Pristine Grace

Rom 1:18-32, (LITV)
18  For God's wrath is revealed from Heaven on all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, holding the truth in unrighteousness,
19  because the thing known of God is clearly known within them, for God revealed it to them.
20  For the unseen things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things made, both His eternal power and Godhead, for them to be without excuse.
21  Because knowing God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful. But they became vain in their reasonings, and their undiscerning heart was darkened.
22  Professing to be wise, they became foolish
23  and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into a likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.
24  Because of this, God gave them up to impurity in the lusts of their hearts, their bodies to be dishonored among themselves,
25  who changed the truth of God into the lie, and worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26  Because of this, God gave them up to dishonorable passions, for even their females changed the natural use to that contrary to nature.
27  And likewise, the males also forsaking the natural use of the female burned in their lust toward one another, males with males working out shamefulness, and receiving back within themselves the reward which was fitting for their error.
28  And even as they did not think fit to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do the things not right,
29  having been filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, iniquity, covetousness, malice, being full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, evil habits, becoming whisperers,
30  slanderers, God-haters, insolent, proud, braggarts, devisers of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31  without discernment, covenant breakers, without natural affection, unforgiving, unmerciful,
32  who knowing the righteous order of God, that those practicing such things are worthy of death, not only do them, but also approve those practicing them.
