Augustine: unnatural desires

Wednesday, October 17, 2018
    Feast of Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch, Martyr, c.107
    Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
    —Romans 1:24 (NIV)
    Thou hast commanded, and so it is, that every inordinate affection should be its own punishment.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Confessions [397], Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1886, I.xii, p. 15 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 1:24; Matt. 6:31-33; Luke 12:29-31; John 15:19; Rom. 12:2; Eph. 4:17; Col. 3:2; 1 John 2:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I praise your justice and your mercy.
