The gospel of Christ

1FROM Paul, servant of Christ Jesus, called by God to be an apostle and set apart for the service of his gospel.

2This gospel God announced beforehand in sacred scriptures through his prophets.

3It is about his Son: on the human level he was a descendant of David, but on the level of the spirit -- the Holy Spirit -- he was proclaimed Son of God by an act of power that raised him from the dead: it is about Jesus Christ our Lord.

4(1:3)

5Through him I received the privilege of an apostolic commission to bring people of all nations to faith and obedience in his name,

6including you who have heard the call and belong to Jesus Christ.

7I send greetings to all of you in Rome, who are loved by God and called to be his people. Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

8Let me begin by thanking my God, through Jesus Christ, for you all, because the story of your faith is being told all over the world.

9God is my witness, to whom I offer the service of my spirit by preaching the gospel of his Son: God knows that I make mention of you in my prayers continually,

10and am always asking that by his will I may, somehow or other, at long last succeed in coming to visit you.

11For I long to see you; I want to bring you some spiritual gift to make you strong;

12or rather, I want us to be encouraged by one another's faith when I am with you, I by yours and you by mine.

13Brothers and sisters, I should like you to know that I have often planned to come, though so far without success, in the hope of achieving something among you, as I have in the rest of the gentile world.

14I have an obligation to Greek and non-Greek, to learned and simple;

15hence my eagerness to declare the gospel to you in Rome as well.

16For I am not ashamed of the gospel. It is the saving power of God for everyone who has faith -- the Jew first, but the Greek also --

17because in it the righteousness of God is seen at work, beginning in faith and ending in faith; as scripture says, “Whoever is justified through faith shall gain life.”

God's judgement on sin

18DIVINE retribution is to be seen at work, falling from heaven on all the impiety and wickedness of men and women who in their wickedness suppress the truth.

19For all that can be known of God lies plain before their eyes; indeed God himself has disclosed it to them.

20Ever since the world began his invisible attributes, that is to say his everlasting power and deity, have been visible to the eye of reason, in the things he has made. Their conduct, therefore, is indefensible;

21knowing God, they have refused to honour him as God, or to render him thanks. Hence all their thinking has ended in futility, and their misguided minds are plunged in darkness.

22They boast of their wisdom, but they have made fools of themselves,

23exchanging the glory of the immortal God for an image shaped like mortal man, even for images like birds, beasts, and reptiles.

24For this reason God has given them up to their own vile desires, and the consequent degradation of their bodies.

25They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and have offered reverence and worship to created things instead of to the Creator. Blessed is he for ever, Amen.

26As a result God has given them up to shameful passions. Among them women have exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural,

27and men too, giving up natural relations with women, burn with lust for one another; males behave indecently with males, and are paid in their own persons the fitting wage of such perversion.

28Thus, because they have not seen fit to acknowledge God, he has given them up to their own depraved way of thinking, and this leads them to break all rules of conduct.

29They are filled with every kind of wickedness, villainy, greed, and malice; they are one mass of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and malevolence; gossips

30and scandalmongers; and blasphemers, insolent, arrogant, and boastful; they invent new kinds of vice, they show no respect to parents,

31they are without sense or fidelity, without natural affection or pity.

32They know well enough the just decree of God, that those who behave like this deserve to die; yet they not only do these things themselves but approve such conduct in others.
