10 Facts About Sinning10 Facts About Sinning
Romans 5:12-21

The Epistle to the Romans, often shortened to Romans, is the sixth book in the New Testament. Biblical scholars agree that it was composed by the Apostle Paul to explain that salvation is offered through the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the longest of the Pauline epistles and is considered his "most important theological legacy"

The main purpose of the epistle to the Romans is given by Paul in Romans 1:1, where he reveals that he is set apart by God for the purpose of preaching the Gospel, which he explains. He wishes to impart to the Roman readers a gift of encouragement and assurance in all that God has freely given them Romans 1:11–12; 1 Corinthians 2:12.

The purposes of the apostle in dictating this letter to his Amanuensis Tertius Romans 16:22 is also articulated in the second half of chapter 15:

Paul asks for prayers for his forthcoming journey to Jerusalem; he hopes that the offering collected from the Gentile churches will be accepted there. Paul is planning to travel to Rome from Jerusalem and to spend some time there before moving on to Spain; he hopes the Roman church will support his mission to Spain.

Since Paul has never been to Rome, he outlines his gospel so that his teaching will not be confused by that of "false teachers". Paul is aware that there is some conflict between Gentile and Jewish Christians in the Roman church, and he addressed those concerns (chapters 13 and the first half of 14). While the Roman church was presumably founded by Jewish Christians, the exile of Jews from Rome in AD 49 by Claudius resulted in Gentile Christians taking leadership positions.

Prayer of Thanksgiving Romans 1:8–15

He commends the Romans for their faith. Romans 1:8 Paul also speaks of the past obstacles that have blocked his coming to Rome earlier. Romans 1:11–13

Salvation in Christ Romans 1:16–8:39 Romans  Righteousness of God Romans 1:16–17

Paul's announcement that he is not "ashamed" (epaiscúnomai) of his gospel because it holds power (dúnamis). These two verses form a backdrop for the rest of the book. First, we note that Paul is unashamed of his love for this gospel that he preaches about Jesus Christ. He also notes that he is speaking to the "Jew first." Romans 1:16  There is significance to this, but much of it is scholarly conjecture as the relationship of Paul the Apostle and Judaism is still debated. We are hard-pressed to find an answer to such a question without knowing more about the audience in question.

Condemnation: The Universal corruption of Gentiles and Jews Romans 1:18–3:20

The judgment of God Romans 1:18–32

Paul now begins into the main thrust of his letter. He begins by suggesting that humans have taken up ungodliness and wickedness for which there will be wrath from God. Romans 1:18 People have taken God's invisible image and made him into an idol. Paul draws heavily here from the Wisdom of Solomon. Romans 31 He condemns unnatural sexual behavior and warns that such behavior will result in a depraved body and mind Romans 1:26–27  and says that people who do such things (including murder and wickedness Romans 1:29  are worthy of death. Romans 1:32  Paul stands firmly against the idol worship system which was common in Rome.

Paul's warning of hypocrites Romans 2:1–4

On the traditional Protestant interpretation, Paul here calls out Jews who are condemning others for not following the law when they themselves are also not following the law.

Justification: The Gift of Grace and Forgiveness through Faith Romans 3:21–5:11

Paul says that a righteousness from God has made itself known apart from the law, to which the law and prophets testify, and this righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus to all who believe. Romans 3:21–22 He describes justification – legally clearing the believer of the guilt and penalty of sin – as a gift of God, Romans 3:24  and not the work of man (lest he might boast), but by faith. Romans 3:28

Assurance of salvation Romans 5–11
In chapters five through eight, Paul argues that believers can be assured of their hope in salvation, having been freed from the bondage of sin. Paul teaches that through faith, Romans 3:28 Romans 4:3  the faithful have been joined with Jesus Romans 5:1 and freed from sin. Romans 6:1–2, Romans 6:18

Believers should celebrate in the assurance of salvation. Romans 12:12 This promise is open to everyone since everyone has sinned, Romans 3:23 save the one who paid for all of them. Romans 3:24 Romans

In Romans chapters 9–11 Paul addresses the faithfulness of God to Israel, where he says that God has been faithful to His promise. Paul hopes that all of Israel will come to realize the truth Romans  9:1–5 since he himself was also an Israelite, Romans 11:1  and had in the past been a persecutor of Early Christians. In Romans 9–11 Paul talks about how the nation of Israel has been cast away, and the conditions under which Israel will be God's chosen nation again: when Israel returns to its faith, sets aside its unbelief. Romans 11:19–24

In Romans 7:1, Paul says that humans are under the law while we live: "Know ye not...that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?" However, Jesus' death on the cross makes believers dead to the law Romans 7:4, "Wherefore, my brethren, ye are also become dead to the law by the body of Christ", according to an antimonite interpretation.

Transformation of believers Romans 12–15:13

From Romans chapter 12 through the first part of Romans chapter 15, Paul outlines how the Gospel transforms believers and the behavior that results from such a transformation. This transformation is described as a “renewing of your mind” Romans 12:2, “the heart of the matter.” Romans 34 It is a transformation so radical that it amounts to a “a transfiguration of your brain,” a "metanoia", a “mental revolution.”

Paul goes on to describe how believers should live. Christians are no longer under the law, that is, no longer bound by the law of Moses, but under the grace of God, see Law and grace. We do not need to live under the law because to the extent our minds have been renewed, we will know “almost instinctively” what God wants of us. The law then provides an “objective standard” for judging progress in the “lifelong process” of our mind’s renewal.

To the extent they have been set free from sin by renewed minds Romans 6:18, believers are no longer bound to sin. Believers are free to live in obedience to God and love everybody. As Paul says in Romans 13:10, "love  worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of law".
