Bible: Romans 1:20-23

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 1  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 2  were darkened. 1:22 Although they claimed 3  to be wise, they became fools 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings 4  or birds or four-footed animals 5  or reptiles.
