-->''"For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."''

* HolierThanThou: Deconstructed in the beginning of Chapter 2, when, after listing several obvious sins in the previous chapter, Paul continues by pointing out that if you're inclined to judge those sinners, that shows you're just as guilty.

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Paul describes {{NayTheist}}s this way, since they know God exists but reject Him for idols as a pretext for immorality. "Professing to be wise, they became fools."

* JesusSaves: Basically the point of the whole epistle. The first several chapters explain why we need {{Jesus}} to save us (namely, [[HumansAreBastards we're all sinners]] and our [[HardWorkHardlyWorks good works can't make up for it]]). The rest explains several theological nuances of this fact, along with a few chapters about the implications for our lives once Jesus becomes our Savior.

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Paul deconstructs the idea that it's possible to earn your way into God's grace with good works rather than faith. Imperfect people can't keep the perfect Law, and anyway God's grace is a gift and gifts can't be earned.

* ViewersAreGeniuses: Scholars have observed that this is the only New Testament epistle that seems to be constructed specifically as a theological treatise, rather than a personal letter about specific concerns in the early church. Theological commentaries on it can run to multiple volumes. This is amusingly referenced in Literature/TheBible itself, when Peter remarks on Paul's letters in one of his own epistles: "His letters contain some things that are hard to understand..." ([[http://biblehub.com/2_peter/3-16.htm 2 Peter 3:16]]).
