But to contemplate the long litany of ills and evils that end the chapter is to understand that something – somehow – went terribly awry. At least twenty-two transgressions tell the sordid tale of these individuals whom Paul assures us were, without understanding (Romans 1:31).
One needn’t look long to discover the deception – the device of the devil – that turned people of promise into a heap of shipwrecked souls. When they knew God, they glorified Him not as God (Romans 1:21). He had a place – but not preeminence in their lives. They didn’t have God … in the God spot!
The mission of Apostolic Man – the Men’s Ministry of the United Pentecostal Church, International – is to aid the effort of challenging men to, seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Scores of conferences and retreats for men, sponsored or endorsed by United Pentecostal Churches, are striving to motivate and mobilize believing brethren into meaningful ministry in their local churches.
Because we believe they can make a discernable difference in their homes, churches, communities, and ultimately the world, we’re working to build a fraternity of Apostolic men across North America, and around the world, who will get God in the God spot – put their hands in the harvest – and effectively lead their families in finding God’s highest purpose for us all.
