Paul is focused on proving that idolatry is wrong and the people should worship God. The people Paul is talking about in Romans 1 had knowledge of God but rejected God in spite of their knowledge of Him. The link between v. 26 and v. 27 is "likewise also the men." The men were doing something like the women were doing. Whatever they were doing is linked to rejecting the true God and engaging in idolatry.<quoted text>
We should use Romans Chapter 1, for it condemns homosexuality 100%. If you do not believe in Apostle Paul's Epistles like some other people on this forum don't, then God help you for in Galatians Chapter 1 verses 11-12 and I quote: "But I certify you brethern, that the Gospel which was preached of me is not after man, neither was I taught it, but by the Revelation of Jesus Christ." So, Paul received these Epistles from Christ and whatever he says, it is GOSPEL TRUTH. AMEN & AMEN
The most common sense understanding of Romans 1 is that Paul is describing shrine prostitution, cult prostitution, people who use sex to worship the fertility goddesses of ancient Rome.
I think what is a sin is those that have a statue of the virgin Mary around their necks and hanging on their car mirrors. That's what Paul was talking about. Do you go on Catholic threads and tell them they will go to hell for that?
