People's Bible Notes for Romans 10:7

Ro 10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? Another stumbling block with the Jews was the death and burial of Christ. When Jesus died on the cross, they held it to be proof that he was not the Christ. Bring up Christ again from the dead. They still were wont to demand that they should see the Risen Christ with their own eyes, or that he be produced from the realms of the dead. To have met the demands of the Jews would have been sight rather than faith.

    Irene 123: Thanks for the update, I see that you are will book learned and now more then I for I am still learning but I think you miss the point READ John 3 : 16 again and when I do it does not say you will have to have the HOLY SPIRIT but believe in the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Maybe it's the way I believe but it's my way.

    No they can not be saved. Only people that are at an unaccountable age can be saved with out asking Jesus to forgive them of the sins and to ask him to be there savior.

    Bud - Rom. 10:8-9 (Rom.1:7 "called to be saints"). The church in Rome was already established; Paul wasn't writing to sinners. Jesus' church was established in Acts ch. 2 (Acts 2:37-38). The 'calling' and 'believing' were already done for these saints in Acts 2:38. Paul was just reminding them of this because he knew some were weak in their N.T. belief and were thinking about the O.T. law they had

    Thank you, Bud! While we are commanded to judge righteous judgment, and not to hate our brother in our heart by allowing sin upon him; the things that belong only to God, is NOT for us to meddle in! There is a very interesting part in Ezekiel, that speaks of even Sodom and Samaria being restored by God to their former estate; (Eze. 16:53-55); which sheds some great light upon that subject.
