The Full Departure From God: Romans 1:26-27
“26) For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27) and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.” Romans‬ ‭1:26-27‬
Paul now points out that as society continues to turn its back on God, He gives it over to degrading passions. Wide acceptance of an LGBQT value system is a measuring stick of how far society has departed from the truth of the Holy God of the Bible.
Historically, Paul points out this has happened many times in human history. Satan loves to blind people and turn them over to false gods of sex and pleasure. As human depravity embraces all forms of immoral sin, the gospel message becomes more crucial.
Sex can become addicting and twisted to the point of hating the God of the Gospel. But the love of God sent His Son to redeem lost people. The books of Romans and 1 and 2 Corinthians are testimony of the power of the Gospel to reach lost people. Both societies were fully LGBQT immersed and God sent the Apostle Paul with the life transforming message of the Gospel into both Greece and Rome.
