........But We Choose To Go Our Own Rebellious Way
People know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities — his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Professing to be wise, they became fools. ROMANS 1:18-22
The Greek word Paul uses in verse 22 translated "they became utter fools" is the verb from which we get our word "morons".
The Good News: There's A Way Back To God Via The Road of Repentance
God does not stop loving us even when we behave like rebellious children and go our own way. The Good News of the Gospel is that there is a way back to a real relationship with God, if we are serious about seeking him and are willing to end our rebellion against him.
