Teaching on Romans Road


Romans Road or Road to Romans are the teaching based on the book of Romans. There are many verse within this that can be taken up as a path to be followed to get salvation. I specially like this for the simplicity, although Bible is a simple book to read and understand if we have faith on the words... especially the following verses which will be highlighted as part of the Road to Romans or Romans Road. 

Very simple yet powerful verses... Following 3 verses helps us summarize what the Book of Romans is trying to say to us about our life, what we are and the salvation.. how to get it.

The first step in the "Romans Road" or "Road to Romans"
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God... [Romans 3:23]

Devil is not a creator but can only pervert...


Satan is all famous for creating problems in our lives. The sickness, financial issues, world economy issues, accidents, natural calamities... all the credits goes to Satan. Done we think we are giving a lot of credit to someone who does not deserve. He is good in deception and this is one of his biggest deception to make us know that he is the creator of all wrong around us... The actual fact is not what we had been having in our mind till date. Satan cannot create anything.... instead all what he can do is "pervert" which means alter (something) from its original course, meaning, or state to a distortion or corruption of what was first intended.

Satan can and only can approach us in of the follow three ways... [1 John 2:16]

  1. Lust of the Flesh - Base for this is Flesh
  2. Lust of the Eyes - Base for this are our Eyes
  3. Pride of Life - Base for this is our life, nature and behavior

Death came to all men, because all sinned


Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned
[Romans 5:12]

Adam was the first man created by God the Father, mentioned in the first book of Bible (Genesis), and bible also says that Adam was the first man to sin. With sin coming to this world, death also came. Hence for everyone in this world who has sinned there is death. Now if we say that, we or anyone who has not sinned, does not have to face death... Then I would say that this is an incorrect statement, as all those born in this world have sinned. There is no human being here who had has born and not sinned. Bible also highlights this in Romans 3:23.. Know about teaching from Romans Road

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"

How all can Satan tempt us? Only 3 ways


For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one's own resources or in the stability of earthly things]--these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself].
[1 John 2:16]

Temptation had been there from the time this world was created till date. We see different forms of temptation even now also but the interesting part of all these temptation is that they all fall under any one of the only possible 3 categories. Its been proved in the Bible at different books that Satan can tempt us or anyone for that case, in one of the 3 possible categories. We are just given one from any of these 3 categories or a combination with a new wrapper, and we think that its a new situation which no one had ever faced.

Lets look at the 3 main category which devil has for us, and from where he pick and adds new wrapper and tempts us..
