In chapters 1-7 in the book of Romans, Paul begins to lay down the solid framework for understanding the broad scope of the gospel in his letter to the Romans. Paul, who was chosen to be an apostle to spread the Good News of God, begins his longest, most elaborate epistle by explaining the relationship between God and humanity. Paul's purpose for writing this epistle emerges when he discusses the basic concept that all humans are violators of holy law. In other words, Paul is telling the Romans that they are not being completely faithful to God and that something needs to be done about it. He then offers his solution which is based on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He states that "those who believe in Jesus Christ receive forgiveness for sin and gain new life in the Holy Spirit." Paul mentions that one not only needs to believe in Christ, but should also completely understand the gospel. I will examine the beginning of Paul's letter, which mainly looks at God's anger and judgment of sin, how He remains faithful, what Jesus did for humanity, and nonexistent boundaries of the law. .

Towards the beginning of his letter, Paul discusses God's anger at sin. He talks about the endless men and women who have let their minds enter a dark world of confusion; a world of sin. He tells of how when these people refused to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their evil minds and let them do things that should never be done. As a result, their lives became full of wickedness, greed, hate, murder, and envy. .

Paul moves on to discuss God's judgment of sin. He states that "there is going to come a day of judgment when God, the judge of all the world, will judge all people according to what they have done." He says that God will give eternal life to those who persist in doing what is good, and will pour out his anger and wrath on those who refuse to obey the truth and practice evil deeds.
