With William Plumer in Romans, Day 4 – Evening

Romans 1:1
NAS – Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…
KJV – Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God…

“When ministers so present religious truth as to make it appear sad tiding to meek and penitent souls, they mightily distort and pervert it; for they are sent to preach the gospel, glad news, good tidings unto the meek, to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. We do as sadly err when we smite and wound those whom God would comfort, as when we comfort those whom the Lord condemns.” (Romans, 40)
