Sinners Discarded From the Hands of an Angry God
What is the result when God abandons sinners? They seek pleasure in things just like themselves, which will always be insufficient.

Main point summary
The wrathful God's response to sinners who seek to replace their worship of Him for impure and dishonourable things is to allow them to remain in their state of sinfulness, doing unnatural and ungodly things, whereby they will receive [bound by the law] what they deserve.
For this reason w God gave them up to x dishonorable passions.
BECAUSE man [and woman] have traded their knowledge and affections for God for things he created, and have failed to acknowledge Him as God, God gives them up to be ruled by these things (unnatural/ungodly things)
For their women exchanged natural relations
IN OTHER WORDS, women worshiped themselves and became infatuated with themselves, seeking to please what is like them
for those that are contrary to nature;
RESULTING in doing things that they are not supposed to be doing [in accordance with God's design]
and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women
SIMILARLY, men worship themselves and abandoned women for other men
and were consumed with passion for one another,
RESULTING in unnatural and ungodly relations amongst themselves
y men committing shameless acts with men
IN OTHER WORDS, men committed all manner of evil with and against other men
and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
THE RESULT of this perversion is punishment (not blessing) [which can include] godlessness and self-idolization (which is insufficient and left wanting [taken from the KJV])
