Thoughts of John

What is on my mind.

Bible Study on Romans: God Gave Them Over, Pt. 3: Romans 1:26-27

1. What inevitably follows idolatry? (1:24)

2.A. What is humanism?

B. What is some Biblical support for illustrating it is so dangerous and harmful?

3. A. What did God give men over to in these verses and what is the cause? (1:26-27)

B. What does “natural” mean? What, then, does “unnatural” mean?

C. Who is the author of what is “natural?” Of what is “unnatural?” How does this tie in with verses 21-25?

4. A. In Genesis 2:24 God instituted marriage. What are the covenantal terms of it from this verse?

B. Why are sexual sins “worse” than other sins? (1 Cor. 6:18-20)

C. Defend the following statement from the Bible: Every kind of sexual relationship and activity that deviates from God’s revealed intention (or, from what is “natural”) is by definition displeasing to Him and therefore under His judgment.

5 A. What does the Scripture say specifically about homosexuality? Genesis 19:1-13; Judges 19; Lev. 20:13; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Cor. 6:9-10;1 Timothy 1:8-11

B. Do these statements apply in our day? How?

6. A. Is homosexuality forgivable to God? (1 Cor 6:9-12)

B. What do these verses teach us about God?

C. What do they teach us about ourselves?

D. Compare and contrast a Christian response to a homosexual with a Christian response to other “types” of sinners. Does it apply beyond just homosexuality? Why is this even important today?

7. A. What other sin is homosexuality lumped together with in the Bible? Eph 5:3-5; 1 Cor 6: 9-10;1 Tim 1:10; Rev 21:8; Rev 22:15; 2 Cor 12:21; Gal 5:19; Col 3:5

B. Based on these verses, how does God’s and man’s ideas differ in regard to the gravity and significance of any sin?
