“Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever? Amen” (Romans 1:25).
GOD is the CREATOR and Man is the creature, along with birds, fourfooted animals and other creeping things which God also created are creatures (Genesis 1:24-26).
The word of God is NOT open to any private interpretation. “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Peter 1:19–21). “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” (Isaiah 28:10).
The Apostle Paul clearly explained, said:
“[NOW I WOULD NOT HAVE YOU IGNORANT], brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
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]:
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];
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Romans 1:13, 16, 20-24, 26-28, 32).
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven [AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN], who hold the [TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]” (Romans 1:18).
