Romans (2010)

Romans (2010)

November 2010 - December 2014

Romans has always been one of the favorite books of thoughtful Christians. In this epistle, the apostle Paul logically delineates the foundation and structure of Christian doctrine. The righteousness of God has been accurately identified as the central message of this epistle. How the righteousness of God relates to a human history of suffering, pain, and injustice, has been a frequent question through the ages. In Romans, Paul's answer shows that this question cannot be addressed in a sound bite or executive summary. The character of God, the volition of man, the history of man's rejection of God, must form the backdrop to a serious discussion on the righteousness of God. But an accurate understanding of the righteousness of God also reveals to us the magnificence of God's grace and His gracious plan of justification available freely to all mankind.

But this does not stop with simple justification, but also explains God's righteousness in the life of the believer after salvation and how God's righteousness is vindicated in history as indicated through His faithful love for Israel.

Passage: Romans 1:26-32
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 7 mins 27 secs
The mass media has indoctrinated most Americans with the idea that homosexuals are born that way. This is completely false. No scientific facts support this. Not one. The idea is only misplaced hope and fantasy speculation. While all sin is sin, and homosexuality is not some sort of super sin, it is still a sin, and still unacceptable and should not be made legal or the basis for same-sex marriage. This study provides documentation which shows once again that the Bible is right and modern man is suppressing the truth in unrighteousness.

Passage: Romans 2:1
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 3 mins 42 secs
Immoral degeneracy isn't the only consequence of rejecting the knowledge of God. Moral degeneracy is also very common. Religion is one form of moral degeneracy, but there are others who are very moral and upright who believe that they too have lived a fine upright life and deserve heaven. But even the most moral have also sinned. So how can a sinner get into God's heaven?

Passage: Romans 2:5-16
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 0 mins 12 secs
Every religion except Christianity emphasizes human ability to please God. The Scripture also emphasizes that God judges man according to works (Romans 2:6). Works are the basis for the judgment at the Great White Throne Judgment. Here in Romans 2:6-16, Paul also affirms that those who persevere and work hard and do well will receive eternal life. However, there is a catch. This lesson explains that catch.

Passage: Romans 2:17-25
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 26 secs
The Word of God makes it clear that at the point of salvation, we are imputed with God's perfect Righteousness (+ R). So what is Paul talking about when he says in your sins? Weren't our sins paid for at the cross? Once again emphasizing the importance of the Old Testament to correctly understand what Paul is teaching, this lessons looks at the Mosaic Law and the importance of keeping the law in the Old Testament. Yet, the Law showed that man cannot keep the Law and remain cleansed any more than we today can achieve perfect righteousness alone. The Mosaic Law clearly illustrated what still is true today - man is morally degenerate and needs a Savior.

Passage: Romans 2:25-29
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 51 secs
In Romans, Paul tells us what we believe and why we believe it. As we get into verse 17, Paul begins to address the Jews and their boastfulness. What does Paul mean when he uses the term ?Jew?? What does it mean to be a Jew? This lesson breaks down the history of Judaism and takes a look at the different ways this term (and other terms for Israel) have developed, as well as what Paul is saying about the significance of circumcision.

Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 24 secs
Is there a sufficient moral pathway to God that a man can take on his own? As we continue in our study of Romans, Paul again reminds us how God demonstrates His Righteousness with regard to the human race. In this lesson we learn about the significance of circumcision and the difference between a circumcised and uncircumcised heart.

Passage: Romans 3:1-12
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 43 secs
"There is none righteous, no, not one." We have all heard of total depravity, but what does that really mean? Romans 3 is perhaps one of the most debated chapters in the Bible with regard to the beliefs associated with Calvinism. Many arguments come out of what Paul says about faith. In this lesson, we are introduced to how truth, faithfulness, and righteousness are connected, and how closely related faithfulness is to truth. The ten rhetorical questions Paul poses in the first ten verses of this chapter merit a lot of consideration and investigation.
