Discussion for Romans 1

    The Natural affection in 1:31 means LOVE. So without natural affection means hatred. It can also mean that, scientifically, naturally positive attracts negative. Unlike poles should repel but that is not the case today. Men are attracted to men and likewise the woman. Verse 32 says, not only those who do or engage themselves in such things are worthy of death but also those who approve of it.

    I LOVE ROMANS 1:12!!
  • Rena
    Verse 4 of this chapter is the key to understanding that the book of Romans compares and contrasts the sinful Adamic nature of mankind to the Holy nature of Jesus, God's Son. His Holiness is the basis for His resurrection, mankind's salvation, and our daily walk with Him.

    Hey there Austin! Yep, I hear what you're saying. It's funny, because the god they worship doesn't mind their godlessness. And they think they are moral. Verse 28 sure fits. Don't know your email.
