The Christian Life Introduction The Book of Romans is what Martin Luther called the most important letter that Paul ever wrote. The theological arguments and implications of Romans are far-reaching and the many topics are interconnected and entirely consistent with one another in argumentation and style. Within this cogent and comprehensive theological statement of belief and faith, Paul writes extensively on what it means to live a Christian life. He combines his understanding of the fall of humankind, the Old Testament law, and the fulfillment of the law in Jesus Christ with the post-Pentecostal period where the Holy Spirit dwells in believers who have professed their faith in Jesus as their Savior. According to Rom 8, the Spirit is integral to the Christian’s sanctification.

Earlier Christians have suffered great turmoil for the religion that exists today and people should be thankful everyday that this wonderful religion is here on earth today. The religion is truly a great one, although many other religions branch off of this one, creating beliefs that better fit the people at the time and place. It’s truly amazing how one person can have the strength to stand up and say what he believes in, instead of following others around. That person is not always alone, there is always somebody who believes the same and together that’s how people create something great.
