    I urge people to read the word of God, particularly Romans 1:24 to 32. Paul reiterates the nature which God is expecting us to be by denying worldly nature.

    I like the book of Romans, we had this chapter in Sunday School the other Sunday ago, I notice the writer left out the 26 -29 verses. Its talking about how man has left his natural affection for a woman and has turn to man, men with men and women with women. the bible is right I don't care how many laws man make up and changed. We as Christian need to stand up for whats right.
