Changing the Truth Series (Romans)
For ages, men have been trying to change the truth of God’s word. In
the first chapter of the book of Romans, Paul gives a brief description of how
and why men want to change the truth of God. The rest of the book sets forth
many doctrinal and practical truths about God and his people. These truths are
under attack today, and it is essential that we as a church understand and
defend the truth.
In this series of messages we will break down the book of Romans by the
truth that is established throughout.
Chapter 1 Truth of Creation or Natural Truth
Chapter 2-3 Truth about Sin and the Sinner
Chapter 4-8 Truth about Law and Grace
Chapter 9-11 Truth about Israel
Chapter 12- Truth about Christian Living

to admit it, but they know

2.Truth of Creature

i.Man has a natural need to worship
b.Not someone else’s fault(own heart) (vs. 24)
i.Man is responsible to God
c.Natural desires of Man
i.Man is made to desire a woman, anda woman to desire a man
ii.Homosexuality is an unnatural sin
3.Truth of Coming Judgment
a.These folks knew the coming judgement
b.God gives every man light (knowledge) of:
i.There is a God
ii.You have a Soul
iii.There is more to life than this earth
iv.Need to prepare for after life
Message 2 Truth about Sin and
the Sinner (Romans 2 & 3)
1.It’s Real (2:1-3)
2.It’s Range (3:9-20)
a.Sin affects everyone
a.Wages of sin is Death
4.It’s Remedy (3:24-26)
a.Jesus Christ alone can atone for sin
Message 3 Truth about Law and Grace
3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his
sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto
Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
7:7 What shall we say then? is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known
sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou
shalt not covet.
5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin
abounded, grace did much more abound:
verses contrast law and grace
The Law brings a curse while faith brings blessing. Vs. 10-11
The Law brings condemnation while faith brings conversion. Vs. 13-14, 22-24
The Law brings bondage while faith brings liberty. Vs. 12
1:8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
is an inside worker because sin is a inside worker
(law) is an external work that never makes its way inside
1.Justification (Rom. 4-5)
2.Reconsiliation (Rom. 5)
3.Sanctification (Rom. 6-7)
4.No Condemnation (Rom. 8)
works of Grace could not be achieved by the Law
Message 4 Truth about what God has Done,
Doing, and Going to Do with Israel
(More to come Later)
Message 5 Truth about Christian Living
individuals today want to focus on the:
Promises of God
am thankful that I have a home waiting on me in Heaven. I am glad that I will
live in a perfect mansion some day in the very presence of the Lord God.
However, right now, I am a pilgrim and a stranger living on foreign soil.
Prophecy of God
we often neglect the practical living and service of God that should take place
Notice the wording of verse one. Yielding
of our bodies to the Lord is our "reasonable service."
living is not an unreasonable request.
is not just a request, but it is Required.
14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
A living sacrifice means that we are to be on the altar wherever we are.
Regardless of the geographical surroundings, we are to remember that this body
and all it is belongs to God. There is never an instant in life when we are out
of His view or free to live as we please.
A living sacrifice means a constant, continuous sacrifice. This is not
something we do from time to time. But we are to offer this body up to the Lord
and never ask for it back again!
A living sacrifice means that the body sacrifices its own desires for those
of God. To be a living sacrifice will require that the body does not live
for the world, the flesh or the devil, but that everything the body does is
held to the guidelines of the Word of God.
A living sacrifice means that the body is devoted to the task of serving
God. This means that we are to lay down the ambitions and desires of the
body and commit ourselves to doing nothing but that which God bids us to do! We
are to be His vessels through which He can live and work in this world.
Roloff said: “If you were arresseted for being a Christian, would there be
enough evidence to convict you?”
We are to keep certain things Dwelling
in our mind:
Destructiveness of Pride (verse 3)
16:18 Pride Goeth Before Destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
21:4 An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.
16:5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though
hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
Decisive Position (verse 4)
4:11-13 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists;
and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work
of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in
the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect
man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
4:15 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which
every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of
every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
12:12-14 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of
that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit
are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we
be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body
is not one member, but many. (Foot, Ear, & Eye)
12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it
hath pleased him.
Divine Purpose (verses 5-8)
5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord
5:16 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the
we should Demonstrate in our live. (Attitudes and Actions)
Separation (verse 9)
6:14-17 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what
fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath
light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part
hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of
God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I
will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall
be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the
Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather
1:10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
1:15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their
29:24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing,
and bewrayeth it not.
15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
28:7 Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous
men shameth his father.
1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor
standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Cor. 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the
Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and
purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
1:16 Be ye holy; for I am holy.
5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
2:11-12 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live
soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of
the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the
flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the
things that ye would.
1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one
with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
