26 That is why God has given them up to passions of dishonor; for on the one hand their women actually changed the natural function of sex into that which is against nature; 27 and on the other hand their men likewise abandoned the natural use of women, and were ablaze with passion for one another; men with men practising shameless acts and receiving in their own person that recompense of their wrong-doing which necessarily followed.
Bible verses about "effeminate" | MNT
1 From Paul, a slave of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for a gospel of God, 2 which through his prophets he promised beforetime, in holy writings; 3 this gospel is concerning his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of David's posterity in respect of his bodily nature, 4 but was by his resurrection from the dead instated as Son of God, with power, in respect of his spirit of holiness. 5 It is through him, even Jesus Christ our Lord, that I received grace and apostleship to promote obedience to the faith among all the Gentiles, for his name's sake; 6 among whom you also are called to be Jesus Christ's. 7 To all that are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints. May God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, bless you, and give you peace. 8 First I thank my God, through Jesus Christ, for all of you, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout all the world. 9 God is my witness, to whom I render holy service in my spirit in the gospel of his Son, how unceasingly I am ever making mention of you in my prayers, 10 always entreating him that now at length, if such be his will, the way may be made clear for me to come to you. 11 For I am longing so to see you, in order to impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established; 12 that is, that I with you may be encouraged by you, each of us by the other's faith, yours and mine. 13 I want you to know, brothers, that many a time I have planned to come to you—though until now I have been hindered—so as to have some harvest-fruit among you also, even as I have among the rest of the Gentiles. 14 To Greeks and to barbarians, to the cultured and to the uncultured, I have a debt to discharge. 15 So much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome. 16 FOR I AM PROUD OF THE GOSPEL. IT IS GOD'S SAVING POWER FOR EVERY ONE WHO BELIEVES. FOR THE JEW FIRST, AND ALSO FOR THE GENTILE. 17 FOR IN IT IS BEING REVEALED A RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH PROCEEDS FROM GOD, FROM FAITH UNTO FAITH; AS IT IS WRITTEN. 18 For God's wrath is ever being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who smother the truth by their unrighteousness. 19 This is so because that which may be known of God is manifest among them; for God has made it manifest to them. 20 For ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, even his everlasting power and divinity, has been clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made. So they have no excuse. 21 For although they knew God, yet they did not glorify him as God, nor give him thanks; but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 While they professed to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the majesty of the imperishable God for an idol, graven in the likeness of perishable man, or of birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things. 24 So God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their own bodies; 25 because they exchanged the truth of God for an untruth, and worshiped and served the creature, rather than the Creator who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 That is why God has given them up to passions of dishonor; for on the one hand their women actually changed the natural function of sex into that which is against nature; 27 and on the other hand their men likewise abandoned the natural use of women, and were ablaze with passion for one another; men with men practising shameless acts and receiving in their own person that recompense of their wrong-doing which necessarily followed. 28 And just as they refused to continue to retain God in their knowledge, so did God cast them out to an outcast mind, to do those things which were indecent. 29 They were overflowing with every kind of iniquity, depravity, greed, and malice. They were full of envy, murder, quarreling, deceit, and malignity. 30 They became whisperers, back-biters, hated of God, insolent, haughty, boastful. They invented sins. They were disobedient to parents. 31 They were without sense, without faith, without natural affection, without mercy. 32 Though they knew well the ordinance of God, that those who practise such vices are worthy of death, they not only continue to do the same, but were even applauding those who practise vice.
4 Let marriage be held in honor by all, and the marriage bed be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers will God judge.
1 Dare any one of you who has a grievance against his neighbor go to law before heathen judges, instead of before the saints? 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be tried by you, are you unfit to try such trifling cases? 3 Do you not know that we are to try angels? How much more, then, the affairs of life. 4 Why then, if you have cases relating to earthly affairs which need to be decided, is it men who are absolutely nothing in the church whom you make your judges? 5 I say this to shame you. Is it so that there is not among you a single wise man, capable of deciding between a man and his brother? 6 Must brother go to law with brother, and that, too, before unbelievers? 7 Indeed, to say nothing more, the fact that you have lawsuits with one another is altogether a defect in you. Why not rather suffer injustice? Why not rather endure being cheated? 8 On the contrary, you yourselves are inflicting injustice and fraud, and that upon your brothers. 9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. None who are immoral, or idolaters, or adulterers, or catamites, or sodomites, 10 or thieves, or avaricious men, or drunkards, or foul-mouthed men, or extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you, but you have washed away your stains, you have been consecrated, you have been justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. 12 "All things are lawful for me"? Yes, but not all things are good for me. "All things are lawful for me"? Yes, but I will not let myself be enslaved by the power of any. 13 "Food is meant for the stomach, and the stomach for food"? Yes, but God will soon put an end both to the one and to the other. The body, however, exists not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body; 14 and the God who raised up our Lord will up-raise us also by his mighty power. 15 You know, do you not, that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them members of a harlot? God forbid! 16 Do you not know that he who joins himself to a harlot is one with her in body? (For God says, The two shall become one flesh.) 17 While a man who is united with the Lord is one with Him in spirit? 18 Flee from immorality. Every other sin that a man commits lies outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. 19 Do you not know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is within you, the Spirit whom you have from God? 20 You are not your own; for you have been bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your bodies.
10 for the immoral, for sexual perverts, for slave dealers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,
9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. None who are immoral, or idolaters, or adulterers, or catamites, or sodomites,
