    THE KEY TO IT ALL ....
    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    Romans 1 is about all sinners gay or straight that our ways and thoughts are as he says as far from his as the earth is the heavens. God loves all his creation, but he hates the choices of our free will against anything he has designed it and things to be. Romans 1 is my self examination of myself and seeing my every second need for My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

    Some may not like my view, but I definitely believe the message in vs 24 thru 32 is very clear - being gay or lesbian goes against God's word. Sincere repentence and being born again is the answer.

    The book of Roman Chapter 1 is a holistic inspiration of God Almighty. It proves the truthfulness and existent of Our God and father in all things he created. For out of nothing he brought out what that exist to be. For there is Almighty God existent in all things he created, living and non living things. Even non living things such as rock are empirically alive un to God and not abstract.
