For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. - Romans 1:18–19 (ESV) You go to see the doctor. Over the course of the last few months you have been plagued with chronic stomach issues. Some days are better, but most end in pain and nausea. Alongside these symptoms, you have a pulsing headache most of the time. Your feet seem to go numb occasionally. As you describe your symptoms, the doctor nods. As you finish, he makes a few notes. Without looking up he says, 'Well, I think you should take some Pepto for your stomach. Tylenol is good for headaches, and I would get some 'Support Socks' that promote better blood flow. I hope you feel better!' With that he turns and heads out of the room. My guess is before you leave the parking lot you would be on the phone looking for a second opinion because he treated the symptoms, but he did nothing to get at the root of the problem. Unfortunately, when it comes to a proper theological diagnosis for what ails the human soul we tend to treat the symptoms. What we see and feel is what we go after. Without ever addressing the core issue. Paul is not satisfied with such a surface diagnosis. The next several chapters layout for us the depth of our problem.
