I feel more and more like I’m living in the land at the end of Romans, Chapter 1 ...
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts
to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie
and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator
who is blessed for ever! Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions.
Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women
and were consumed with passion for one another
men committing shameless acts with men
and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God
God gave them up
to a base mind and to improper conduct.
They were filled with all manner of wickedness,
evil, covetousness, malice.
Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity,
they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty,
boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
Though they know Gods decree
that those who do such things deserve to die
they not only do them but approve those who practice them.
The Word of the Lord.
