Follow God's Word


In response to the Nov. 20 editorial (“The hour is late and the situation is desperate”) the men of Sodom (Gen 19:4-9), like some today in California, Massachusetts, and elsewhere in America, also had an open agenda pushing sodomy (modernly referred to as “homosexuality”) as a public way of life. They were very adamant in their demands, and got extremely upset when Lot tried to correct them: “Please, my brothers, do not act wickedly!” (v. 7)

The Bible says that they almost broke Lot’s door down and openly threatened Lot with bodily harm (v .9). They were not gay, they were furious! Sounds like Hollywood, doesn’t it?

The angels of God ordered Lot to leave Sodom with his entire family, because “the Lord has sent us to destroy it” (v. 13) Our God is very much aware of the spiritual battle going on right now for the soul and future of this country. Sodomy is wickedness! It has always been wicked and will always be wicked!

Will we as Southern Baptists proclaim and follow God’s Word no matter what? Let’s pray and work hard to win the people of this nation to Jesus, before the angels come.

You are right! The hour is late and the situation is desperate. But Jesus is the light! Jesus said, “Walk while you have the light, that darkness may not overtake you” (John 12:35).
