Discussion for Romans 1

    In Romans Chapter 1: 20-25 refers to people depicting God as something he's not. Like in verse 23 it says "they changed the glory of an uncorruptible God into an image made like corruptible to man ..." what that is saying along with the other verses you asked about, is that (man) meaning people of the world took god and made him something he is not. I can explain better if you contact me via email

    ACTS 3:26 UNTO YOU FIRST GOD HAVING RAISED UP HIS SON JESUS-SENT HIM-TO BLESS YOU IN TURNING EVERYONE ONE OF YOU FROM HIS INIQUITIES *** JOHN 18:37 PILATE THEREFORE SAID UNTO HIM ART THOU A KING THEN--JESUS ANASWERED--THOU SAYEST THAT I AM A KING TO THIS END WAS I BORN AND FOR THIS CAUSE CAME I INTO THE WORLD THAT I SHOULD BEAR WITNESS UNTO THE TRUTH EVERYONE THAT IS OF THE TRUTH HEARETH MY VOICE

    Randy; 20-25 tells how God is the Lord and Master over ALL the world. He creates and makes it after His own counsel and will, and judges men by it. Do you remember what Nebuchadnezzar said about God after he was converted? that He rules over the kingdoms of men, and sets up over them the basest of men? Men think that they make the world and their own destiny; but we can do NOTHING without Him!
  • A disciple
    Dear Geraldine; Jesus said that He came NOT to abolish the Law, but to completely make it full! Up to as far as if the heavens and the earth should pass away, NOT ONE Yode or one Tittle shall pass away from the Law till ALL be fulfilled. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus; so that our life should establish the Law, to teach and convict others by the Spirit and Light of His Nature in us!
  • Geraldine cole
    Praise Jesus we are no longer under the old law we are now under Grace we no long live like the people did when Jesus walk the Earth thousand of years ago when Jesus die on the cross he freeed us from the law.the whole bible is true but we don"t live by the old testament that was before Jesus came to die for us on the cross.
  • Randy
    Does anyone think verses 20-25 refers to evolution? Especially verse 22!
