With William Plumer in Romans, Evening

Romans 1:13
NAU – I am under obligation both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish.
KJV – Romans 1:14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

“Ministers and Christians are bound to do good to all classes of men, v. 14. They have no right to except any. Differences in nation, in origin, in politics, in social ideas, can never release us from the obligation to convey to men a knowledge of God’s greatest blessing to man – a pure gospel. Such is the deplorable condition of man by nature, that without the salvation of Christ he is for ever undone. All men need the gospel. It suits the wants of all. We are commanded to preach it to every creature. Some slight the poor. Some avoid the rich. Some neglect the ignorant. Some are afraid of the learned. Some are offended with splendor. Some are driven away by squalid wretchedness. But in all these cases we err.”
