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.

If it was that simple, why hasn't God destroyed similar cities? Why destroy that which is
bound to self-destruct? Abraham pleaded for the towns to be spared for the sake of the
righteous among them. He bartered with God, who willingly withheld destruction until the
righteous were no longer there. So, it was NOT their sin, but the TOTAL lack of
righteousness that caused DESTRUCTION, which is alluded to throughout scripture as the end
to everyone NOT covered with the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ!

DESTRUCTION, NOT eternal life in a perpetual place called hell. Why is it so hard to
comprehend that God is planning an END to unrighteousness, not a perpetuation of it in a
'galaxy far, far, away', throughout eternity. Eternal life is with GOD, not in some place
where torment is perpetual. When all unrighteousness is finally cast into the Lake of
Fire, ONLY the righteous remain! SCripture adamantly declares that hell is akso cast into
the Lake of Fire Rev. 20:14. A lack of understanding

regarding the difference between "mortal" beings & "immortal beings" is quite necessary
for rightly comprehending the torment ascribed to the devil & his demons (immortals) and
the destruction of sinful men (mortals). Immortals existed before man & shall exist after
his ultimate demise. They are ALL of a different order of creation - angelic beings -
capable of taking on human form, but NOT mortal beings like humanity. Study the scriptures
regarding the soul & you'll discover that

the afdter-life of the human soul is ONLY eternal if the righteousness of Christ is upon
it. All other souls shall face a judgment that leads to ONLY one destiny - the 2nd death,
from wjhich there is NO Resurrection, only final destruction.

God also told the nation of Israel that it was not because of their righteousness that
they were able to annihilate the people of Canaan, but rather because the people of canaan
were so evil. Homosexuality, murder, incest, and child sacrifice leads to complete
obliteration of civilization.

Your soul is immortal and will have an immortal body when you leave this flesh whether you
choose Jesus or no1corinthians 15 says so. Jesus said that eternal life is knowing God.
Everyone is dead and separated from God because of sin unless you repent of your sins
andput your faith in Jesus Christ alone as your Lord and Savior. Only then do you have
eternal life. Your soul will go on forever in hell with the devil and his angels, or in
heaven with God depending on what you do about Jes

Glorybound (Kevin) - I'm sorry you're still hung on your peculiar eschatolgy. Fre will
choice allows such indiscretions, but only to a point. The very scriptures you quote
clearly indicate that ONLY the soul that knows God has eternal life, NOT all souls are
given eternal life. There is an END to life = DEATH. 2nd death has no hope of resurrection
because it happens ONLY to those ALREADY judged as eternally lost - which is a destiny
that ends in destruction, NOT an alternative life.

Eventually EVEN hell & all its occupants is destined to be cast into the LAke of Fire.
There is no scripture that teaches that the Lake of Fire continues for all eternity, as
does life with God for true believers. I know its been a populat doctrine among many
professing denominations, but scripture has been misquoted & misinterpreted where those
dogmas claim valid support. DEEPER research reveals that ignoring the END of Judaism (due
to their rejection of Messiah) is what Jesus was actually

referring to in most eschatological passages declared as the END of this physical world.
Ancient mysticisms combined with mythologies are the basis of most theories about hell.
Read the articles posted on my blog & research their claims yourself before concluding
things to come as sound doctrine to the detriment of others hoping to discover truth.

into believing seducing spirits & multiple wifes. That I DO believe the Bible & heeded its
admonitions to assist fellow belivers is precisely why I counseled you. " Brethren, if any

sinner from the error of his way shall

empathy for your plight & compassion for your need, why be so obstinate with someone
merely trying to help you? Especially after all you do know about me, you forget so easily
what trouble God rescued you from?
