Men Suppress the Truth
Updated: Mar 14
Men have tried to suppress the truth about God. Men have used alternate theories to try to explain God and His creation. Paul in Romans 1:20 indicates that God has plainly shown things about Him to everyone. Paul asserts that humans can know some things about God by looking at nature and what God has created.
Romans 1:20 (NIV)
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Paul is saying, what kind of power would it take to create the world and all that is in it. Our creator is also our Savior. According to Romans 1 verse 20 God has given men enough knowledge to know the basic nature of God from what we have seen from creation.
The final part of verse 20 is important. “People are without excuse.” It doesn’t matter what other theories they might have. God has given men enough knowledge to hold man accountable.
Hopefully, you have made the decision to choose Jesus.
