Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods.
remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.
