Has God given our world over to homosexuality?

Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.  Romans 1:24-27
            Romans 1 says that there is a point when God stops fighting against our sinfulness and allows all the people to suffer all the sinful consequences.  When we abandon what’s right, God fights for what’s right, holding back the consequences, then eventually says, “You want it?  You can have it.”
            Now we see those consequences today.  As our world allows for sexual and gender fluidity, the consequences of confusion and chaos set in.  Suicide rates escalate as people lose footing.  Hate takes center stage and violence ensues, innocent people being killed in stores, schools and on the street corner. 
            When we realize what’s right in God’s eyes and pursue that, the consequences will slow down and we’ll have peace with God and each other once again.
