Wesley's Notes for Romans 1:24


1:24 Wherefore - One punishment of sin is from the very nature of it, as #Rom 1:27|; another, as here, is from vindictive justice. Uncleanness - Ungodliness and uncleanness are frequently joined, #1Thes 4:5 as are the knowledge of God and purity|. God gave them up - By withdrawing his restraining grace.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 1:24


Ro 1:24 Wherefore. Having chosen folly, God gave them up to the consequences of their folly, and there followed an awful moral degradation which is now described. Their false religion was no check upon their lusts. They engaged in the lowest and most disgusting lusts. Language cannot describe the pollution of the Gentile world, when Paul wrote, as revealed by the pagan writers of that period.

    In verse 25 they worshiped the creature over the Creator. No creation should take place over our relationship with God.

    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.
