Bible Commentary for Romans 1:32

Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:32

1:32 Not only do the same, but have pleasure in those that practise them - This is the highest degree of wickedness. A man may be hurried by his passions to do the thing he hates; but he that has pleasure in those that do evil, loves wickedness for wickedness' sake. And hereby he encourages them in sin, and heaps the guilt of others upon his own head.

People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:32

Ro 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God. The ordinance or decree of God condemning such sinners. That ordinances is next stated. It is that those who do such deeds are worthy of death. The heathen moralists admitted this. Yet in spite of this knowledge they not only continued in their vile sins, but took pleasure in them. No deeper degree of depravity can be found than when men call evil good, and cherish it. This dark picture of heathen vices in Ro 1:18-32 is not overdrawn. It is fully confirmed by such heathen writers as Tacitus, Horace, Seneca, and Juvenal. The conclusion, from these facts, is that all such persons are under condemnation.

  • Learn Spiritual Warfare Ephesians 6 on Romans 1:32
    Matthew 12


    When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.


    Then he saith, I will return into my house (your body) from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it EMPTY, swept, and garnished.


    Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

    Ephesians 6

    If we do not fill our spiritual house, with the Bible; we will have spiritual warfare. Which as you see in Eph. 6, "they" are invisible. They don't want to wander around without bodies. The unsaved, the wicked or the unlearned of the wisdom of the Bible, can be attacked.

    "They are identified by their Fruit: hindering, harassing, sicknesses, depression, violence, sexual impurities, cursing, occult fascinations, hatred of Jesus, or antichrist spirits.

    We must be filled with the Holy Spirit. You must rely on the victory of Jesus over the devil. We must understand the power of Jesus's Blood atonement for sin.

    Sometimes I wonder why we argue about what day is Sabbath on; Who killed Cain; which Bible Version to read....

    We need to be learning what our Authority in Jesus Name is. Authority of the believer over demonic beings; how to bind them and cast them out. How to pray for the sick and those oppressed by Satan and his agents of suffering. How to keep our families covered in prayer.

    Take a good look at the madness of the world we're living in. Do you see the fruits now?

    1 Peter 5:8

    Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

  • George harrison on Romans 1:32
    We are now living in a day that right is wrong and wrong is right and people find pleasure in the sins of others rather than stand up against it. we as Christians are shepherds of the flock and are to stand up against the wolves of the world. stand up stand up for Jesus. This starts at home, then out into the world.
  • The Woes that should be given our attention - in Reply on Romans 1:32
    Isaiah 5

    20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

    22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

    23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

    24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

    >These kind of statements reveal the long suffering character of God. If we can wrap our minds around it; first we must change ourselves. Hallelujah, because we have the mind of Christ, and we have the Holy Spirit to be our Helper.

    We know what He cares about, and we can add that knowledge in when we are witnessing to the unsaved.

    By prayer to the Lord of the Harvest, we don't have to cold-contact , evil, violent people. He will bring those who are ready to hear the Gospel... who is Jesus.
  • Robert - in Reply on Romans 1:32

    I hope you are not done with this.

    Scriptures tell us to be diligent and search them out.

    Scriptures tell us to Ask, and to seek.

    Scriptures tell us to be prepared to defend our beliefs.

    Scriptures tell us to love one another,

    By edification,

    By prayer,

    By fellowship,

    By spreading the Gospel.

    Gifts, knowledge, conviction, strength, teaching; all come from the Holy Spirit (Comforter, etc.)

    Although we may disagree with our brother or sister, we should take it to the Lord in prayer, search the Scriptures, and be prepared for the light received from the Holy Ghost.

    Prayers and Blessings for your continued journey. We never know how Jehovah or Yahshua will use us to touch another.
  • Osodi Abimbola on Romans 1:32
    When someone refuses to sin but sees nothing wrong in such or rather encourage d practice, it's just like not drinking poison but hailing d person drinking d poison; which = not wanting to go to hell while aiding those heading there.
    This is evil cuz it means wasting the grace of GOD by making ppl move ****her away from HIM.
