Christ - the passport to enter the kingdom
Dr. Roberto Miranda
Romans 1:16 says: "....for I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, because in the Gospel the righteousness of God is revealed by faith and by faith as it is written, but the just shall live by faith."
And then he continues to develop that idea from another perspective and says: “.... because the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all impiety and injustice of men who stop with injustice the truth For what is known of God is manifest to them, for God manifested it to them. For the invisible things of him, of God, his eternal power, his deity, have been made clearly visible since the creation of the world, being understood through the things made in such a way that they are without excuse. For having known God, they did not glorify him as God, nor gave him thanks, but were puffed up in their reasonings, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the image of corruptible man, birds, four-legged creatures, and reptiles, for which reason, that is, as a consequence of that attitude and posture, for which God also -this is God's reaction to that attitude- gave them over to filth in the lusts of their hearts, so that they dishonored their own bodies among themselves, since they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, honoring and worshiping creatures before the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen."
