ROMANS 1:18-25 NLT

“But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and the sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. And instead of worshipping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshipped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles. So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.”

They say that history repeats itself, and it’s very interesting to read how the Bible speaks on things that are still occurring in today’s society! We all know God, because we live in a world full of his creations, but sometimes we give praise to his creations instead of giving that directly to God. We create their own idols, and do the things that their hearts desire with no remorse or thought of its effect on God. It’s no wonder why our world is the way that it is, and it’s easy to see that we are the one’s responsible.
