25. SODOM AND GOMORRAH (THE SINS)


  
Lot, entertaining Angels in his house, is delivered from Sodom, which is destroyed: his wife for looking back is turned into a statue of salt.
Genesis 19:1-13 And the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of the city. And seeing them, he rose up and went to meet them: and worshiped prostrate to the ground, And said: I beseech you, my lords, turn in to the house of your servant, and lodge there: wash your feet, and in the morning you shall go on your way. And they said: No, but we will abide in the street. He pressed them very much to turn in unto him: and when they were come into his house, he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread and they ate: But before they went to bed, the men of the city beset the house both young and old, all the people together. And they called Lot, and said to himWhere are the men that came in to thee at night? bring them out hither that we may know them: Lot went out to them, and shut the door after him, and said: Do not so, I beseech you, my brethren, do not commit this evil. I have two daughters who as yet have not known man: I will bring them out to you, and abuse you them as it shall please you, so that you do no evil to these men, because they are come in under the shadow of my roof. But they said: Get thee back thither. And again: Thou camest in, said they, as a, stranger, was it to be a judge? therefore we will afflict thee more than them. And they pressed very violently upon Lot: and they were even at the point of breaking open the doors. And behold the men put out their hand, and drew in Lot unto them, and shut the door: And them that were without, they struck with blindness from the least to the greatest, so that they could not find the door. And they said to Lot: Hast thou here any of thine? son in law, or sons, or daughters, all that are thine bring them out of this city: For we will destroy this place, because their cry is grown loud before the Lord, who hath sent us to destroy them.




Homosexuality in the ancient world

Homosexuality is generally defined as sexual interest in and attraction to members of one's own sex. In different eras, cultures, and religions, homosexual behavior has been variously approved, tolerated, punished, or banned.
  
Homosexuality was not uncommon in ancient cultures, though the forms and views of homosexual behavior vary significantly. In most of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, both the subject and the behavior are considered taboo, with some slight exception made in urban areas.
   
Homosexuality in the world's religions
 
The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans were generally accepting of homosexual behavior within certain contexts. Hinduism and Buddhism tend to view homosexuality primarily from the standp
oint of its karmic effects, with varying conclusions.

JewishChristianSikh and Muslim cultures have generally perceived homosexual behavior as sinful. Many Jewish and Christian leaders, however, have gone to great lengths to make clear that it is the homosexual acts and not the homosexual individuals or their "orientation" that is condemned.

Some liberal strands of both mainstream Protestant Christianity and Reform Judaism advocate, on theological as well as social grounds, the full acceptance of homosexuals and their relationships.

Homosexuality and Christianity
 
Christian views on homosexuality sometimes differ between denominations, but they are more commonly seen between liberal and conservative branches of each denomination. As with many Christian debates on ethical issues, the discussion hinges on how the Bible ought to be interpreted, taking into account the historical context and the meaning of specific words.


The article provides HERE information on what the Bible says about homosexuality (which is usually central in debates over the issue), historical Christian views of homosexuality, and a list of modern Christian views on homosexuality.

Homosexuality and the Bible

The Bible is the Christian sacred text, regarded as the ultimate authority by all denominations. It consists of the Old Testament (roughly equivalent to the Jewish Tanakh) and the New Testament. While the New Testament is the specifically Christian part of the Bible, both parts are regarded as equally authoritative. 
  
Homosexuality and Islam
 
In Islam, homosexuality is condemned in the story of Lot's people in the Qur'an (15:73; 26:165) and in the last address of the Prophet Muhammad. However, attraction of men to beautiful male youths has been a part of the culture of some Islamic societies and the attraction is not generally condemned in itself.
 
With regard to lesbian homosexuality, some have argued that since penetration is not involved, female homosexual acts should be less severely punished. Shari'a (Islamic law) is most concerned with public behavior and outwards, so there is no strong condemnation of homosexuality if it is not displayed in public

Biblically Abomination is the word used to describe how God abhor sex between man and another man and for a woman to have sex with another woman. This kind of sex is not natural but very un-natural. This lust for the same sex is described as filthy and therefore is an abomination in the eyes of God. In the ancient times these perverts are put to death but in this modern times, they are accepted by many in the guise of civil and human rights though many more God's commandments-abiding Christians are against it. The gay rights advocates have use this rights to pervert God's law on nature. Gay advocates are winning but in the end of their days, unrepentant sinners will be blotted out in the Book of Life and therefore will be cast down into hell eternal. It is not evil to be gay but to practice homosexuality and have sex with the same kind is the sin that will lead homosexuals to eternal damnation in hell. 
    
Why risk burning in hell for eternity with just few hours of physical pleasure? Is it worth to find out whether hell is real? It is sad to say sinners and fornicators doesn't care for they are enjoying their worldly pleasure life can give right now. THERE IS NO SECOND CHANCE AFTERLIFE IN HELL. Do not deprive yourself of heavenly joy eternal for a moment of pleasure.

The sins of homosexuality is truly biblical and they are firmly written accordingly for man to take heed. Man has been warned that homosexuality is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination.

Before modern times, homosexuals are put to death thus what exactly happened in Sodom and Gomorrah. But the spiritual meaning of this verse is that if a man lives a perverted life as a habitual homosexual pervert, it will be very hard for him to live a life with God and by it he will die spiritually by the sin that God abhor so much and therefore afterlife he will be thrown into the lake of fire to suffer in eternity for no man can enjoy life in heaven if he had lived a life in the dark. Leviticus 20:13 If any one lie with a man as with a woman, both have committed an abomination, let them be put to death: their blood be upon them.

Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.

1 Tim 1:10 [CEV] The Law was written for people who are sexual perverts or who live as homosexuals or are kidnappers or liars or won’t tell the truth in court. It is for anything else that opposes the correct teaching. This is written not for the righteous but for the perverts, fornicators and corruptors so that they may earn the wages of their sins.


Sodom and Gomorrah were cities mentioned in the Book of Genesis and throughout the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and Deuterocanonical sources, as well as the Qur'an, hadith and tafsir. According to the Torah, the kingdoms of Sodom and Gomorrah were allied with the cities of Admah, Zeboim and Bela. These five cities, also known as the "cities of the plain", were situated on the Jordan River plain in the southern region of the land of Canaan. The plain — which corresponds to the area just north of the modern day Dead Sea) — was compared to the garden of Eden [Gen.13:10] as being a land well-watered and green, suitable for grazing livestock. Whether or not they ever existed is disputed by archaeologists.

Divine judgment by God was then passed upon Sodom and Gomorrah along with two other neighboring cities that were completely consumed by fire and brimstone. Neighboring Zoar (Bela) was the only city to be spared during that day of judgment.[Deut.29:23][Gen.10:19] 

In Abrahamic religions, Sodom and Gomorrah have become synonymous with impenitent sin, and their fall with a proverbial manifestation of God's wrath. [Jude 1:7] Sodom and Gomorrah have been used as metaphors for vice and homosexuality viewed as a deviation. (Deviation in God's plan of Salvation is called sin.)

The story has therefore given rise to words in several languages, including the English word sodomy, used in sodomy laws to describe a sexual "crime against nature" consisting of anal and/or oral sex, either homosexual or heterosexual. Some highly conservative Islamic societies incorporate punishments associated with Sodom and Gomorrah into sharia law
[Romans 1:26] For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. [27] And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. [28]And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient[29] Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, [30]Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
[26] God delivered them up: Not by being author of their sins, but by withdrawing his grace, and so permitting them, in punishment of their pride, to fall into those shameful sins.
In verse 26, lesbianism is shameful in God's eyes. Verse 27 talks about men committing lustful acts with men. Both verses 26 & 27 are about the sinfulness of the act of homosexuality which he condemns and abhors the most. 
It is not sinful to be gay and to love but beyond that with the act of lustfulness and fornications with same sex male or female is. This is not God's plan to create homosexuals but about creating man and woman for each other.
Who were the Sodomites? What is the meaning of the term "sodomite"?
 
According to Unger's Bible Dictionary, the people of the area worshipped fertility gods, chief among them were Baal/Ashtoreth (Astarte, Asherah - she had many names). This was the female goddess of war and fertility, sensual love and maternity. "She and her colleagues specialized in sex and war and her shrines were temples of legalized vice" (Unger, p. 412).

Her worship practices were basically orgies, with worshippers required to have sex with the priests and priestesses. The priests or male prostitutes, according to Unger, who were consecrated to her cult "were styled qedishim, 'sodomites
' (Thou shalt not offer the hire of a strumpet, nor the price of a dog, in the house of the Lord thy God, whatsoever it be that thou hast vowed: because both these are an abomination to the Lord thy God. Deuteronomy 23:18).
Is this God's Plan and Will? 
Sodom and Gomorrah
Is this pleasing in God's eyes?

What is ODD? Two fathers without a mother.
And what are the basic rights of children?
To have a loving Father and Mother around them.
There is a pretty good chance the child is a boy not a girl.
What will the implications be of what to happen to a man's soul when this grievous sin an abomination against the very words of Jesus: "What I abhor the most is man to man and woman to woman" (this is not in the bible - but according to oral tradition) is knowingly committed? 

If one dies while still under the state of sin (the Sodom sin), which will be absolute, heaven or hell as wages for such sin? God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah - will God still do it? God may not destroy cities, but will he destroy instead the homosexuals who knowingly offend our Lord?
         
The Evil That Men Do!

Homosexuality Is A Sinful Choice, Not Genetic

Janet Boynes: She lived a Homosexual lifestyle for 14 years until 
an encounter in a grocery store parking lot led her back.


Read below and understand that the men of Sodom did want to KNOW Lot's visitors (the angels).... meaning to have sex with them (man to man). God is God of Mercy and Justice but God is not a changeable God who commands something now and changes them later. God will never ever changed His Commandments so modern day gays and their ways will be acceptable and justified. This is Satan's way of perverting mankind but God will not allow perversions and corruptions. God created woman for man and from man he created man's partner for life - a woman. God did not take Adam's rib to create another man to be his partner and neither did God create a woman first then took her rib to create another woman to be her partner. This was never so. Yet gays and gay supporters are happy to do the opposite of God's will. The gay movement does this in the guise of human rights. The politicians support them too for political reason not according to God's will.     

 Who is your father and who is your mother?


And this how the child should grow?
Isaiah 3:4 And I will give 
children to be their princes, 
and the effeminate 
shall rule over them.
Genesis 1:27 And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. 

Marriages between man and a woman is holy, so is marriages between man and another man or a woman to another woman is holy? Or is it an abomination in the eyes of God. 

Birds of the same feathers flock together.

Man and wife was created for the purpose of procreation. So how can gay marriages pro-create? In God adapting an orphan child or giving a home to unwanted or homeless children is pleasing in His eyes.   

To have additional member to a union (gay married couple) the couple have to adopt a child. But when the adopted children grow somehow they will be asked by their classmates and friends, "who is your father and who is your mother?" How do you think a child will feel? Will the child grow wholly and happy or will it be otherwise? Wouldn't it be destructive and traumatic for children to grow in an unholy type of family? If you are the child how would you feel? 

Proponents and gay-marriage advocates, think about this and honestly ask yourselves are you going to do this according to God's will or according to your own agenda? 

Homosexuality becomes sinful only when one chooses to be sinful. Accordingly being a gay is never a sin, the practice of homosexual acts is. It becomes sinful only when a gay partners with another man or woman of the same sex and acts like husband and wife. This is what God abhors the most.
Satan will always undermine all what God has created. God's righteousness given to mankind is being opposed by Satan through wickedness and sinfulness. 

And man as advocate of Satan is now making it lawful for man and man and a woman to woman to live as husband and wife and practice homosexuality. The Catholic Church will never allow such kind of unholy marriage to be done within its churches in obedience to God's commandment and will. 

"And they called Lot, and said to him: Where are the men that came in to thee at night? bring them out hither that we may know them:" Genesis 19:5 "For as the woman is of the man, so also is the man by the woman: but all things of God." 1 Corinthians 11:12

The men of Sodom wanted Lot to hand them the angels (disguised as men) so they will know (have sex) them. In biblical term, "know" is "sex". 


Excommunicated Priest Exposes the New World Order.. 3/3 Must see!

After this speech O'Conner was ORDERED to under go a psychological evaluation and then later dismissed from the church!


Effeminacy describes traits in a human male that are more often associated with feminine nature, behaviour, mannerisms, style or gender roles rather than masculine nature, behaviour, mannerisms, style or roles.

It is a term frequently applied to womanly behavior, demeanor, style and appearance displayed by a male, typically used implying criticism or ridicule of this behaviour (as opposed to, for example, merely describing a male as feminine, which can be non-judgmental). The term effeminate is most often used by people who subscribe to the widespread view that males should display masculine traits and behaviours. Generally, the description is applied to individuals, but may be used to describe entire societies as an inflammatory allegation.

Until the modern period, "effeminacy" in the Western tradition referred to a complicated intersection of both social (or civic) and sexual identities typically associated with females.

The ancient Greeks, for example, described whole societies as effeminate (malakia) if they were characterized by a slavish, deferential, or autocratic political culture. Here, it was the form of sexual relationships, but not the fact of homosexual relations (which were not uncommon among Greek male citizens) that was critical to the sexual dimension of the term. And among early modern partisans of the republican tradition, the term might be applied to those who were preoccupied with "womanly" concerns, such as the accouterments of appearance, which were often associated with trappings of nobility or aristocratic aspirations, such ostentatious dress, decadence in consumption habits, and rigid adherence to the proprieties or manners of social hierarchy. The reach of this "civic" understanding may be best illustrated in the work of early feminist and republican thinkers such as Mary Wollstonecraft, who described as "effeminate" the behavior of women who refused to embrace a more active presence in public life.

Since the 18th century, the civic dimension of gender identity has been eclipsed by the sexual dimension of gender identity, and today effeminacy has often been considered a vice, indicative of other negative character traits and often involving a pejorative insinuation of homosexual tendencies in men. In other societies, by contrast, effeminate males may be considered a distinct human gender (third gender), and may have a special social function, as is the case of Two-Spirits in some Native American groups. Furthermore, some see effeminacy to be a characteristic or trait, part of a particular person's gender role and in this sense would not be considered a vice or indicative of any other characteristics. An effeminate male is similar to a fop or a dandy, though these tend to be archaic identities that are taken on by the individual rather than insulting labels.


1 Kings 14:24 There were also the effeminate in the land, and they did according to all the abominations of the people whom the Lord had destroyed before the face of the children of Israel.

1 Kings 15:12 And he took away the effeminate out of the land, and he removed all the filth of the idols, which his fathers had made.
               
1 Kings 22:47 And the remnant also of the effeminate, who remained in the days of Asa his father, he took out of the land.

2 Kings 23:7 He destroyed also the pavilions of the effeminate, which were in the house of the Lord, for which the women wove as it were little dwellings for the grove.

Job 36:14 Their soul shall die in a storm, and their life among the effeminate.

Proverbs 18:8 The words of the double tongued are as if they were harmless: and they reach even to the inner parts of the bowels. Fear casteth down the slothful: and the souls of the effeminate shall be hungry.

Hosea 4:14 I will not visit upon your daughters when they shall commit fornication, and upon your spouses when they shall commit adultery: because themselves conversed with harlots, and offered sacrifice with the effeminate, and the people that doth not understand shall be beaten.

1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.

Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman shall not be clothed with man' s apparel, neither shall a man use woman' s apparel: for he that doeth these things is abominable before God. A man is never a woman nor a woman a man for it is abominable in the eyes of God. How good is it to lust and enjoy a moment of pleasure only to lose salvation and the chance to be with God thru eternity? Is it worth it?

The purpose of this blog site is to apostolate and provide the way of the cross. There is no other way and the only option - help save anyone from eternal damnation of hell.
