Lot had guests in his home one evening in the city of Sodom and the following happened: “Before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both young and old, all the people from every quarter; and they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men that came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.”
Lot refused their demand and accused them of wickedness. Little did Lot know this was the wrong thing to say to these determined people. With force and ridicule they said, “Stand back. This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and drew near to break the door.”
Lot’s guests rescued him, secured the door and blinded the homosexuals and that still did not stop them. In their blindness they still “wearied themselves to find the door” (Gen. 19:1-11). The next morning God turned Sodom, Gomorrah and the cities of the Plain into ashes and smoke (Gen. 19:27,28).
One thing that is so interesting to me in this story is the similarity in the homosexuals in Sodom and the homosexuals of today. Observe carefully the following:
The “young and old” were involved in this lifestyle in Sodom and how the gays would like to make this teaching a part of the public educational system of today. As “Gay Families” they are already talking of adopting children.
The gays of Sodom came “from every quarter.” There was no “Red Light” district where these people lived together; no living in the “closet.” They were open and brazen with their sodomy, publicly and everywhere. Seem familiar?
In Sodom they were determined to get their way. Today it is exactly the same. Then they used force. Today they are trying to do it by law. And with the current lawmakers the majority of our voters sent to Washington, they may succeed.
Finally, Lot was severely ridiculed and threatened and for what? For passing judgment on their perverted conduct and accusing them of acting “wickedly.” How much like today!
Whether in Sodom or San Francisco; whether ancient or modern, the homosexual mind and tactics have not changed.
