The Romans Road

Today's Reading: Psalm 49-50 and Romans 1

We start Romans today! If someone has never read the Bible before then there's two places I send them: for an emphasis on relationships, turn to John. And for an emphasis on philosophy, turn to Romans. Romans is a systematic overview of Christianity.

The one-verse presentation uses Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." That one verse contains the entire story of the Bible.

Other popular verses included Romans 3:23 and 5:8. The 'Romans Road' way of evangelizing is so popular that parody band ApologetiX even made a song about it:
