Romans 13-16: Judgment comes from within.
Verse 13: Our actions speak louder than words, and when we act as we understand, then we are considered just. Not just reading about it or talking about or even believing it really matters, but doing “it” is what makes us just (fair-minded, unbiased).
Verse 14-15: It says here that when the “Gentiles” [being interpreted as a Pagan, non-believer, or heathen] who do not read or have the “law” (law being the Christian Religion, Jewish Religion, rules set forth in the Bible) but still have it in their nature to DO the important things of the law, THEY THEMSELVES ARE the law for themselves. They do the “law” because it is in their heart and ...

Romans 2: 1-2, Is the judgment of God different than our judging abilities?
Romans 2:1 says that we are inexcusable when we judge another person. The word used here “another” (heteros), meaning another different than you are accustomed to, or someone different than you [think you are]. It says “wherein thou judgest another”, meaning by the method we use to judge another, by that same judgment method we look at ourselves. We all are guilty of faults, so when we see and judge others faults by our own judging ways, we also condemn ourselves by that same manner of thinking concerning “faults”.
Luke 6:37 says “Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not ...

Romans 1: 28-32: Do we know what God may be?
These verses say that if we do not keep “God” in our knowledge our mind becomes reprobate. This word “knowledge” means acknowledge or recognition. So not only is it an understanding of God but an acknowledgement of God. These verses do not tell us what God is, but it does tell us what can happen when we don’t keep “God” in our mind. Hebrews 12:29 says “… for our God is a consuming fire”, and 1John 4:8 says “…for God is love”. If the Bible is supposedly not contradictory, how can God be a consuming fire and love both? Well, let the love that God is, burn up and consume all those ...

Relaying what we have discussed to Romans 27-28.
The context has not changed and the male and the female counterparts being spoken of here are still within each person. The word “men” here is the Greek word “arren” meaning male. The Greek word “aner” is used more frequently when talking about a physical human man. This verse is talking about a “male” characteristic, not a human man. This pushes us to look deeper within the words to discover what the meaning truly is representing. It is something non-carnal and not-physical, but spiritual. Romans 27 goes on to say the male counterpart [as the female counterpart in previous verse] in error .........

Continuing on in Romans 1: the meaning beneath the words in verse 26
It says because of this, being our misunderstanding of the invisible [component of ourselves] discussed in the previous post, we surrender and are given to dishonorable afflictions of the mind. The verse says “vile affections” and these affections are afflictions of the mind. It goes on to say that the “woman did change...” But here is where we need to stop and look closely into the scriptures for the true meaning [spiritual not carnal interpretation] of this chapter, as it is still talking about what happens when we dishonor ourselves WITHIN ourselves. Continuing on from previous post. This context does not change and the words ............
