28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
Did not like — forgetting God is a deliberate action, a self-willed choice. Man refused to remember God, so God rejects man as if he failed a test.
God gave man over to what man wanted.
Reprobate = unapproving, undiscerning
To do those things — restraining influences are removed
Not convenient = not fit, not of benefit to man’s nature as God’s creations
Psalm 14:1-3 — The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
