Sodom and America

In Genesis 13:13 it describes Sodom as: ‘Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.’  Then in Genesis 19 we read where every man in Sodom surrounded the house of Lot demanding that he bring out the two men that Lot took into his house.  The men of Sodom wanted to have sexual relations with the two strangers, but Lot protected the men and even offered up his two virgin daughters, but the men of Sodom did not want the daughters and continued to press in on Lot’s door.  Eventually, the two strangers, who were actually angels from God, caused all of the men to go blind.  Then the angels warned Lot to take his family and leave the city and not look back.  As Lot and his family fled to Zoar, the Lord rained down sulfur and fire destroying Sodom and Gomorrah and all of the wicked men therein.

This should be a powerful lesson and warning to America, but like the men of Sodom, it seems to be falling on more and more deaf ears.

Homosexuality, a sinful lifestyle that was punishable by death in Leviticus 20:13, is spreading across the land like a plague.  It has permeated television, movies, Broadway, literature, comics, public schools, universitiesmilitary, businesses, benefits and government.

Now in the latest US census report, there are now 650,000 gay couples in America.  Last month they reported the figure at 901,997 gay couples but have revised the figure because of what they called ‘coding errors.’  Yet, the figure is undoubtedly higher than the 650,000 as a number of gay couples are not yet willing to publicly admit their relationship for various reasons.  Of the 650,000 gay couples, 131,729 of them checked the ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ box for their partners.  Researchers believe that the actual figures of gay couples could be as much as 15% higher than the 650,000 being reported.

I can’t help but wonder how much longer it will be before God utterly destroys America as He did Sodom and Gomorrah for the wickedness of men and women in their abominable homosexual lifestyles.
