Bible: Romans 1:19-23

1:19 because what can be known about God is plain to them, 1  because God has made it plain to them. 1:20 For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people 2  are without excuse. 1:21 For although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts 3  were darkened. 1:22 Although they claimed 4  to be wise, they became fools 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings 5  or birds or four-footed animals 6  or reptiles.
