Perversion

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 may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them... For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly
seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:.. Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened... Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,.. And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things... Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:.. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature
more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen... For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:.. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error
which was meet... And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; - Romans 1:18-28

That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;.. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;.. And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. - Ephesians 4:22-24

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. - 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. - I Peter 4:2-7
