People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:15


Ro 6:15 Shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? This is the old question referred to in Ro 6:1. The caviller in Paul's time, as well as in our time, objected that grace, forgiveness of sin, was an encouragement to sin. Paul shows, with much emphasis, that this is a false charge, since grace, forgiveness, implied that the sinner had died to sin. It is those who have been freed from the dominion of sin who are delivered from its penalties.

Discussion for Romans 6

  • Jacob Ameh Sani
    Verse 19: Holiness is a product of committed righteous life style that mirrors Jesus Christ in you to the world. Righteousness is commitment to saying and doing what is right at all the time in season and out of season as a life style. Conversely, righteousness is commitment to avoiding sin and evil tendencies in season and out of season as a life style. You cant see God without holiness.

  • A disciple
    In the parable about the lord who forgave his servant, and that same servant went out and took his fellow-servant by the throat, saying, Pay me what you owe! The other servants were grieved when they saw that and told their lord: so he called him and said to him, I forgave you all that debt, because you asked me; shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow-servants, like I had pity on you?
