Discussion for Romans 1

  • Zandra on Romans 1:27
    Dose it say in the Bible (even an old barn needs a new coat of somethings )
  • Isreal on Romans 1:27
    When I believe I know how God can work and what He will or won't do or what is even realistic and possible based off of my experience and understanding of the world I am actually learning on that understanding. One must discard what their senses, knowledge and experience tells them is possible for that is the knowledge and understanding of man. Instead know that anything is possible for our Father regardless of what we have been taught. He did drop meat from the sky and produced bread on the ground and brought water from rocks for the Israelites while they traveled through the wilderness. Those are what seem to be extremely unrealistic and impossible tasks in our eyes yet for God they were delivered daily as if no problem. If God wanted me could produce a brand new vehicle out of thin air and drop it in your driveway if He chose to do so regardless of what you may understand to possible. Place no limitations on God and what he can or will do and be amazed at the wonders He will reveal to you.
  • Michelle on Romans 1:27
    This is the only other verse in the KJV that mentions the word "unseemly". More proof of what I already concluded: "unseemly" means "against its own nature" not "against man-made customs".
  • Row on Romans 1:27
    So if u believe Gods word is not true.(who then created you?Gods word he says ""I know every hair on your head "".I formed you in your mothers whom.God created the heavens and the earth.No one created God God has always exsisted.God spoke the worlds into exsistance..Have you ever Read Gods word.?Its a sad state of a person when you die there is Heaven there is Hell. .When you die your fate is sealed.salvation is a free gift.who turns down a free gift?.Think about it.

    My dear brother indeed the words of the Holy Spirit are true so the Holy Bible are also true to the Christian because we walk by faith without faith the words in the bible are not understood because the words of the Bible are spiritual not of the natural. May love follow you in words and faith.

  • Solomon N. on Romans 1:27
    It is abnormal when a man is seeking sexual interest from fellow man . But remember those those who think they can correct God now will be sorry when they will stand before the judgement seat.
  • Alwyn Charles on Romans 1:27
    The Bible is the Authoritative word of God. For all those that know everything but really know nothing. There is a day of Judgement.
