"These men...exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator." —Romans 1:25

From the garden of Eden to the present day, man and woman have been captivated by God's good and beautiful creations. He created things to point to Himself (Rm 1:20; Wis 13:5). Many are unable to get past the beauty of creation to find God the Creator, and so they worship and serve the creature (Rm 1:25). In Western society, the human body is worshipped. "Images representing mortal man" and woman (Rm 1:23) are worshipped instead of God. Billboards, TV shows, movies, and fashion advertisements, among others, glorify the fairness of the human body (Wis 13:7). As a result, many are "distracted by what they see" (Wis 13:7) and forget God, Who created all human bodies.

In addition, God intended His creation to be used in good, natural, and specific ways. Divorcing any creation from its Creator leads to confusion and misuse. It is obvious to anyone familiar with very basic natural law and biology that man and woman are made for sexual union and reproduction. Yet by a determined resolve to eliminate God the Creator from His creation, many in the USA and other countries insist that homosexual acts are to be practiced and approved (Rm 1:32). If you are confused about this issue, read Romans 1:25-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 2357. As always, God will have the last word (Rm 2:2, 5ff). If you have any wrong attitudes toward God the Creator, repent now!

Prayer: Father, may I seek You and Your kingdom first (Mt 6:33). Allow me to see everything as it relates to Your plan.
Promise: "I am not ashamed of the Gospel. It is the power of God leading everyone who believes in it to salvation." —Rm 1:16
Praise: Amanda repented of giving in to temptation and turned to the Living God to be her Rock.
