Reprobate Mind kjv@Romans:1:21-32 - RandyP

Series: The power of God unto salvation Romans:1


The reprobate mind.

Quoted resource: easton 'reprobate'

easton:


Reprobate @ that which is rejected on account of its own worthlessness kjv@Jeremiah:6:30; kjv@Hebrews:6:8; Gr. adokimos, "rejected"). This word is also used with reference to persons cast away or rejected because they have failed to make use of opportunities offered them ( kjv@1Corinthians:9:27; kjv@2Corinthians:13:5-7).

Cause:

kjv@Romans:1:21 @ 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.

kjv@Romans:1:22 @ Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

kjv@Romans:1:23 @ 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.


Effect:

kjv@Romans:1:24 @ Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

kjv@Romans:1:25 @ 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.

kjv@Romans:1:26 @ 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:

kjv@Romans:1:27 @ 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.

kjv@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;


Condition:

kjv@Romans:1:29 @ Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

kjv@Romans:1:30 @ Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

kjv@Romans:1:31 @ Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

kjv@Romans:1:32 @ Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
