Today the pastor preached on Romans 1:1-16. I mainly caught two points:
1. The history of Rome is… Important? – He gave us several interesting, but as I saw it, mildly unrelated facts about Rome and it’s rulers, such as Nero. Who, by the way (I learned this from the pastor) was apparently a musician who hosted concerts that could go on for days… I think the whole purpose of this point was to lay the ground-work; to show us the conditions the Roman’s were under (a ruler who killed people at a whim and forced them to listen to his horrible music…).
2. We should spread the Gospel. – The majority of the sermon was taken up with facts about Rome’s rulers (mainly Nero). However, he did make sure to add this point, as it’s what Paul was doing.
You are Loved!
