Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P18 (12-04-19)
In the struggles of life, with its trials and tribulations, we are to hold onto faith. Faith is not a blind faith. Faith is in an object, in the one who has fulfilled all his promises, and who will fulfill all the promises he has made, and the only one who has the authority and power to do so.

Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P7 (11-04-19)
Are you ashamed of the gospel? There is no need to be ashamed. Why? It is the power of God unto salvation of all men.

Paul also describes this wrath of God that is being revealed. Follow along in Romans 1:18-27, as Bob continues sharing from the book of Romans.
Bob shares also from Genesis 2, the origin of this wrath of God against sin. He explains how sin entered this world and what happened to the first created human beings on earth, of Adam and Eve in the garden, and the consequence of death to all men because of sin. He explains how the root of sin is the suppression of truth. Man suppresses truth in their unrighteousness and wickedness. From Romans, we come to understand this futile thinking of man that leads to greater and greater depravity. Man is born dead to God, born alive to this world but dead to God.
