What was the sin of Sister Sodom?
My mother is going to a church who’s pastor keeps up on politics. He feels the need to tell his congregation all about the hot topics in politics. Mom was talking about gay marriage as it is a national news sensation at this point. She mentioned Sodom and Gomorrah and pastor’s sermon. I love my Mom, but she’s a hopeless follower, so while she was talking about the issue I didn’t for a second think that she actually searched things out. I took this time to ask her a basic question. What was the sin of Sodom? Well, she said, it was homosexual relations. And so I said, “The sin of the sister Sodom was pride, gluttony, laziness and not taking care of the needy.” My Mom just said that she didn’t really know, because that’s not what pastor went over. Of course not, I wouldn’t expect that pastor would go over something that doesn’t conform to his political agenda. Whatever it takes to propagandize. I’m not missing church at all.
Ezekial 16:49 “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.”
