard to understand what they're talking about. I need someone to help me with the bible to really understand
  • Lilian
    Thanks to the blood ofJesus by his blood we are sanctified., we are saved by his grace. Jesus made everything new he paid the price on the cross our job now is to accept and believe Jesus that he is a son of a living God. Only thru him and by his blood only we have life in abundance. Lets praise him only for he is worthy. Our tribulations in life could come but only praising Jesus we have peace
