WHY DID GOD DESTROY SODOM AND GOMORRAH?

According to the Bible, God destroyed SODOM AND GOMORRAH because the inhabitants of those ancient cities violated God’s Laws, and Basic Ethical Rules.
Politicians, around the world, have introduced LAWS that make it easy for depraved people to emulate the unethical behavior of the SODOMITES and GOMORRAHITES, without breaking the LAWS of the land. As a result, innocent children are raised by parents who are not fit to raise animals.
Before long, the whole world will be violating GOD’S LAWS and BASIC ETHICAL RULES, thus provoking the OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE to take DRASTIC ACTION to remedy the deplorable situation.
Some say that the necessary drastic action might be the predicted BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON, others say that the end will come with a THIRD WORLD WAR.
What are your thoughts on this subject?
Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards,
John Romer

God made everything and all of us and we are obligated to obey His laws sent his son Jesus Christ to die on the cross . We are all the sheep of His pasture. The wages of sin is death. Jesus paid the penalty for us by dying for our sins IF be repent and worship Him. There is no greater gift than that!

Destroyed because of the evil happening. God so dislikes anyone going against his laws and will not tolerate it. Can anyone see where we are headed.

Not to argue or disagree in principle, but if that is THE reason why doesn't he destroy places well known to be modern "sin-cities"? Why was the 3rd reich allowed to nearly eliminate the Jews? What about ISIS?

To be honest I don't think God punishes anyone here on earth. Everyone will answer for sins at heavens gate. Did God really do the destroying? In the Bible much is left to interpretation. If the original post was because of the Orlando shootings, lets not judge.

John,
You are right on!
God never does anything wrong. What ever He does we must look for His reason for doing it. A little common sense would tell us that this type of corruption would soon spread over and corrupt the entire human race.

Saddam was tried for 146 murders and hung. If he had of been hanged for the first one, there would possible be 145 still alive. Taking one life to saved 145 lives is very just and righteous.

There is no doubt that America is headed toward the same destruction. It is rather difficult to know how, but God does, His judgment will be righteous and just.

Re 16:7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

Because it was time. Not only were Sodom & Gomorrah destroyed, there has never since been any civilization established on their sites. The entire areas of Bab edh-Drha and Numeira ( modern Hebrew names for the area) are covered with a spongy ash. These two cities show clear signs of utter destruction. The layer of ash ranges from 4-20 inches in depth. Parallel to them is a fault line where two large plates of earth are exerting great pressure on each other. This tectonic feature has caused a number of earthquakes in the region. The pressure can also force subterranean matter, such as magma, or, in this case, bitumen into the air. Geologists suggest that when the time came for the destruction of Sodom, the earth spewed forth flammable hydrocarbons high into the atmosphere. These were ignited by lightening or some other natural source and the flaming debris fell back to earth. According to the Biblical narrative, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed in the hailstorm of

fire and brimstone. “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven” - Gen. 19:24. Although the archaeology may be considered by some as inconclusive. the preponderance of other scriptural evidence is overwhelming. Everything the Bible declares about the regions history is accurate when compared to secular finds & records of the time & area.

Bitumen/asphalt is lighter than most rocks, it is released from the sedimentary rocks through erosion or as it rises to the surface along faults. There are small seeps of bitumen, but no major hydrocarbon deposits. There is a McDonald's along the Israeli shore of the Dead Sea with a sign it is the lowest McDonald's on earth. The earth's crust may be sinking in that area. In the Himalayas it is yet rising. Some S. Pacific Islands are sinking as the earth's crust is not static.

The Early Bronze Age dates for Bab ed Drah and Numeira place them before the time of Abraham determined through Biblical genealogy to be c. 1800 BC. There was an ash layer found at Jericho that was burned during the Middle Bronze Age. Some armies destroyed towns by fire, including piling brush and timber against the walls. Some have described a salt formation along the Western Shore of the Dead Sea to be "Lot's Wife."

Of course the pillars of salt from a constantly evaporating salt sea could be interpreted as anything, the same as ink blots on a paper. With Israeli and Jordanian use of the Jordan River for their agricultural and domestic water supply, the Dead Sea is yet drying up. They extract potash (potassium salts) and other commercially important compounds from the brine.

In several parts of the Torah and the NT you could see why was SODOM AND GOMORRAH was destroyed. In Jude 1.7 says" Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh (HOMOSEXUAL AND LESBIAN BEHAVIOR), are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire". Also in 2 Peter 2:6,10,14 "And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly.. But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.. Having eyes full of adultery (ADULTERY), and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls".

Two times in the Torah Elohim destroyed humans in Noah's time and in Sodom's time for depravity of the laws od sexual purity. No relation with armagedom.

The sins of homosexuality, adultery and fornication are bad and God hates these sins. God also hates the sin of murder. The righteous and sinners all die in the flesh, but the righteous might go on to eternal life. Some who thought God was genocidal were in error. God may kill, but gave us Jesus as an example for what we should do. Jesus did not stone people, nor slaughter in battle. He taught and healed people.
