Therefore I say this, and witness in the Lord, that you no longer walk about as the Gentiles also walk about in the vanity of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance being in themselves, on account of the blindness of their heart; who being past feeling have given themselves up to debauchery, unto the working of all impurity with greediness.

And Paul standing in the midst of the Areopagus, said, Athenian men, I perceive that in all things you are very religious. For going through, and seeing your devotions, I also found an altar on which it was superscribed, To THE UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore I now preach unto you Him whom you are ignorantly worshiping.

neither is he worshiped by human hands, as if needing something, Himself having given life, and breath, and all things to all; and of (one) man he created every nation of men to dwell upon the whole face of the earth, having determined their predestinated times, and the boundaries of their habitation; that they should seek God, if perhaps indeed they might feel after him, and find him, though not being far from each one of you.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which is known of God is manifest in them; for God has revealed it to them: for the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are seen, being known by the things which are made, even His eternal power and divinity; so that they are without excuse: read more.
because, knowing God, they did not glorify Him as God, neither were they thankful; but they became vain in their reasonings, and their foolish heart was darkened. Saying that they were wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the invisible God into the similitude of the likeness of corruptible man, and of birds, and of quadrupeds, and of creeping things. Therefore God gave them up, in the lusts of their hearts, to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for evermore: amen. On account of this God gave them up to the lusts of dishonor: for indeed their women changed the natural use to that which is against nature: likewise also the men, having left the natural use of the woman, burned in their desire towards one another; men with men working out disgrace, and receiving the reward of their error among themselves which it behooved. And as they did not approve to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are inappropriate; being filled with all injustice, wickedness, vice, covetousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceitfulness, evil affection; whisperers, calumniators, haters of God, insulters, proud, arrogant, practitioners of evils, disobedient to parents, covenant-breakers, incontinent, without natural affections, unmerciful, who, knowing the rightfulness of God, that those who do such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but they even delight in those who are doing them.

Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, every one judging. For in whatsoever thou art judging another, thou art condemning thyself; for thou judging art doing the same things. For we know that the judgment of God according to truth is against those doing such things. But do you consider this, O man, judging those doing such things, and doing the same, that you shall escape the judgment of God? read more.
Do you look with contempt upon the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God is leading you to repentance? But according to thy hardness and thy impenitent heart, thou art treasuring up to thyself wrath against the day of wrath and of the revelation of the righteous judgment of God; who will give to each one according to his works: to those indeed who with patience of good work are seeking glory and honor and immortality, eternal life: but to those who are of self-seeking, and disobedient to the truth, but obedient to unrighteousness, there are indignation and wrath. Tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that is working out evil, both the Jew first, and the Greek; but glory and honor and peace to every one doing good; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For there is no respect of persons with God. For so many as sinned without law will also perish without law; and so many as sinned under the law shall be judged by the law; for the hearers of the law are not righteous with God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. For when the Gentiles, not having the law, may by nature do the things of the law, they, not having the law, are a law unto themselves: who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience witnessing, and their thoughts accusing or indeed excusing with one another,
