Growing up in a Christian household God has been very gracious to me and I am extremely thankful for that. I am going to discuss how Romans 1-8 has shaped my biblical worldview in the aspects of the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and culture.
The natural world has two different aspects during the first eight verses of Romans. They are the human and spiritual worlds. We, the human aspect, are on one end of the spectrum where our sin equals death and ultimately our redemption through God. On the other side of the spectrum is GOD and his perfect son Jesus Christ.

One is a gay male the other is a married lesbian I believe that they need the love of God the same way that I need the love of God. Christ didn 't come back for the Christians that shun these type of people; he came back for the sick, the imprisoned, and the sinners. Paul was the biggest sinner by sending Gods people to their deaths and Jesus still came to him on the road to Damascus and changed his life. If Paul can be saved then who can
