1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the just shall live by faith.
1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has showed it unto them.
1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
1:23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four – footed beasts, and creeping things.
1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and serv ed the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (Roman 1:18-25 KJV)
As most of you know, I write this blog to teach. Not what I think it is all about but, like verse seventeen say, I attempt to teach what is written. As I have said in a pervious blog, there is more than one side to an interpretation. I insert the Bible passage so that you may see what I am writing about and reference it for yourself and, maybe, interpret it differently.
As stated in verse sixteen, this is to all people (or other Bible interpretations), not just to one person or those that prefer the King James version of the Bible. There are those that shun you or speak badly about you because you do not bow down to God according to their presumption of the Word.
So long as you praise Him for all things, do the things the Lord ask of you, and sincerely attempt to adhere to the Commandments of God, there is a chance you will be accepted into Heaven.
The Creator made all things, including us yet we are tainted by choice. God did not do it to us, we did it to ourselves. Now we will forever be trying to prove we are good enough to enter Heaven. To do this is not only to do good things but to also have a clean mind and heart.
Do not lose your soul by putting things before God, like the love of money, valor, and all other things that God frown upon. The Lord will give all of that to you if you put Him first. Time is not on your side, time is not your friend, therefore you must cleanup your mindset and tongue now.
Remember one other thing. There are those that say they are religious, go to church, say all sorts of things that is religious, but their mind and heart is unclean. Beware! Verse twenty-two say it all. They make you believe they are wise, but they are fools. Beware! Before you open your mouth THINK and ask the question ‘what would Jesus do’ or ‘what would Jesus say’. Beware!
