Question For Today: Was Homosexuality The Only Reason Sodom Was Destroyed?
Reader, I agree with this article. Homosexuality was not the only reason Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God. So why do so many Christians push that false narrative as truth? Because of what has been incorrectly and incompletely taught about Sodom and Gomorrah, people think that God is going to all of a sudden now "judge America" because of gay marriage and homosexuality. Well, there isn't any evidence in scripture supporting that. And God by now has at least a thousand reasons to "judge America" that are far worse that homosexuals getting married.
There’s no doubt the story of Sodom has created a cultural rippling effect throughout history. Many churches today believe homosexuality is a distinct and wicked sin, above others, worthy of its own level of punishment and damnation. In this worldview, it’s easy to peg our downfall as a “Christian” country on the sins of homosexuals. But, are they really getting Sodom straight? And are we? Yes, the Bible says there were homosexuals in Sodom. Yes, they were engaged in sexual immorality. And, yes, this was detestable to God, but it’s only part of the story.
