Romans: Science and History

  1. The existence and nature of God are self-evident; thus, unbelievers are "without excuse." 1:20

  2. The Religious Right often uses Romans 1:21-25 to condemn environmentalists. 1:21-25

  3. Paul claims that before Adam sinned death did not exist. But, of course, death didn't enter the world a few thousand years ago because of Adam's sin. Death has been a part of life since life first arose (on this planet, at least) a few billion years ago. 5:12

  4. "The whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now."
    Some Christians use this verse to show that we live in a sin cursed world. (But others disagree.) 8:22

  5. Paul says that everyone, even in his day, had the gospel preached to them. Even the Native Americans, Asians, Pacific Islanders? 10:18
