How a person becomes a reprobate!

Scripture tells the root cause of, the damnation of, the progression of depravity, and the end result of homosexuality:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness,and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness {contempt} because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 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 they are without excuse.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their foolish imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools; and changed the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man and to birds, and four-footed beasts and creeping things; Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, through the lusts of their own bodies between themselves, to dishonour the own bodies between themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature, more than The Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this cause, God gave them up to vile affections, for event 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 [improper, not fitting] ; and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet [due them].

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, [forsaken beyond redemption, foreordained to eternal damnation, rejected by God for eternity] to do those things which are not convenient;

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.

Who knowing the Judgement of God, that they which do such things are worthy of death,not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Romans chapter 1:18-32
