1:18-21 (18) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, (19) because what may be known of God is manifest in them, (20) For God has creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.

For example: When you finish college and find the job you’re looking for, then one of your co-worker asked you. “let me see your work” ? you tell them, No. How foolish to keep your knowledge to yourselves, how can you help anyone if you’re not even given them any ideas.
This is the same way when you are walking with God by building your relationship with him, he ask you. Son/Daughter go out and give the good news, on how God saved people from their sin. Then, you tell God I can’t; I just want the Holy Spirit for myself.
1:21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish heart were darkened.
God is saying, you knew me, but not of me. You have not glorify Him or even wasn’t thankful. So many people claimant Christ, but not even living Christ or doing of it they just like the name but don’t want to be a servant for God.
Definition of futile: having no result or effect: pointless or useless.
When someone has a futile mind, you
become useless to God with no evidence by having an unwise heart. Because when your mind becomes foolish, your heart becomes as well. The futile mind is a very dangerous place to be in, because it leads you to sin by having the unaware heart l. Our flash only wants to feed itself sin, because sin gives the flash unsatisfaction to grow on.
