In 2 Peter 2:6 the apostle declared: God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives. What was the sin of these ungodly people? Jude 7 says they pursued sexual immorality of an unnatural desire. There is natural and there is unnatural sexual desire. It is natural for a male and a female to desire each other. But a man lusting for a man, a woman lusting for a woman, an adult lusting for a child, people lusting for animals; it is all unnatural and none of it will ever propagate the race. It is twisted, perverted, corrupt and ungodly. That is why God calls it unnatural and no amount of dodging, rationalizing or expulcating will exonerate what God has condemned. This is Just-A-Minute

Last month The Chattanooga Times published an article by Rhonda Swann taking Christians to task for opposing same-sex marriage. In it there were numerous claims that simply aren’t so. For instance Swann claimed that the reason God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah was their failure to aid the poor. While Ezekiel certainly lays this at their doorstep, that was not the only thing wrong! Hear the Holy Spirit speak in the book of Jude verse 7: “just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire”. They had unnatural desires all right. When Lot offered his two virgin daughters, the men of Sodom refused them because they wanted the men inside! This is Just-A-Minute

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed Fire and brimstone…

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Fire and brimstone rained from heaven and the cities of the plain, so full of wickedness and perverseness, were utterly eradicated. Shall I charge God with injustice for this? God forbid! God did not make their choices for them. Does God delight in the punishment of depravity? God forbid! God seeks the salvation of all, but God has left the decision to each of us. “Therefore be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” Do not find fault with God, for God has no fault. The fault is mine and yours. We make the choices, we reject the counsel, we hear and refuse to believe, we cast aside the Lord and set our course to please ourselves and wonder why things go wrong.
