 It Is Finished - The Only Way of Salvation


No Condemnation Now
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. (Romans 8:1-17 KJV)
The Epistle of Paul to the ROMANS

The Book of Romans was written by the Apostle Paul from the city of Corinth shortly after he wrote 2 Corinthians. Since it is known that the date of his arrival in Jerusalem on his third missionary journey was A.D. 58 or 59, and that he was preparing to leave for Jerusalem (Rom. 15:25, cf. Acts 20:16), Romans is believed to have been written in the spring of AD. 56.

Although it is commonly believed that Peter founded the church at Rome, there is very little evidence for this. In fact, the evidence does not even give us enough information to suggest who was responsible for leading the believers in Rome. It is true, however, that the dispersion of the Jews led to a multitude of synagogues being established in the midst of heathenism throughout the Roman Empire.
The apostles and many other converts to Christianity had ready access to these synagogues. During that period, the polytheistic religion of the Roman Empire was becoming increasingly unpopular, and there is a great deal of evidence that many became proselytes to Judaism or began to worship the one true God. These were the most receptive to the message of the gospel since they did not have the hostile predisposition of the Jews, yet were also convinced that polytheism was false.

Paul was writing to a predominantly gentile audience (Rom. 1:13). His main concerns in writing the Book of Romans were to educate the believers in the basic doctrines related to salvation (chaps. 1 -8) and to help them understand the unbelief of the Jews and how they benefited from it (chaps. 9-11). He also explained general principles of the Christian life that he wanted them to be aware of and put into practice (Rom. 12:1 -15:13).
