Romans 1:24 – Dishonoring their bodies

13-08-2020 - Posted by Andre Piet

Wherefore God gives them over, in the lusts of their hearts, to the uncleanness of dishonoring their bodies among themselves.

When the glory of the Creator-GOD is explained away, even the most exalted (sexuality) is reduced to vulgar entertainment. Because it has become dark in the heart of man, proper vision on the matters is lacking. And where there is no vision, only desires remain. Like in the animal world. However, a person is considered to be more; he has been given thinking ability so that he would glorify GOD.

In the last centuries GOD gradually disappeared from the minds of Western people. This was officially started during what is called ‘the Enlightenment’, but the name is actually illustrative of the darkening that set in… Without a view of the Creator, feelings (desires) become guiding in existence. ‘You have to do what you feel’, then becomes the motto of life. And: you are who you feel you are. Sexual identity is then no longer defined according to how GOD gave it to you at birth (male or female) but according to how you feel. Whoever thinks so reprehensibly (: 28) has no compass and cannot but dishonor the body. What a contrast to the one who does know GOD!
