Bible: Romans 1:24-32

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. 1:32 Although they fully know 16  God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, 17  they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them. 18
