You may have read this a hundred times but please read it carefully once more:
18 - For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 - Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 - 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 that they are without excuse:
21 - Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 - Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 - And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 - Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 - Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 - For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 - 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, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
It is perfectly clear, in the Bible, that sodomy is a grievous sin against God and His creation. Romans, chapter one, explains in detail that God's Wrath is revealed from Heaven "against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness" (verse 18 ). "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened" (verse 21).
It is amazing that many of the very characteristics of the antichrist and his worshippers are given here in Romans, chapter one:
ungodliness and unrighteousness - man of sin (2 Thessalonians 2:3)
their foolish heart was darkened - understanding dark sentences (Daniel 8:23)
became vain in their imaginations - he shall exalt himself and magnify himself (Daniel 11:36,37)
into an image made like to corruptible man - they should make an image to the beast (Revelation 13:14,15)
Who changed the truth of God into a lie - Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? (1 John 2:22)
worshipped and served the creature - they worshipped the beast (Revelation 13:4,8 )
God gave them up unto vile affections - And in his estate shall stand up a vile person (Daniel 11:21)
During the Tribulation their will be only one world sanctioned religion - beast worship, the religion of antichrist and his false prophet.
You can see that this is the time and they had to release the sodomite (from the closet), to come to the forefront and take part in the war that antichrist wages against Christians and Jews.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
