* EgocentricallyReligious: Romans 11:17-22 are written as a warning to the Gentile believers, that although they as a "wild olive branch" are grafted into the cultivated olive tree that the Jews, the "natural olive branches", were broken off from, that they should not boast against the branches, because it is not them that support the root, but the root that supports them, and that they should not be high-minded but fear, because if God didn't spare the natural branches, He may not spare the Gentile believers either.

* FromBadToWorse: Romans 1:28-32 is interpreted by certain Christians as being this to those that knew God, but didn't glorify him as God nor were thankful, but became vain in their reasonings and their foolish heart became darkened: that first He gives them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies among themselves. Then next He gives them up to dishonorable passions, such as women trading natural passions for unnatural ones and men leaving "the natural use of the woman" to work what is shameful among themselves. And then, since they don't think it's important to retain any knowledge of God, He gives them over to "a reprobate mind" to do things that are not fitting.



* SerialEscalation: Romans 1:28-32 is interpreted by certain Christians as being this to those that knew God, but didn't glorify him as God nor were thankful, but became vain in their reasonings and their foolish heart became darkened: that first He gives them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies among themselves.

* 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]]).

* SinisterMinister: In the final chapter of the book, Paul warns the Romans about to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that they have been taught, and to avoid them. "For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive." (Romans 16:18)

One of the seven Pauline epistles which latter-day scholars believe were actually written by Paul the Apostle. The other five are First Thessalonians, Galatians, Phillipians, Philemon, and [[Literature/BookOfCorinthians First and Second Corinthians]]. Scholarship is divided on two more Pauline epistles, Colossians and Second Thessalonians, with the other four epistles bearing Paul's name--Ephesians, First Timothy, Second Timothy, and Titus--generally regarded as not being actually written by Paul.

* {{Hypocrite}}: The Jews After ListingTheFormsOfDegenerates in Chapter 1, Chapter 2 promptly turns the second book in which Paul calls tables on any readers who are inclined to be judgmental toward those sinners, calling them out on it.as hypocrites since we're ''all'' sinners.
