THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THE R O M A N S
24-Therefore GOD gave them up in the lusts their hearts to impurity,to the dishonouring
25- of their bodies among themselves,because they exchanged the truth about GOD for a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator,who is blessed for ever ! Amen.
26- For this reason GOD gave them up to dishonourable passions.Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
27- and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another,men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
28- And since they did not see fit to acknowledge GOD, GOD gave them up to a base mind
29- and to improper conduct. They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, slanderers, haters of GOD, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to
31- parents,foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32- Though they know GOD s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practise them.
