  • Sunday Levinus Alaka for verse 17
    Romans 1:16-17 is often used as the key verses to summarize the book of Romans. Paul declares boldly why he is not ashamed of the gospel about Jesus that he preaches around the world. This message is nothing less than the power of God for everyone who believes, both Jews and Gentiles. It is about being declared righteous by God because of our faith in Him. Paul put the same idea this way in Philippians 3:8-9: "that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith." This is God's gospel: God's "good news" for humanity. Paul quotes Habakkuk 2:4 to show this is not a new idea: "The righteous shall live by his faith."
  • Stephende
    I find it difficult to hear Paul's attacks in this chapter. He implicates almost everyone on earth with his puritanical view and probably hypocritically himself. Did he ask firgiveness from the Jews whom he cruelly railed on for converting? He preaching is pedantic and obscure for interpretation of the scripture. He lacks empathy which clearly Jesus himself possesed. Yet Christians everywhere points to obscure passages to defend their heartless views against women, queer folk, and humanity at large as they cling to their narrow views and support a wholly unholy man who sits in the white house. Am I right? I know I am. Who will contest?

    Remember Paul was on his way to persecute Christians when Jesus said to Simon "why do you persecute me Jesus light so bright it blinded him for 3 days and his heart was change in an instant, therefore hypocrisy is out of the picture since Jesus forgave him on the spot and Jesus renamed him Paul to show the change in his heart. So no he can't be a hipocrypt.
  • Adam
    This comment is a false interpretation. What's ironic is the very chapter that's being critiqued predicted this sentiment in verses 20-25. Those with a closed and darkened heart won't comprehend it.
  • Keith
    "You know you are" are not correct...You know (nothing)...
  • Bendito Palavra
    The truth here is ugly, but any that reject it do so to to their own peril. This isn't merely Paul's value judgment but is in fact God's assessment of the human condition. Any and all of us at our natural best are equally abominable in God's eyes and worthy of Hell forever. Paul even confesses this of himself (1 Timothy 1:15).

    Yet God loves the vilest sinner and sent his son Jesus Christ to die on the cross to pay for all our sins. He didn't come to affirm us sinners in our destructive death styles, but to redeem us and deliver us out of it. It's really not love that holds back from warning a sinner, who is already condemned, about the coming judgment (John 3:18). I encourage you to keep reading Romans.
  • Bendito Palavra
    I neglected to mention above that the full list of objectionable behaviors in the latter half of Romans 1 is the result of the wrong choices initially made in verses 21-23. An evil root yields detestable fruit.

    Stephende - it appears to me in Romans that Paul in showing that we are all under sin - Greeks, Jews, Gentiles - no one is perfect except Jesus (and that includes me and you). No one, is exempt. Paul is battling the Pharisee's who think they are exempt from the condemnation of a sinful nature, because of their man-made laws. However, like every Book and Chapter you need to read everything and not just stop at any place you want to stop, because so much is missed. That is like hanging your entire doctrine on one special verse. Romans was written as one letter to be read in its entirety at one time. Very few have the patience, or steadfastness for God, to even complete that one task. But, I would encourage you to try it, and see what the whole of the letter says.
  • ShakespeareIngrid for verse 28
    As long as the road is right, you are not afraid of the road
    It is very clear in verses 26 and 27 what GOD thinks of homosexuality. Those who practice and preach such will pay a steep price.

    The lord is coming its here g

    ...the truth of God into a lie..." I believe that the hierarchy of the world exchanged God for the lie of 'outer space'( being eternal, infinite, encompassing) And 'they' told us we rotate around the sun(sun worship) when in fact we are the center of creation. God made everything around us. "The world also is stablished, that it be not moved". Most people believe we are insignificant, just spinning thru some infinite space when in fact we are awaiting Jesus return and the New Jerusalem when all the elect will live with Christ here on earth with no need for the sun for He will be our Light and His kingdom will have no end. God is very near, on His throne above the firmament. Praise Him daily

  • Shell
    What version Bible are you reading this from? I can't find it. thanks
  • Mick
    I always use King James Bible for study. I read the NIV before I sleep. When I was brand new Born Again I had a Living Bible. It's so marked up I can barely read it lol. It takes me back to those first days of first love for Jesus. I never felt so loved prior to that.
  • Frank H Sleeper
    Adam R... The is literally nothing in the Bible that says the sun, stars, universe that rotates around the Earth. When we try to make such claims it makes us Christians look stupid. What it DOES point out is THIS critical fact: The ENTIRE AMAZING Universe was created - and yet God spent his entire Word talking about his Love and Focus on US!! The universe he created only qualified for a few words

    THAT'S the perspective. WE are the center of attention of God
  • Jim
    I always tell folks if they want the blunt or direct truth about homosexuality and how God feels about it to read Romans 1. Actually reading the whole book of Romans is recommended. Many so called Christian churches have given in to the world and are denying the truth of scripture. Sadly for them God is still alive and has other plans and it won't be good for those that reject His Son which is the truth the ways and the life.
  • Adam
    Praise God for today!
  • Don Morgan
    How do different Christian denominations that allow Lesbian and Gay Bishops, Reverends, etc. deal with Bible verses warning against homosexuality?

    They are fulfilling one part of the scripture they can't help it they are blind. We all have a choice to fulfil any part of the scripture.
    Let's choose wisely
  • Gail Heinze
    They ignore God's true word. Roman's 1 24 thru 26 .
  • Phillip E Gallegos
    I would not venture to call the Christians but hypocrites who distort the Word of God, truth
  • Sf
    God s word is eternal they are spirit and life.
  • Satans Footprints
    Satan has his Footprints Deceiving all Mankind Lying, Cheating, Stealing, Evil of every Kind. Pain, Death and Confusion are all his Master Plans seeking to attack in Close and Distant Lands. Satan the Deceiver promising Grand Schems Leaving Rejection and the Crash of Broken dreams. Christ is The Victor and will be coming soon Satan defeated banished by the Bridegroom.
  • God's Footprints
    Gods Footprints are everywhere for all the World to see He has left His Mark for all Mankind from the Start to Eternity. When lost confused and all alone His Words to us will be made known. For within every Grain of Truth there stands the indent of The Creaters Hand in every Language, Race and Clan The Lord has left His Master Plan. No one can claim they cannot see for in Christ Jesus we have been given Liberty bringing us in Love to bow our knees for He has the Crown of Victory.
  • Treasure Effiong
    Verse 25: Talks about Catholic church. Verse 26: Talks about their rev. Sisters. While verse 27: Talks about their rev. Fathers. That's my point.
  • Joe
    Quite true, but unfortunately the sin has and is continuing to spread more widely throughout the world. And the worst part, society and the world are demanding and getting acceptance - casting shame and hatred upon anyone who speaks against the sin.
  • Daryl
    i wish everyone would read romans chapter 1. because it shows the current state of our sin tainted world today and how satan has turned the minds of men from the clear truths CLEARLY PUT FORTH by GOD
