What Does Romans 10:11 Mean?
By David J. Stewart | January 2011
Romans 10:11, “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.”
I have heard some preachers over the radio butcher this Scripture, teaching heresy. I've heard numerous preachers teach that a person is not saved if they are ashamed of Jesus. That is simply not true my friend. That is not what Romans 10:11 means at all.
The Greek word for ashamed here is “kataischuno” and means “put to shame, disgrace.” God is saying that whosoever trusts upon the Lord will not be put to shame, i.e., he will not be disgraced.
Romans 10:11 is a quote from the Old Testament. Isaiah 28:16, “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth SHALL NOT MAKE HASTE.” If we simply cross-reference with Scripture, then we easily find the correct interpretation of Scriptures. The Bible is not so lengthy that it cannot be read through in a few weeks by the average person. Certainly if we read the Bible on a regular basis we are going to read Scriptures that remind us of other Scriptures we have read.
The New Testament quotes the Old Testament HUNDREDS of times. In such passages we already know that there is someplace in the Old Testament where we need to look if we want to compare wording to make sure we have the correct meaning of that Scripture. Such is the case in Romans 10:11, “For the scripture saith...” Romans 10:11 plainly tells us that it is a quote from the Old Testament; yet, lazy preachers fail to look at what the Old Testament says and end up teaching false doctrine.
Isaiah 28:16 plainly reveals what Romans 10:11 means. God is PROMISING that whosoever trusts upon the Lord for salvation will NOT be disgraced, will not be disappointed, will not be let down. JESUS NEVER FAILS!!!

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.” ―Elie Wiesel
I am appalled at the indifference amongst professed Christians today concerning the corrupting of God's Word. They just don't care which Bible is God's Word. I'm talking about thousands of shameful apostate religious colleges today, that are INDIFFERENT toward the hundreds of perverted English Bibles, all of which are the Devil's way of depriving people of the true and pure Word of God. Consequently, there are many false plans of salvations being taught in the churches today, mainly the heresy of manmade repentance, aka, Lordship Salvation. Here is a truthful quote from Pastor Jack Hyles...
“God has a special rebuke, again and again and again in the Bible, toward those people who keep their neutrality in the work of God!” —SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles, a quote from the great MP3 sermon, “Where Were You In The Battle?”
