23 Again a message came to me from the LORD :
24 “Son of man, give the people of Israel this message: In the day of my indignation, you will be like a polluted land, a land without rain.
25 Your princes plot conspiracies just as lions stalk their prey. They devour innocent people, seizing treasures and extorting wealth. They make many widows in the land.
26 Your priests have violated my instructions and defiled my holy things. They make no distinction between what is holy and what is not. And they do not teach my people the difference between what is ceremonially clean and unclean. They disregard my Sabbath days so that I am dishonored among them.
27 Your leaders are like wolves who tear apart their victims. They actually destroy people’s lives for money!
28 And your prophets cover up for them by announcing false visions and making lying predictions. They say, ‘My message is from the Sovereign LORD,’ when the LORD hasn’t spoken a single word to them.
29 Even common people oppress the poor, rob the needy, and deprive foreigners of justice.

As with all the New Testament letters written by Paul the apostle, this epistle is titled according to its first recipients, in this case the Christians in Rome. Paul wrote : “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, the just shall live by faith.” The Greek noun translated “righteousness” is dikaiosune. It is closely related to the verb dikaioo, usually translated “justify.” This book is a long theological argument about how unrighteous sinners may receive right standing with God (are justified). Righteousness with God is given freely (imputed) to all those who have faith in Jesus Christ for salvation according to God’s eternal plan.

This epistle stands as Paul’s “theological self confession.Romans is greatest doctrinal presentation of salvation in the Bible, Romans touches on almost every element of a Christian worldview. Above all, in Romans God is supreme in all matters of salvation, which serves his glory and the good of his people.Salvation is a concept that includes past, present, and future.
