The sins of Sodom and Gomorrah was not some of the people engaging inhomosexuality but RAPE, inhospitality, hatred of strangers and making slavesof guests.
I put my faith and trust in not only the Wisdom of Solomon, the ProphetsIsaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Zephaniah but especially and specifically inChrist who said,
¶13 the sin of Sodom was a "bitter hatred of strangers"and "making slaves of guests who were benefactors."
9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant,we should have been as Sodom, [and] we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
10 ¶ Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; giveear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
14 I have see also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horriblething: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen alsothe hands of the evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness:they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride,fulness (sic) of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in herdaughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me:therefore I took them away as I saw good.
Rape, inhospitality, pride, more than enough idle time on their handsand enough to eat but they cared not for thed poor and needy. Does thisremind you of the 20th Century?
¶8 I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings (sic) ofthe children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnifiedthemselves against their border.
¶9 Therefore, as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel,Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah eventhe breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: theresidue of my people shall spoil them, ands the remnant of my people shallpossess them.
¶10 This shall they have for their pride, because they havereproached and magnified themselves against the people of the LORD of hosts.
¶11 The Lord will be terrible unto them: for he will famish allthe gods of the earth; and men shall worship him, every one from his place,even all the isles of the heathen.
¶5 These twelve Jesus sent forth and commanded them saying, Gonot into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enterye not:
¶6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
¶7 And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
¶8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast outdevils: freely ye have received, freely give.
¶9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
¶10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes,nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
¶11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire whoin it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
¶12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
¶13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace be upon it: butif it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
¶14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, whenye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
¶15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for theland of Sodom and Gomorrha (sic) in the day of judgment, then forthat city.
I WILL PUT MY FAITH AND TRUST IN THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON, THE PROPHETSISAIAH, JEREMIAH, EZEKIEL, ZEPHANIAH, AND IN CHRIST HIMSELF notin Satan and his minions the 20th Century Faith Merchants, the 20th CenturyAntichrists who teach for doctrine of God, the commandments of men!
Christ even attested that the story of Sodom and Gomorrah at that timewas and would be in our day be perverted and misunderstood for financialgain,
36 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy Godwith all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour(sic) as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Read Verse 40 again.
“ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAWS AND THE PROPHETS,” whichis to say that ALL THE LAWS and ALL THE PROPHETS since the beginningof time were given to man for the expressed purpose of teaching and gettingman to adhere to these two commandments only! All other verbiage is simplycommentary, some of which are the nothing more than commandments of menhe teaches for doctrines of God for some of Satan’s gold!
Again, “ON THESE TWO (2) -- not 10, 12 or 613 but 2 -- HANG(rest the purpose of) EVERY LAW AND EVERY PROPHET.” Or in otherwords, “If you have or hear other commandments or laws, they are the commandmentsof men, your Professional Faith Merchants, who teach for My doctrine, commandmentsof men!
The sad irony with Sodom and Gomorrah when viewed in its truecontext is people oppose, beat and murder those men and women who engagein or they think engage in homosexuality only because they are different,odd, strange, queer, effeminate, sissy and have the courage to reach outand grasp a freedom that is their right under the Constitution of the UnitedStates.
Lesbian and gay men are not allowed to assimilate into society. Theyare made the outsiders, foreigners, outcasts, psychotics and criminalsin their own society for having the courage to reach out and dare to bedifferent! They are disowned by their families, forcibly separated andkept distant from their children, fired from their jobs, evicted from theirapartments, slandered by their public officials and figures, beaten inthe streets and killed at random like vermin. All of which is done in thename of Christianity and Judeo-Christian morality. However, such oppressionis the very sin of which the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were guilty andfor which the cities and inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.Such behavior is exactly what the Bible strongly condemns repeatedly. Therefore,those who are intolerant and oppress those they perceive as homosexualsbecause of their misunderstanding of the "sins of Sodom and Gomorrah" arethemselves guilty of the very sin and crime for which Sodom and Gomorrahwere destroyed. More terrible will be their fate in the end!
