So, I was looking up a cross reference in Romans 1 and found this verse:
18-God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.
And I was reminded of kamp. Last summer, one of our themes consisted of the girls side of kamp bringing back "raise the roof" while the guys side of kamp "attempted" to "suppress it". Needless to say, they failed and the roof was raised.
(Picture: Female staff with our "Raise the Roof" shirts)
God's anger. against ALL people who suppress the truth. by their wickedness. YIKES.....
But the verses don't end there (thank goodness). Paul goes on to say that these people know the truth. They have either heard it or they have seen it in God's creation. We can all see God's invisible qualities within nature and therefore, have no excuse for not knowing of him.
The people Paul is talking about in Romans 1:18 are those who know this truth, but those who turn away. Turn away to the world and worship people, money, or pleasure rather than giving God all the praise.....
Dont suppress the truth.....or the roof for that matter. Raise it and praise Him!
