Luke 17:28-29 “Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.”
What were the deadly sins of Sodom and Gomorrah that cause God to annihilate them?
Gen 19:4-6 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.”
The people of Sodom were sodomites or homosexuals. Sodomy is abomination to the Lord and a sin that leads to death. It was an unpardonable sin in the OT.
Lev 20:13 ‘If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.’
Today, the West who were former Christian nations have approved sodomy and anyone who does not accept sodomy is against human rights and will be charged. These two decades, gay parades worldwide publicly display their debased and shameful lust. Since the last decade, we even have gay and lesbian bishops, pastors and leaders publicly boasting of their depraved homosexuality. We are now living in a legalized gay community with same sex marriage just as in the days of Lot. God will destroy the West just like Sodom.
Why single out Sodomy
Rom 1:24-26 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason, God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise, also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
God purposely ensure that we can recognized all these depraved, wicked liars who suppress truth by making them to commit debased sodomy.
Rom 1:28-31 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,..
Because they are sodomites, they are always filled with sexual immorality, deceit, inventors of evil things, unmerciful.
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
They go after strange flesh like sodomy, bestiality, incest, and that was the very reason why God wanted all the Canaanites human hybrids killed.
Lev 18:22-24 ‘You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you.
