The Roman Empire was a pagan society. The wealthy lived large, luxurious lives. The slaves and poor were downtrodden and turned to immorality and dishonesty. It was nearly impossible to live a moral life in the Roman society. Read Romans 1:18-32 and meditate on the verses a few minutes. Write three sentences discussing the characteristics of a world without Christ. Do you think your country has the same problems that Rome did? This question will be worth 5 points. It should contain 5 well-written sentences.

A world without Christ is truly chaotic. Without Him, there would be war over all of the earth. Everything morally wrong would bloom inside everyone. My country does have the same problem as Rome. We have gay and lesbian marriages that are legal, and lust is very much present in this society. Men and women are having sex before marriage, which is a disgrace. That doesn't mean all of us are going to hell. Those of us who repent form our ways and turn to God will be in Heaven with God forever.
