Peruse the words that Paul speaks to the church in Rome regarding the unrighteous behaviors and lifestyles of people.

Rom 1:28-32—People did not think it was important to have a true knowledge of God. So God left them and allowed them to have their own worthless thinking and to do things they should not do. They are filled with every kind of sin, evil, selfishness, and hatred. They are full of jealousy, murder, fighting, lying, and thinking the worst about each other. They gossip and say evil things about each other. They hate God. They are rude and conceited and brag about themselves. They invent ways of doing evil. They do not obey their parents.They are foolish, they do not keep their promises, and they show no kindness or mercy to others.They know God’s law says that those who live like this should die. But they themselves not only continue to do these evil things, they applaud others who do them. (NCV)

Considering the present behavior of the world, does this message ring true today? Do media and technological advances have a hand in promoting such behavior?

Notice how the passage says that those who act in such a manner know God’s law and know the consequence of disobeying His law; however, they continue to sin and support others doing wrong as well. Now look back at passage, specifically at the thoughts that are bolded and italicized. Share your thoughts!
