Professing to be wise, they became fools 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. the lusts of their hearts to impuritybodies would be dishonored among them. 24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error 27 … and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. worthy of death 32 … that those who practice such things are worthy of death Sin affects all of man: (Romans 1: 16-32) -Depraved Minds (vs.28) Futile Speculations Fools -Foolish Hearts Darkness Lustful -Dishonored Bodies Sickness Death

The offer of salvation is available to all men. C.Whosoever believes changes position (death to life); receives the assurance of salvation 2.Redemption is about salvation of the soul and the restoration of the whole man: A.A clean heart, a renewed spirit.

And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians2:20 you have received the Spirit of adoption Acceptance: “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Security: “Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?” Romans 8:34-36 THINKING WITH THE MIND OF CHRIST (DEALING WITH CARNAL MOTIVATIONS)
