Could this describe our culture today? Could this describe some of the people or groups we know today? What do you think really happened to these folks?
“. . .they were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things . . .”
These were words God spoke describing Sodom right before He destroyed her. Here is the Scripture:
“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. They were haughty and did detestable things before Me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.” – (Ezekiel 16:49-50)
I’m not a fire-and-brimstone kind of blogger guy. Nor do I write doom and gloomy posts. I’m not suggesting we’re on the edge of world anarchy (although it often sounds that way). And we are not to compare our sin with others.
But, could what happened to Sodom happen to us? Truth is we don’t know. Would we be ready if it did? Could we escape unscathed?
