Humanity’s Rejection of the Revelation of God in Nature

The Bible teaches . . . (Romans 1:18-23)
 Every person is being judged by God’s wrath
 Every person knows about God
 Every person turns away from God
 Every person is “without excuse”
 God is fair to judge every person with his wrath.

The divine reaction to human rejection: God “gives them over” (1:24-32)
 Vv. 21–24: People “exchange” the truth of God for idols  God “gives them over”
 Vv. 25–26a: People “exchange” the truth of God for a lie  God “gives them over”
 Vv. 26b–31: People “exchange” natural sexual practices for the unnatural  God “gives them over”
