Free Ebook- Imputation of Righteousness & Covenant Theology by Walter Chantry

(An Overview of Romans 5:12-21)

Paul’s great theme in Romans is righteousness, in particular the righteousness of God. “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes…for in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed,” (Romans 1:16, 17). The Christian gospel is about righteousness.

I. An Indictment Against Humanity

Paul began explaining the gospel by telling us that “the wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,” (Romans 1:18). His point was not that if the people of the Roman Empire did not repent, that God’s wrath would fall on them. His message was that the wrath of God was already active and evidently upon them. At a time still future when he wrote, God’s wrath would be seen as the Vandals battered down their gates and plundered their cities. But long before this terrifying, destructive blow, God’s wrath was to be seen in His allowing the empire to wallow in moral filth and debauchery. He permitted Romans to corrupt themselves and to follow every lustful desire of their hearts without restraint. This was the wrath of God in its early stages, already fallen as Paul’s letter was written.
