Main Idea: God is just in carrying out His wrath toward those who worship the created things rather that He being the created on the grounds of God revealing Himself through His creation. Insight: The problem in this verse stems from the idea that people turn from worshipping God who is most supreme in this universe to worshipping things that are less than that. Insight: Note the "passive wrath of God" in v. 24. In other words, God giving people up to their desires simply means that he allows you to chase after what you crave. The blame, however, falls upon the sinner in the same way the blame falls on one who dies for ignoring basic medical advice from a doctor. Cross reference Jeremiah 2:4-13 about the foolishness of idolatry. Cross reference Exodus 32 about the foolishness of idolatry and the excuses we make.

Romans 1:18-25
NT
esv
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,
who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.

For what can be known about God is plain to them,
because God has shown it to them.
ground

For his invisible attributes,
namely, his eternal power and divine nature,

have been clearly perceived,
ever since the creation of the world,
in the things that have been made.
actionmanner
So they are without excuse.
For although they knew God,
they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him,
but they became futile in their thinking,
and their foolish hearts were darkened.
actionresult
negativepositive
concessive
Claiming to be wise,
they became fools,
and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity,
to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
series
because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie
and worshiped and served the creature
rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
