In analyzing the book of Romans chapters 1-8, the four areas of interest that I will be covering are; the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and culture. Because there was a fault line a crack in the Roman society and culture Paul used this to frame the book of Romans. Dr. Jimmy Deyoung states in the video, “Romans: the letter that changed the world.” This is true because Paul chose to write to the Romans in preparation for his visit there. My world view is, Things in Rome have and the rest of the world have not changed much, the same sins that were being committed by the Romans in Paul’s time are still going on/ being committed today. (Ecclesiastes 1:9) We could learn a lot from Paul and the book of Romans, about what not to do in today’s world. Rome was a completely overturned due to their immoral and sinful nature. Yet today, we still live in a society of complete moral decay and sin much like Rome of old and if we do not change the way we live, think, and our sinful ways we too will pay the price. I do not think people will change and society as a whole will not change from their sinful ways or for the better of this world or a life with God. I also believe each person’s individual needs will drive them to seek revelation, intervention, and salvation trying to remove their self from the rest of the world (those who are seeking a better life with God) will turn away from sin, because they understand that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to have salvation and escape the madness of the world.

The Natural World
According to my view of the natural world we live in a world full of constant sin, sexual depravity, murder and drugs. People are living more against the way God intended for us to and to many people do not believe in God or His word that they are not worried about the second coming of Christ. People are committing more immoralities todays then they did even in (Genesis 6:5). (Romans chapter 1:18-32) Rome during Paul’s time was full of every sin imaginable. There were then and are now issues with homosexuality; and the worship of creations instead of worshiping the creator God. Take the Pagans; Moralists who had their own beliefs that it would be possible for them to gain salvation and redemption by and of their own means and terms. I had a friend that did not think Jesus was the way to the Father, but instead if she did many good deeds that would be enough to enter into eternal life with God. According to (Romans 3:10) this is far from the truth. What is true however is that we live in a world that is still filled with sin but at an ever higher rate because of all the technology, such as the internet which provides an easy gateway for those who looking to indulge in any type of immoral behaviors. You see it all the time husbands and wives cheating on each other, unmarried people looking for dates with no intention of getting married. It is human nature to turn even those things that were intended to do the right thing with into a means of doing the wrong things. Rome in the past worshipped many Gods ( Idols) it was the Roman’s custom to put their Gods in the temple of every country they conquered, to gain control of the people in that country, Paul speaks of this in Romans chapter 1. He addressed this issue of the fault line, a crack in WORLDVIEW ESSAY ROMANS CHAPTERS 1-8

Roman society with the Church in Rome, in an attempt to help them learn of the true and only God. Human Identity
Paul speaks of the human identity of the Jews and the Gentiles, the saved and the unsaved. In (Romans 2:15), Paul states that, “the Gentiles didn’t have the law while, the Jews did”. Although there is a difference between knowing the law and not knowing the law,...
