God's Wrath Revealed Against Sinful Humanity

21 inasmuch as when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful: but waxed full of vanities in their imaginations. And their foolish hearts were blinded. 22 When they counted themselves wise, they became fools 23 and turned the glory of the immortal God, unto the similitude of the image: of mortal man, and of birds, and four footed beasts and of serpents.
