People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:28


Ro 1:28 God gave them over to a reprobate mind. A thought is repeated here that has already been hinted, and is often taught in the Scriptures. The man who turns from the truth will be allowed to have his way, will fall deeper and deeper into error, and will reap all the evil consequences of loving darkness rather than light. Those who hate the truth are "given over to a reprobate mind". A reprobate mind is one rejected of God. Which are not convenient. Not decent, or honorable.

    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.
