Romans 1:18 KJV
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
What does it mean to hold the truth in unrighteousness? Pondering on this for a while, I realised the bible had answered this question in the subsequent verses
God is particularly not happy with Christians who still wallow in unrighteousness. This is because God has revealed Himself to them so He expects them to manifest Himself in their lives.
In the process, such people fail to glorify God. Their actions negate that of the will of God in their lives and eventually, they are no longer thankful.
In fact, their end is nothing good to speak of. (See v26-32) We may see this as far from us, but the enemy can easily lure us into such a state should we let our guards down. Hold the truth in righteousness and keep up the faith, fanning into flames the gifts you’ve received.
Have a blessed day.
