Epistle to the Romans

Epistle to the Romans Sex, Drugs and Violence Rating

Exactly how violent and steamy is this story?

PG

Romans is pretty vanilla. It's light on violence (Paul seems to be a bit of a pacifist, in fact) and drugs don't show up at all. There is one passage (1:24-28) where Paul talks about men being "consumed with passion" for other men. But that's about as scandalous as it gets up in Paul's house.
