Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:24


1:24 Wherefore - One punishment of sin is from the very nature of it, as #Rom 1:27|; another, as here, is from vindictive justice. Uncleanness - Ungodliness and uncleanness are frequently joined, #1Thes 4:5 as are the knowledge of God and purity|. God gave them up - By withdrawing his restraining grace.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:24


Ro 1:24 Wherefore. Having chosen folly, God gave them up to the consequences of their folly, and there followed an awful moral degradation which is now described. Their false religion was no check upon their lusts. They engaged in the lowest and most disgusting lusts. Language cannot describe the pollution of the Gentile world, when Paul wrote, as revealed by the pagan writers of that period.

    Romans 1:28-32 (Even these people will some day do the following) Isaiah 45:23,Romans 14:11,Philipians 2:10, V.11 says"And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Whether they will be doing it in heaven or hell; God will judge.
  • A disciple
    A right understanding of the truth of God in Christ, will answer every miscalculation of men's thinking. The fact is, that God is absolutely going to "force" the world to submit under His Son Jesus Christ; and our assurance of this, is that He has raised Jesus from the dead and given Him ALL AUTHORITY in heaven and on earth, and the Name above every name!We repent because we are warned in advance.
