Invitation To Romans

Experience required: In Depth

Exploring how people have interpreted Romans through the ages is a good lens to view the history of Christianity itself. Compare what Paul writes in Romans to what theologians like Augustine, Luther and Calvin say in trying to understand Paul in their time. At the end of this study your group will have a more informed commitment to Paul’s radical vision of God’s relationship to both Christians and Jews and to their relationship to each other, thanks to the "love of God in Christ Jesus."

The weekly video segments first present text read aloud against a backdrop of a wide variety of church settings followed by a conversation between a church historian and a church theologian about the text. The second weekly video is led by story teller, Michael Williams, who shares snapshot views of how Romans has been read through history.

This study is meaty and extremely enjoyable for those students with some familiarity of Romans and with a strong biblical foundation to rely on.

    Abingdon and the UMC went to Pamela Eisenbaum, who is not a Christian, for the text in a foundational Christian course in its Disciple series. Eisenbaum uses the text to promote universalism, or "collective salvation," arguing that the faith of Christ, rather than the believer's faith in Christ, leads to salvation. This is more a reflection of Iliff School of Theology's (Eisenbaum's employer) socio-political worship of inclusion and diversity, than of what scripture actually declares. Eisenbaum refers to Paul's encounter with Christ himself on the road to Damascus as "some sort of mystical experience."The two scholars in the video component treat Pelagius as a legitimate alternative to Augustine, thereby giving legitimacy to Pelagian notions on original sin and free will which were rejected by the fathers, rejected by the reformers, and rejected by Wesley. One scoffs at the notion that infants could possibly be born into sin.This study guide reflects the current value set of the apostate United Methodist Church, a denomination which has explitly rejected "salvation of souls" as its Christian mission, having instead declared its mission to be "transformation of the world."
