Romans describes the essence of what God desires of us. All of the basic questions are dealt with in the book of Romans. What must we do for salvation? What is righteousness by faith? What does God do to those people who rebelliously reject all of his efforts to win them to trust and love?
Why does Paul make such an abrupt change in Romans 9 and say that he hated Esau and loved Jacob? Did God harden Pharaoh’s heart? Does God make some like clay doomed for destruction, while others are destined for salvation?
Why is there so much emphasis throughout the Bible that we should not judge and condemn others? What’s so bad about judging and criticizing our neighbor?
