Romans 1: Man's Fall

The first chapter of Romans prepares us for one of the most theological books in the New Testament. It tells of man's failure to know honor God and thank Him. It tells the consequences. It prepares those who study it to accept the responsibility for being a sinner. It also prepares those who study it to cry out for a Savior. This will be a very long study through Romans. This is only the first chapter.

The Natural Unnatural

Updated a long time ago.

God didn't simply give us a list of rules to follow. Each act of God comes through His holiness. Each command is a statement of holiness. Man's rebellion against God is a rebellion against holiness.
Jesus said that He is the way, the truth and the life. There is no way to separate those. The way, the truth and the life is a person. You can't have the truth without the way, You can't have the way without the truth. You will not receive life if you haven't agreed with the way and truth.
Many people don't have true life because they have exchanged God's truth for human reasoning. They have chosen peace with the world over peace with God.
So, there is a progression against God's truth and His holiness. Sin is progressive. This is natural but not godly. Our fallen condition causes us to continue in our sin.
