What Really Happened At Sodom ?

 
I have seen a lot of posts stating God’s Judgment came upon Sodom and Gomorrah because of sexual sins which resulted in destruction. That is true but it is only one sin in a list of things God condemned those towns for.
 
Ezekiel 16:49-50  Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.  [50]  And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
 
The other evil activity God hated was pride, gluttoney (eating too much food) and not helping the needy. The people of those towns were arrogant and spoiled; they had everything they needed and still refused to help the poor and needy. They thought they were better than everyone else, and they did things God did not like without remorse – And so God destroyed them. Now ask yourself – what does God think of the United States?
 
The Book of Romans tells us we can be cut off from the blessings of God when we continue in a wrong direction.
 
Romans 11:14-21  If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.  [15]  For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?  [16]  For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.  [17]  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;  [18]  Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.  [19]  Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.  [20]  Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:  [21]  For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
 
Wake up church, be not afraid to declare the whole counsel of God, the Message of the Cross is the only hope this world has.
