This essay has shed more light to my understanding not only of Paul's letter to the Romans but more importantly to my understanding of the dynamics of Christian missions in what has been generally, and oftentimes wrongly, considered 21st century highly secularistic world that we live in.  Prof. Johnson is right.  We oftentimes overlook the basic foundation general revelation has already laid in creation and in human consciousness in our missionary and evangelistic efforts that we fail to link it with God's special revelation in the gospel.
