Jan 6, 2017 by

by Casey B Hough, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission: In Romans 1:24-25, the apostle Paul wrote, “Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever!
