Romans 1:27

Posted by Anthony Crumley

Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Verses 18-25 state that God made Himself known to all people, yet most still reject Him and exchange the truth of God for the lie of Satan.  Verse 26 states that there is a point where God turns people over to their sinful desires, no longer restraining them.  This is illustrated by the sin of homosexuality and that illustration carries over into this verse (see vs. 26).

In error, people stray down a path in life that leads them away from God.  As a result, they receive the penalty, payment, or wages they have earned and are due.  When God cursed mankind and creation because of sin, He built in negative consequences to sin, which are emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual.  These consequences are the penalty we are due when we sin against God and include things like guilt, unhappiness, sickness, and even death.
