Why was Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by God? It is likely not what you think. It actually has nothing to do with what you have likely been taught all of your life.
If you are a believer you should allow
the Bible to answer the question you. If you are not, you might still be
interested. The answer is in Ezekiel 16:49. It says "'Now this was the
sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed
and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy."
and Sisters, how do we get so mis-focused? I see so much political
rhetoric from people that claim Christ that dehumanizes the poor and the
aliens that makes me believe we have completely missed the mark.
we are to live the life with the focus that God wishes us to have we
will care for those less fortunate. Jesus would call these people "the
least of these" and add that if we do not care for them we will be
unrecognisable as His followers on Judgement day and asked to depart.
should be community focused. Our focus needs to be on helping people.
Not judging them. Our focus should be on saving/helping them not
labelling them (homeless, illegals, welfare recipients, etc) so that we
can hate them as a group. Hate is not a Christian quality. And if you
say they do not deserve our concern, consider whether you deserve the
grace you have been given.
And just to set the record straight,
the actual, Biblical definition of a Sodomite is one who is : "arrogant,
overfed and unconcerned...[for] the poor and needy". It has absolutely
nothing to do with sexual preference. I know many "straight" sodomites,
Sometimes it is just too clear why those that do not believe call us hypocrites....
