- Unlike the other churches like Galatians, when Paul writes to Romans, he is writing to a group of Christian converts that he has never actually met before. Despite not knowing his audience personally, his message to the Romans is similar to that of the Galatians- a bad destiny comes to those who do not remain faithful and follow evil and God determines the fate of those who have faith. Near the beginning of Paul’s incredibly long letter to the Romans, he warns them outright of their destinies if they reject all that is true and commit sins, proclaiming, “But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distr...   [tags: Christianity, God, Destiny, New Testament]

Were Romans Obsessed with Violence?

- Were Romans Obsessed with Violence. In many modern books written about Ancient Rome and her people, the Romans are often portrayed as brutal and unforgiving people who enjoyed violence and thought it amusing to see people being injured and killed to the point of obsession. It is my aim to establish whether this classification is justified or if it is simply an exaggeration of what a small group of people enjoyed. While it is known that in Rome there were gladiatorial fights, public beatings and the keeping of slaves was legal (and common), it is also important to understand just exactly how advanced the Romans were....   [tags: Ancient Rome Roman History]

Sin, Death and Life, and Dominion in Romans 6:1-14

- “What then are we to say?” entreats Paul in Romans 6:1. “Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound?” Paul answers his own query in the section that follows, leading up to the conclusions that Christians are “under grace” (v. 14). For Paul the transition of the person from sin to grace relates to the person’s identity and belonging. Sin, in Romans 6:1-14, means less a person’s actions specifically and more the claims to which a person belongs. With sin comes death and dominion that, apart from Christ, define who persons are in themselves and in their allegiances....   [tags: Scripture Analysis ]
