Genesis 19.1-29 - Pride and Dignity

Genesis 19.1-29 - Pride and Dignity?

Somebody’s got it wrong! The historic announcements from Western media are the total opposite of today’s text. Thousands came out for “Gay Pride Parades” in global cities in recent days. The Bible says thousands perished for such behavior in ancient Sodom. Talk shows proclaim dignity now attained through legal same-sex marriage. God uses words like ‘wicked’ and ‘perverse’ for such choices. Gay newly-weds boast of finding great joy in their beloved. Scripture says those who practice such things will find weeping and gnashing of teeth. My heart aches at this timely contrast in our Genesis expositional series. My countrymen celebrate their blatant rejection of God’s timeless principles; scorning preachers, politicians, and the public who question their ‘rights.’ “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5.20).
