Bible: Romans 1:24-31

1:24 Therefore God gave them over 1  in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor 2  their bodies among themselves. 3  1:25 They 4  exchanged the truth of God for a lie 5  and worshiped and served the creation 6  rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

1:26 For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, 7  1:27 and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women 8  and were inflamed in their passions 9  for one another. Men 10  committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

1:28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God, 11  God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done. 12  1:29 They are filled 13  with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice. They are rife with 14  envy, murder, strife, deceit, hostility. They are gossips, 1:30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, contrivers of all sorts of evil, disobedient to parents, 1:31 senseless, covenant-breakers, 15  heartless, ruthless.
