In book of Romans begins with the introduction of Paul, and how he is a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is writing a letter to Rome, and telling them that he plans to come and visit them to have a fruitful ministry with them (1:13). Paul begins to explain the need of righteous, and how people have sinned against God while knowing the truth. They worship ideals, murdering, sexual rituals with members of their own sex, and much more, and God is letting them do it, while Paul states they deserve to die (1:32).
