Romans 1

Romans 1 of the Bible describes perfectly what is happening in America and elsewhere. This opening chapter is filled with prophetic statements and accurate description over 1,900 years ahead of it's time. Guinness World Records describes the Bible as non-fiction.

The Bible is measurably and historically the greatest book of all time; the most published, manuscripted and legacy-making book of all time, and is also the best written and organized book, with so many profound truths to put the works of man to shame. Yet many radical leftists and anti-christians hold the Bible in irrational (hate + fear) contempt.

I am reminded of the words of Yoda from Episode V (I use popular culture metaphors to meet people where they are, draw from the repository of common folk knowledge, and show everything is connected) and that quote is accurately descriptive: "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."

Everything that is in the Bible is true, though not everything that is true is in the Bible. God's Word and words are weighty, timeless, and they gain fulfillment over time, as perhaps an eternal sand time piece. This is how I mean by revelation small r. Christians should not expect new revelation outside/apart from (God speaks to us through His) Word, meditation on the Word (Joshua 1:8), and other believers.

The argument from Romans 1 is the basis of a piece that I have archived somewhere in my web surfing and hording of data points and evidence.

Another advantage of KJV that many casually dismiss is that it belongs 100% to the commons and public domain. I am talking about the faithfully accurate translation, earthly copy, legal entity that is KJV; the ultimate authorship, editor in chief rights, and copyright of the Word and Logos belongs to our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. Romans 16:24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
