God is evident- freed from penalty of sin
1) V 17-20 God revealed
The righteousness. Of God v17- we are being suppressed
His wrath against unholiness+ v18
God's nature seen in creation v19-20- his divine nature is made clear - it is obvious - the big bang needs a big banger! See Acts14:17 eg. October Surprise in NY when leaves were still on trees and the snow storm leads to a crisis - God designed things to have an order - I.e. Leaves fall before the snow flies - there is chaos
2) V 21-25 People dishonor God
Becoming- foolish. ( Call themselves experts who are actually fools). Eg. Stephen :Hawking - still says "heaven is a fairy story". Will be held accountable for misleading others v 21-22
Exchanging glory of God for creation - eg. the golden calf an image- peta - ppl are caring more for animals than ppl v23
Exchanging truth of God for a. Lie v24- what happens when ppl deny/ dishonor God
Discussion- reflecting on v17-25
How does God reveal himself?
Why does ones heart become darkened when they deny God?
Why do people exchange
God's glory and truth for corruptible creation?
Lesson - intentionally look at creation this week and see God is EVIDENT and draw closer to Him!
