Redemptive Peace The church in Rome was split into differing groups and in their zeal to advocate for their viewpoints had gone over the line of gospel mission to controlling ambition.In trying to unify a congregation he'd never met, the Apostle Paul starts the first half of his letter reminding the believers of their redemption in Jesus, anticipating the unity for their life together.
