Biblical World View
Illya Tsvyetkov
NT

Paul wrote a letter to the church in Rome during the close his third missionary journey. The letter was written to teach the great truths of the gospel to believers who have never received apostolic instruction. The letter provides a great theological foundation for the believer because it addresses some of humanities greatest topics such as the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and civilization.
Romans one through eight shows a great amount of parallel and reference to the first three chapters of Genesis concerning the natural world. God spoke creation into existence (Genesis 1) and by doing so He made Himself known through His ...view middle of the document...

Every human is born a sinner but it was not until the giving of the law that sin came alive for through the law came the knowledge of sin. The law provides humanity with a divine standard which makes sin evident in the human heart and nature. Though the law is good, “it was sin, producing death in me through what is good in order that sin might be shown as sin, and through the commandment might become sinful beyond measure” (Romans 7:13). No one seeks after God and all have sinned and fall short of His glory, despite their human efforts. The law came to show the bankrupt spiritual state of humanity. Because the law shows the unrighteousness of man and the inability to keep it and realize that this is something that cannot be fixed in our own human efforts. Jesus is the son of God, God incarnate, who is referred to as the second Adam. And although “as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men” (Romans 5:18). Mankind is weak and “while we were still hopeless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6). Human Identity is found in Christ alone and by grace through faith alone can mankind be redeemed, justified, and glorified in Jesus (Romans 8:30).
Mankind was created to be in relationship with one another as well as God. Because sin comes naturally to the unregenerate, relationships tend to be tainted. Human relationships start by two people coming together upon a common idea or goal and if “those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh” (Romans 8:5) then those ideas or goals usually end up being flesh centered. Human relationships at large are broken and divided. Mankind has rejected God and therefore God has turned them over to their lusts and “they were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full or envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventers of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless” (Romans 1:29-32). Because sin has entered into the world, people live and do what is right in their own eyes.
The culture is a direct reflection of human relationships. As humanity turned from God their cultural norms were wicked. As they turned from God to worship of idols made by human hands,...
