Paul calls on us to love everyone. (Romans 12:10) Therefore, this passage isn’t taking a shot at the LGBTQ community or couples living together. Paul remembers how he and others in power confused the complete fulfillment of God’s love for being one with another they didn’t love, feeling so empty that drugs and alcohol wouldn’t take away the pain. He remembers killing Christians, being senseless, faithless, heartless, and ruthless.
Therefore, God gave them (Paul and others in power) over to the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator, who’s forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them (Paul +) over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they didn’t think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what oughtn’t be done. They’ve become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They’re full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They’re gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey parents; they’re senseless, faithless, heartless, and ruthless. (Romans 1:24-31 contractions added).
Paul and his powerful friends didn’t want to retain knowledge of God. They worshiped money and power, not Him. When we negotiate life without God, He gives us over to the consequences of our mistakes. That is the wrath of God. He created us to live life in His presence, to have His power and love to better lives, our own and others.
