  • This verse shows how we all inherited sin from Adam and sin results in death so that is why we all die. Through Adam's one sin and trangression he passed on sin to all of his offspring.
  • Revival 2013 for verse 8
    God has shown his love to all humanity ever since the creation of the world his love has been evident. From His invisible qualities becoming our gifts to see like the trees and the stars and all else He has created surely God has shown His love for thee. At the right time God sent His only Son into the world and took upon the sins of all humanity so that we could live eternally with Our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. While we were powerless to redeem our sinful selves at birth Christ died for us and this is how He showed his great love for all, by becoming an atoning sacrifice for you and me.
  • Gavin Swedberg for verse 5
    I believe this verse is speaking to me directly. I was in a terrible accident that left me paralyzed from the ribs down. I celebrated three years of recocery three days ago and i'm filled with the Holy Spirit today. I used to be sad, now i'm truly happy with my life because i accept Jesus as my savior. The hope I have to walk is now genuine, for I know I will be blessed by the Lord and will walk today in the name of Jesus!!!!!
  • Dolapo
    This p***age made me understand that regardless of our righteous living,we have inherited sin through our father; Adam. Therefore,we have to count on the grace of that one man; Jesus to make us holy and acceptable unto God. Halleluyah!
  • Anselma
    Romans 5:8 - It escapes my human comprehension to think that God, even before the foundation of the world, had us in His master plan and made provision for our escape from hell through the death of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, on the cross of Calvary. His thoughts towards us, children of men are so bountiful that we should always stand in awe when we think of what would have happened if God, in His mercy, did not first love us.
  • Theresa for verse 8
    It means to me that God loves us no matter what . He sent his son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
  • Plas Jaramillo for verse 8
    I like Darby's rendering "commends His love to us." So, if we receive His love it is ours and all we do is act accodingly. Praise God! Hallelujah!!
  • Marluva verge
    I was awakened to God's voice saying Romans 5. I pray for understanding of what God is trying to tell me.
  • Shanice
    We could only repay God by giving him our all. All in everything although I try to remain close to God there are things that try to separate us. Have me and my family in your prayers.
  • Susan Dalton for verse 17
    Romans 5:17. The first Adam fails; the second Adam prevails.
  • Nelisiwe for verse 8
    It's amazing to think that God gave up his son for me and loves me unconditionally regardless of my short comings yet I fail to lay down my heart and love not just those who are close to me. I pray that he helps me and plant his humbleness in my heart for I know that if he lives in me all will be as he wants me as his child to carry his name.
  • Andrew
    I believe in the cross of Christ and his blood.
  • Romans 5:5 Hope will never disappoint or shame us, because God's love is in our hearts and that is established by the giving the Holy Spirit to us. You see if we have God in our lives and truly seek him first, we have guidance, hope and faith. Things hope for are things not yet seen. FAITH is by Christ dying for the ungodly, he gave hope to all mankind that fall short of the glory of God, and we all fall short! So having Hope in God's glory will never shame us and having been instructed to do all things for the GLORY OF GOD. That means that EVERYTHING we do we must do in HOPE, so that they are lives testimonies for God's glory and that there is Hope of everlasting life. That is how we grow spiritually!

  • Tamara Stewart
    I thought the last verses concerning the abundance of sin and how it abounded. I though it was so beautiful that the more sin streamed in great abundance so did God's Grace.

  • Queenie for verse 8
    Ithink the verseis trying to tell us no matter how people treat you or behavior is not nice and act around you you should love them anyway because we act like that to Jesus and he still love us he died to save our sins
  • Frederick for verse 19
    I am grateful to almighty God that He had a plan of salvation that would span the length of time
  • Susan Dalton for verse 8
    "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

    Have you ever been in the presence of someone whose behavior made you want to pull back from them? Naturally, you did not desire to be around them. You did not want to extend yourself out to that one. In other words, you did not want to love that person.

    You also know this person cannot love you. They may relate to you, but, as they are they cannot love.

    You feel this is a one-sided relationship. You love, they do not. It does not sound like a relationship you want to invest in. It does not sound like a person you want "to love." But, that is Christ's love. That is God's love.

    When we were very unlovely, God loved us. When we could not love God, He loved us. When we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    That is love. That is the love wherewith we are to love one another.
  • Brother Francis for verse 14
    Thru the Innocent blood of the Lord Jesus....Psalms 32 v 1&2
    I am the Blessed 'one'! Thank you LORD.
  • Theodore A. Jones
    The word law in Romans 2:13, 5:20, Galatians 3:19 & 1 Timothy 3:19 is referencing a law that has been added to the law which increased the sin of Jesus' crucifixion to the level of unilateral accountability. The word trespass in Romans 5:20 is the single trespass of Jesus' crucifixion which is the sin of murder caused by bloodshed. No sin is a direct benefit especially when bloodshed has caused the loss of a man's life. Therefore the crucifixion of Jesus is not a direct benefit. And is only beneficial by entering a change of the law
    after his crucifixion so that it is only by the faith to obey God by this law that a grant to escape the penalty of eternal death is tendered to an individual who obeys God this Way. However the consequence for the person who refuses will result in that person serving the penalty of eternal death.
    (Thanks for asking what I think)

    We were born into Babylon -naked, screaming, knowing nothing and babbling- and this is our classroom. We're here to learn those things that are referred to as Divine Law. It's not a law book of iudgments and punishments, which is the kind of Babel that is usually sold by any number of man's religions, but rather offers something quite the opposite. It is Whole, Complete and Good. Patience over frustration. Your choice. Gratefulness over regrets and loss. Your choice. Compassion over aggression. Your choice. Admiration over jealousy and envy. Your choice. Forgiveness that leads to Grace over grudges and revenge. Your choice. Eternal life over neverending death. Your choice. AHHH. There it is. Who offers that iudgment, diuision, and punishment? You. Nobody else. "Only God can judge me" is a popular refrain heard in Babylon. But it's not exactly true. You get Eternal Life. You WILL have it. Right now, we're living in neverending death. Choice.

    You will be Ssaved, whether you like it or not.

    Fill up with "Sin" - hatreds, regrets, sorrows, shame, fears - and a Baptism by Fire will come. It's not for punishment or "paying dues". That's man's silly iudgmental view. It's purification for Eternity. While it Is True that God Is Love, Grace and Mercy, Eternity brokers no such forgiveness. It's not about "fair", but rather an immutable (unchangeable) law of Reality. It's like gravity. If you jump out of an airplane without a parachute and smack into the ground, you can talk about how it isn't fair all you want, but in the end it's just a losing and ridiculous complaint. That's what "Hell" is about. It's an Energy.

    What comes out - our Eternal Spirits that have all of the Tools of Eternal Creation.

    The language of Prophesie is ONLY UNDERSTOOD upon Receiving the Divine Light of Grace (aka holy Ghost). Don't See it yet? Then put the Book down and work on these: building Love, offering others Patient Guidance & Kind Influence, forgiving others which paves the way to Grace, recalling & giving Thanks for Blessings which paves the way to a Loving Admiration of Life in Joyful Gratefulness which in turn births Hope. BE COMPASSIONATE. Do these things and when you're ready, Receive the Light of Divine Grace. THESE THINGS ARE OF THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST.

    How can I understand the Romans.Can connect for real explanation.
  • StephendeRafael
    This question of sin and forgiveness, wow. Paul takes it on starting with Adam, the first transgressor. Not Eve, because she was seduced by the Devil and by the Devil gave birth to that first murderer, Cain. Both suffered the consequences being cast out of the garden, and procreating an evil race from the Devils child, Cain. But the law came by Moses so sin wasn't imputed, but the consequences were. Jesus was appointed to attone for the original sin because he came to destroy the works of the devil. But as in Adams day, all must face the consequences of their sin in this world. All must stand in judgement before God for their actions and suffer the conequences be it torment for evil doers or glory for the believers.
  • KP
    Sin is dead to the extent of penalty, spiritual death, for both the believer and the unbeliever. Through his death, Jesus Christ atoned for all sin. So, the issue for the unbeliever is to receive a pardon. To "receive the atonment". To be condemned no more.

    All of us were born condemned. Even before we committed our first sin. The entire human race was condemned when Adam sinned.

    The good news is that God the Father chose to impute the penalty of sin, spiritual death, to his son, Jesus Christ. Before the cross, by promise, man looked forward to the coming of the second person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ, to die on our behalf to atone for sins. The promise.

    Today, we look back in time, by faith, to the cross. The finished work of Jesus Christ.

    The good news is, that once we believe, we can never lose our status as "sons". Even when we sin. Why? Because God could not condemn us even if he wanted. There is no penalty. A type of "double jeopardy". So, God could never impute the penalty of sin to anyone. Sin still carries with it the weight of trouble. But, it does not carry the weight of spiritual death, thanks to Jesus Christ.

    Prior to this i would like to share something about our topic, (Romans 5:12)for by one man sin entered the world and death by sin so death passed upon all men for in that all have sinned.....We know that the bible clearly state that both of them disobeyed God's command, as stated in this verse FOR BY ONE MAN SIN ENTERED THE WORLD,One man means not particular to one man only but two person,(Genesis 2:24)meaning they shall be in one flesh. In (Genesis 2:16-17) Thou shalt not eat of it, for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. When Eve begin to have fellowship with the devil, She begin to have a desire about the fruit in the midst of the garden, the devil expalin to her that you will not die if you eat the fruit but rather will be like God, Adam saw Eve that when She ate the fruit she did not die, but God said you will die, so when Eve gave him the fruit after he ate this, their eyes where opened and saw that they were both naked and covered with them leafs, and so the bible said In the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die, they died on that day because for the Lord one thousand day for the Lord is only ONE DAY that is why they died on that day, but because of God's love to them before sending out from the garden God clothed them with skin of animals (Lamb)for the remission of their sin because God commanded them only ONE COMMAND! (Hebrews 9:22) without shedding of Blood there is no remission of sin. because there was a sacrifice blood for them a blemish, without spot of a lamb. (John 1:29) Lamb of God who taketh away the sins of the world.

    This is very important matter to all of us,the sin which committed by Adam & Eve was forgiven but there was something happend there was a consequence a far reaching consequence of their sin, we inherit the original sin which is death from hell, the only way to escape this is to have reconcilliation with Christ thru baptism in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins, this is the only key for us to enter God's Kingdom without repentance and without baptism we will all likewise perish. (John 3:3-7)
    Without being born again of water and of spirit we cannot enter into the Kingdom of God, for there is two salvation God wants to happen to all, being baptized of water & spirit and after this process we must continue to be with Lord in his second coming (Titus 2:13) This the TRUTH the truth that will save us from damnation, because Jesus said I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE no man cometh unt the Father except thru me.

    Godbless you heart...

    hi brittney baptist the most amazing preacher i have found is Andrew Womack he has a site awmi all his stuff is free he is good havent found anyone better .what i said about adam and eve i did not know either god said he would teach if you ask so he did no bragging rights here
  • Brittney
    Dan are u out there the comment that you made on 10/28/2010 that was deep what religion are you
  • Dan
    Romans 5:12 for by one man sin entered the world and death by sin so death passed upon all men for in that all have sinned..... one day I asked God to teach me something I was on an assembly line and wanted to get my mind on something else to help the day go by.so he gave me this verse. I did not think there was anything there for me to know.I already knew about Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruit . so i said Lord I already know all about that. And he said to me Eve ate first why did sin and death not enter the world when eve ate.and I said yes lord I never saw that before why did sin not enter the world when eve ate so over time this is what I think I have come to understand in order for Adam to sin he first needed a law 1John 3:4 whosoever commiteth sin transgresseth also the Law for sin is the transgression of the Law. Romans 4:15 for the Law worketh wrath for where no Law is there is no transgression without Law Adam could not become a transgressor Romans 4:16 For until the Law Sin was in the world but Sin is not imputed when there is no Law Genesis 2:16 And the Lord God commanded the Man saying of every tree in the garden thou mayest freely eat there of but of the tree of the Knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it for the day there in that thou eatest there of thou shalt surely die ...the commandment was only to Adam you you you... now I do not care what Eve said to the serpent she was not under the law because sin and death did not enter the world when she ate but when Adam ate she died being that she was made from him bone of his bone flesh of his flesh and when they had children they also were the children of Adam bone of his bone flesh of his flesh born dead what Adam lost when he ate was eternal life.there was no death in the world . anyway if God gave Eve the Law then sin and death would have come into the world by the woman and Jesus would have been born with sin through his mother no salvation
