    Hey STP, hope all's well with you.

    My point was that Paul is a addressing all as one, not a particular individual.

    In this, his words will often be about and or apply to all, as one.*

    In this, consider that a Pastor communicating the KJV's intended sense there, to his hearers, would do so, not in the KJV English he has just read to them, rather; in today's equivalent - "that none of you become," or "end up" "puffed up," for example.

    And its "you" is also the second person plural.

    *Paul often relates groups in categories of one.

    Was reading Romans this morning and now get the impression that ch. 6:12-23 is the main reason, or a big part of the reason, that Paul wrote.

    12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.
    13Neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
    14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace.
    Become Servants of Righteousness
    15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
    16Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
    17But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
    18Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.
    19I speak after the manner of men because of the weakness of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
    20For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness.
    21What fruit had you then in those things of which you are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
    22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    The Romans were saved (v. 17-18) but apparently were ignorant of who and what they now were in Christ (Rom 6:3, 16). As a result, Paul apparently learned of their weak, fleshly behavior and legalism (opening of ch. 2 and above in v. 19). They were serving sin because they did not realize that, in Christ, they were no longer the servants of sin, perhaps not unlike the Corinthians.

    That missing knowledge of their identity and position in Christ is the gift he sought to impart to them. The purpose was so that they, too, could be established in the faith to both their comfort and Paul's (Rom 1:11, 12). But that missing knowledge was some very deep water, and so had to have a lot of groundwork laid first. Paul takes up about the first half of his letter to do it.

    Thoughts?

    Not a single cluster of living fruit was, or ever will be, harvested from the tree of legality. Law can only produce “dead works,” from which we need to have conscience purged just as much as from “wicked works.”

    Romans 6 is based on the reality of Romans 1 thru 5, and comes in just off of what Paul concludes in chapter 5.

    Which is basically Paul's own OSAS assertion.

    Romans 6 then anticipates what some might say and or do with that. He began this way back at the beginning of Romans 3; where he relates his experience with those who would slander him as teaching one could live as one pleased.

    This is a common element within Paul's writings - he often anticipates odd ball, but serious questions and or assertions that he then addresses.

    This helps establish the Believer in how to do the same kind of thing simply by osmosis; simply through time in Romans; when it is properly approached.

    Again, a key aspect is that he very often anticipates various kinds of problems, assertions, and questions he then addresses.

    And often, when he is not addressing an individual, he can be found addressing a group as if he is addressing one individual. His letters are very one on one in this.

    Why?

    1 Cor. 14:37 is why.

    And yes, the Romans were saved.

    Let's cut the poop. MAD and all grace believers no longer under the law can still obey, even though it has no bearing on our salvation -
    1 Corinthians 15:1-2 KJV and 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV

    It's not difficult to obey the Ten Commandments and Jesus' commands.

    It's not difficult to obey the Ten Commandments and Jesus' commands.
    You sound upset...

    The Scripture cited seems to be almost an encryption of doctrine in this summary by Paul as he open this letter. And he describes Christ as the One:

    Rom 1:5
    Through Whom we have received
    Grace and apostleship
    Unto obedience of faith
    In all nations,
    Upon His Name.


    And I was simply trying to parse it...

    He speaks of Christ "through Whom we have received Grace"...
    And "through Whom we have received Apostleship"...

    And then "unto obedience of faith..."

    So IF Grace and Apostleship are given by Christ UNTO faith's obedience in ALL the Nations "upon His Name"... Does this mean that faith's obedience in all nations is for the sake of glorifying His Name? Is that what "upon His Name" means?

    And what is "Faith's obedience"? And why does it take Apostleship and Grace for all the nations to possess it? Why is it so important?

    Find a different high horse as this seems to be your theme - Obedience
    Does this mean that you don't want me to ask questions about what the words of Scripture actually mean?

    10 COMMANDMENTS
    they are not burdensome
    The "obedience of Faith" CANNOT be the 10 Commandments...
    We had them before Christ and His Apostles and Grace...
    They came with the Prophets...

    Abraham, I think, had "obedience of Faith"...
    God spoke and he obeyed without hesitation...

    Normally obedience means to obey...

    And to obey is to DO what is COMMANDED...

    Hard to confine obedience to mental assent (believing)...

    The Gospel is a COMMANDMENT, after all...
    Proclaiming the presence here and now of the Kingdom of Heaven...
    And commanding us to repent and be baptized into Christ...

    Anyway, consider that this about the Roman saints, from Romans 1:

    5. By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
    6. Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
    7. To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    8. First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

    Is not this, about how the Jew ended up losing his "natural branch" status (direct access), for his failure to access it by faith - Romans 2:

    17. Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,
    18. And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law;
    19. And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness,
    20. An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law.
    21. Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? Thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
    22. Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? Thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?
    23. Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?
    24. For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written.

    To hold otherwise is the result of words and or phrases not studied out as fully as they should have been, followed by building from them, more of the same misunderstanding.

    Study out throughly, words like "beloved, called, calling, separated unto, set apart, holy, sanctified (which is where the word saint comes from), sanctification, holy," just to name a few.

    This here "17. Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God," is the end of a long process of indictment found through Israel's long, rebellious history.

    And it is in the same sense as Ephesians 2: 11's negative "that which is called the circumcision in the flesh made by hands..."

    Because Ephesians 2 is Romans 1 thru 3 and 9 thru 11.

    The Jews boasting that Paul is referring to both in Romans 2 and in Ephesians 2, being...

    Isaiah 61:

    1. But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

    Romans 2:17's boasting is the issue of the Jew's awareness of what his nation had been chosen unto, even as he walked against it, in his conclusion that access is the same as possession.

    John 8:

    33. They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

    Catch that - even as they were under bondage to the Romans Empire and with that, said one more instance of Gentile Power laughing at (blasphemy of) the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Isaiah 52:5.

    John 8:

    34. Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
    35. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
    36. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    Notice - they're in, and yet out:

    37. I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
    38. I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
    39. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

    So which is it, are they Jews or not?

    40. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
    41. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
    42. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
    43. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
    44. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    The same list of offenses as Romans 2's indictment - against the Jew, not, the Roman saints at Rome.
    Good post!

    Paul was addressing the faithful in Rome, because as their Pastor, he was writing them a pastoral letter, because they were under the attack of Judaizers who wanted them to become Jews by Circumcision and obedience to the Levitical Law, thereby forsaking the Grace into which they were already entered in the Faith of Christ through Paul...

    This conflict was not resolved until the Council at Jerusalem where after much debate, the argument of Peter was received by all and proclaimed by the Head of the Jerusalem Church, Iakovos [James - the brother of our Lord], that the Gentiles did NOT have to be circumcised not adopt the Levitical Law...

    Paul's view prevailed...

    There were people (each with their own assemblies at Rome). Leaders who not only personally knew Paul, but his gospel, way before Paul wrote Romans - see, for example, Acts 18: 1-6, 11, 18, 26-28; Rom. 16:1-15, etc.

    In this, the Romans would have had copies of Paul's Epistles prior to his writing of Romans, some ten years after he wrote Galatians, some eight years after he wrote 1st and 2nd Thessalonians, and so on, 1 Co. 14:37; Col. 4:16, 1 Thess. 4:27, etc.

    There were also letters going back and forth between Paul and his leaders, 1 Cor. 7:1; 16:10, etc.

    Not to mention what Acts 18: 26 and Romans 16:3 together make obvious the Romans would also have known before Paul wrote them - "the way of God more perfectly" Acts 18:26, that Romans is merely a full detail of in written form, Acts 20:32, Rom. 1:11-12; 15: 15-16; 16: 25-26.

    Note the 2 Tim. 2:2 pattern in Acts 20:26-27 - the Apostle Paul clearly taught a pattern to his leaders they were then to "teach others also."

    This is too much information in Paul's "faithful men" at Rome for the Romans to have been in the dark about Paul's gospel.

    And this is not even laying out all there is about this...

    There were also letters going back and forth between Paul and his leaders, 1 Cor. 7:1; 16:10, etc.

    Not to mention what Acts 18: 26 and Romans 16:3 together make obvious the Romans would also have known before Paul wrote them - "the way of God more perfectly" Acts 18:26, that Romans is merely a full detail of in written form, Acts 20:32, Rom. 1:11-12; 15: 15-16; 16: 25-26.

    Note the 2 Tim. 2:2 pattern in Acts 20:26-27 - the Apostle Paul clearly taught a pattern to his leaders they were then to "teach others also."

    This is too much information in Paul's "faithful men" at Rome for the Romans to have been in the dark about Paul's gospel.

    And this is not even laying out all there is about this...
    If what you say is true about the Romans, then Paul had no reason to long to see them, to write the letter and to preach the gospel to them that they may be established! I'll stick with the KJB and Paul!

    Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

    Romans 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

    Romans 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

    Romans 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

    Romans 1:5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

    Romans 1:6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:

    Romans 1:7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Romans 1:8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

    Romans 1:9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;

    Romans 1:10 Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.

    Romans 1:11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;

    Romans 1:12 That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

    Romans 1:13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

    Romans 1:14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

    Romans 1:15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

    Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!

    What do you understand by "OBEDIENCE of FAITH" in this passage?
