Thank you for your comment Julie, I was encouraged by you.

I always like reading what this site has to offer. I have always been tryin to learn more since my near death experience in 05′. WCWTN gives me a better understanding of what scriptures mean. I do believe that just because Jesus paid the price for our sins doesnt mean we are able to. People now a days dont really understand so they just blow it off and make the world worse. Thank You Pam.

Hi Chris, I am so happy you are enjoying the site. Stop by again anytime, we are blessed by your comment.

Jack May 19, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Nicely done my friend. The Roman Road has been traveled my many a witness and it is well traveled by saints, many of who are in heaven today. Outstanding as always my sister. Thank you.

Pamela Rose Williams June 28, 2012 at 9:06 pm

Thanks for the kind words Jack, so sorry I took so long to respond.

Thank you very much for this simple layout… this is something short, sweet and too the point. Thanks again.

An important “step” along the Roman Road is being omitted from many web sites. It’s Romans 10:9-10 – which is the Grand Climax and “how to” of the whole thing! It should be placed just before Romans 10:13. That is how we learned it in the “olden days” of 60 years ago. Thought you would like to know. 🙂

Many blessings in your continued labor for the LORD to win the lost.

Pamela, Thank You so much for putting the King James Version of the Romans Road to Salvation on the World wide web. I found my little red New Testament Bible that I insisted I just had to have when I was saved at the age of 10 years old. So now I’m carting it in my lunch box for work just hoping someone will ask me about it when they see me with it at work on my lunch. I’m very pleased that when I ask Siri she found YOU for my answer. Yes my plan is to be ready to share and to be ready to desciple if anyone needs me.

Thank You, Your Sister In Christ Rhonda Lynn Thomas

I wanted to take a minute to thank you for this article. I am enrolled in college and needed to research information about this. It was very helpful, and I appreciate your time and effort. You made a difference nd in turn I hope to do the same.
In Christ

Does Romans 6:1-7 have a step along the “road”?

Pamela Rose Williams July 7, 2016 at 9:23 am

Hello Ed, Romans 6:1-7 is not an appropriate passage when leading someone to Christ down the Romans Road. Victory over sin comes only AFTER they trust Christ as Savior (Eph 1:12-14; 4:30). So no, there is not a “step” on the Romans Road for it. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Howard Elwell July 23, 2018 at 6:40 pm

Why would we omit Romans 6:1-7? After all it tells us how we get INTO Christ Jesus. It is real simple – We are baptized INTO Christ Jesus deaths burial and resurrection. If we are going to use this book as authority let’s please do it in context and not do all kinds of gymnastics to make it fit the order we want it to be. I think God knows the order better than us.

Jack Wellman July 23, 2018 at 7:31 pm

Hello Mr. Elwell. The fact is to be baptized is to be identified with. We are not identified with water but with Christ. Pam uses the Bible as her final authority, having known her for years, so it is not gymnastics but good, biblical exegesis. The context of Romans 6:1-7 is not water baptism at all, but is about the death of our old self and raised with Christ in new life. We cannot be baptized into a Person but we can be indentified with Him and He does live in us, not us in Him.

Pamela Rose Williams July 24, 2018 at 1:10 pm

Hello Howard, Thank you for your comment. I wholeheartedly agree with my brother Jack Romans 6:1-7 is not appropriate to use as a passage when leading someone to Christ. It is not speaking of water baptism but rather about how we are “in Christ” through His death, burial and resurrection.

Since you mentioned context, let’s go there with the passage that you mentioned. I encourage you to study out the Romans 6:1-7 in the context of Romans chapter 5, chapter 4, chapter 3 as well as many other letters that Paul writes to the churches. Specifically, those words at the beginning of chapter 6 “What shall we say then?” should cause you to ask the question: “What shall we say then — about what?“. Before you even read verse 2 you need to consider that Paul is referring to something he mentioned earlier, specifically look at Romans 5:12-21 where he talks about our “union” with Christ. We were all made sinners by Adam and that sin was inherent on us — we are sinners because of that very first sin in the Garden (Romans 3:23). BUT by faith “in Christ” we are joined to Christ and now His righteousness is accounted to us (Romans 3:24-26). In other words because we are joined “in Christ” BY FAITH, all that belongs to Jesus becomes ours. To be “in Christ” means to become dead to our sin and become new in Him. He died for our sin, He was buried and rose from the dead to prove victory over that sin. When we believe this He becomes our Substitute and we are no longer bound by sin, but alive “in Christ”.

So then, studying out Romans 6:1-7 reveals that to use this in the “Romans Road” to salvation could confound the unbeliever and new believer. Such study is for later as they grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ. As I said in my opening sentences of the article “When I was a new Christian I heard about the Romans Road to Salvation and someone even quoted all the verses to me. The problem is that I did not yet understand the meaning behind the scriptures, so I found it to be a little confusing.” The point of my article was to offer an organized way to present the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to lead someone to salvation. It was not to discuss the deep things that come later as we mature and begin enjoying the meat of the Word. No gymnastics, just truth in love.

Thank you Sister, I am disabled so I don’t get to go out to the world. Thankfully the internet brings the world to me so I can reach the lost. I have been looking for a simple form of the Roman Road so that I can share it in an MMO I play. I have made a realm (Castle) in Cubic Castles game. It is appropriately called The Roman Road. I have a conveyor that moves you along to read signs as you pass by them. This simplified page is what I need due to my mental disability. My IGN is TheTimMan & also Philippians 4:13 which I live my life by.

Pamela Rose Williams July 7, 2016 at 9:14 am

Hello Timothy, I am so happy that you found this article to help you with your “Romans Road Signs” — What a great idea! The gospel is simple and we should never con-volute it so others cannot understand and receive it. I am reminded of how Paul said “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2 Cor 11:3. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Your words are very encouraging.

Pamela Rose Williams July 7, 2016 at 9:34 am

Hello Shawnn, Thank you for your words of encouragement!

Lucy August 1, 2019 at 11:50 am

Thank you so muchl. I am enlightened and love the simplicity and straight forward approach to be witness of our Lord.

rebecka hegener December 3, 2019 at 9:43 am

Thank God that I accepted Christ’s offer of salvation only five years ago. Now, God has called me to a Sunday school teacher, and teach a lesson on salvation to tell others. You have a beautiful testimony!

Jack Wellman December 3, 2019 at 1:37 pm

All glory to Him. What a Road that is!
