People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:25


Ro 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie. By giving up the worship of the great unseen God to worship an idol; a creature, rather than the Creator. At first, idols were probably designed as only representations, but they finally became objects of worship. Just so, the images in Roman Catholic churches were intended at first as helps in worship, but have become to great multitudes really idols.

    Steve morrow, I agree with you 100%! It is one of many things that the "Western" world has thrown off and rejected, that the Lord commands obedience and subjection of the women in the Assembly. They somehow feel that they are above such things, and don't have to obey; but there is good reason for the woman being ordered to keep silence; and a real woman of God will not teach or dominate over men.

    People are always stating, concerning the Bible, "I believe", "I think", "my opinion": what Jesus said after His 40 days of fasting and praying when satan came to him was, "IT IS WRITTEN ..... "

    To Joey on 12 15 '15 - What Peter wrote, what Paul wrote, what James wrote, what Jude wrote, are all from the 'mouth' of GOD. ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God. Who is - JESUS Jesus Jehovah in O.T. is God's name.

    In Acts, Paul's conversion had not had time to reach Jerusalem when first he went there. In his letter he had been converted for quite some time and was well known and known of in Jesus' church, altho' he hadn't personally been to the Rome church as yet. The things of Rom. happened AFTER the things of Acts. "Come now, let us reason together ....." Isa.1:18.
