Before the 'good news' of Romans can make much sense, it is important to have some idea of the 'bad news' of the human situation. According to the Apostle Paul, God has revealed his existence and his character to the human race, and people are therefore inexcusable for failing to acknowledge God and worship him. According to the Apostle, instead of gratefully recognizing the truth of God, people exchange that truth for a more comfortable lie, engaging in a sustained denial of what is quite evidently the case. In a kind of poetic justice, God gives people exactly what they want, allowing them to become slaves and addicts to the very objects of their idolatrous passions.
