|Romans 1:28-32 |
28 And since they did not want to retain God in their knowledge, God abandoned them to an impure mind, to do those things which are not proper;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossipers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, promise breakers, without natural affection, constant in enmity, unmerciful.
32 They, knowing the judgment of God and that those who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in those who do them.4
4 We read about fornication, adultery, murder, theft — taking pleasure in such acts. Our music, DVD's, TV programming, and movies — all celebrate evil. Our newspapers print the bad news; we eagerly read how others have suffered death, accidents, catastrophes, etc. It is our sick, depraved minds that find ungodliness entertaining and pleasurable.
