Summary: God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness


Claiming to be wise, they became fools, ~ Romans 1:22

Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
~ Romans 1:22


We need a reality check. There’s no doubt that the world has infiltrated the church of Jesus Christ in a pretty subtle way. In order for us to make any kind of impact on our society, we must first keep our own ranks pure and, second, we must be confrontational. We must come out of our closets and begin to speak the truth and say what needs to be said.

It has made me realize we cannot be smug and we cannot simply play church. This is not a game we can play. We can’t have this conversation without realizing we’re at war. 

The history of humanity can be described as decadence.  The history of humanity is one of decline. Man’s society has been declining since Adam’s fall.  It is true that man never ascended; he has descended gradually since the Fall.  You see, man was created in the image of God, and when he sinned and marred that image, the process of decline began, and man sinks lower and lower until, eventually, he will fall into the debauchery which is described in the Book of Revelation as the time of the tribulation, and Christ Himself will come to put an end to everything at that time.


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. 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. 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. 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, 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. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. ~ Romans 1:18-32


Check out this article by Will Callery – it’s an eye-opener:

This Letter From Over Yonder is addressed to those who call themselves by His Name but think that to “get by”, they must dabble in the “ways of the world” and squander Time in a piddling fashion as if there was plenty of it to spare. This “Letter” is to the Fencerider, the Backslider, the Sinner, & the Saint, whether they be Pastors, Bishops, Elders, Deacons, Tycoons, a Heathern, a Harlot, a lowly Orphan, or one of the many others of no “Great Standing”, from the Disheveled to the Well-Groomed: “There is a way that seems so right in the eyes of men, but the end thereof is dishevelment, total ruin, and death.” {Proverbs 16:25 wcv} – “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the TRUTH is not in us.” {1 John 1:8}  – The Remedy?  “Wait upon the Lord…” {Psalms 37:9, Isaiah 40:31}


Beware of the enticing spirit of Compromise: As long as I am in this body, I will forever endeavor to put myself and those of us who are Born Again of the Spirit in remembrance of our First Love.  Our First Love: The One others can not yet see, yet He is the One Who sees us!
