Many Christians aren’t taught what God’s word really says, and many churches simply cover up certain facts because the topics are sensitive in todays society. The truth is homosexuality was rampant in the time of Sodom, and Gomorrah. Homosexuality was one of the major reasons God destroyed these cities. Let’s now prove what I said by investigating what God’s word says about this issue.
Let’s start with Genesis 19:1-8
1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
We see two angels took the appearance of human men and came to meet with Lot. The men of Sodom were so lust filled they couldn’t wait to get their hands on the visitors who just entered the town. The term (know them) is used here. Some would say that doesn’t indicate, or have anything to do with homosexuality, but when you read further down you see Lot’s daughters are offered up to these men instead, and his daughters had not yet (known) a man. His daughters were virgins! These men didn’t want anything to do with having sexual relations with Lot’s daughters or any other woman because they were homosexuals.
10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.
The men of Sodom were so evil, and lustful with their homosexual desire that the angels had to smote them with blindness. God will save righteous Lot, and his family but the cities are doomed.
24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;
25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
God finally destroys Sodom, and Gomorrah because of their wickedness. God’s wrath falls from heaven upon these cities that indulged in homosexual behavior.
I encourage you to read the entire chapter of Genesis 19 for yourself so you can get the entire picture. Anyone who tells you God approves of homosexuality only has to read this account of Sodom and Gomorrah, or many of the other examples in the New and Old Testaments.
