But he strongly insisted, so they turned aside with him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. Before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. They then called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, so that we may have relations with them.” So Lot went out through the door to them and shut the door behind him. Then he said, “Please, my brothers, do not act so wickedly. Look, I have two daughters who have not been with a man. Please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish. Only do nothing to these men, for they have come under the shelter of my roof.” — Genesis 19:3–8

An Ancient Story—a Modern Problem

It is one of the greatest moral, spiritual, and social problems of the past several decades. I refer to sodomy in Genesis 19, wherein the city of Sodom gave its name to live in infamy in that perversion of sodomy—or as it is called today, homosexuality or the “gay lifestyle.” It has grabbed a lot of attention in light of recent events and protests.

In 1 Corinthians 6:9–11 we read: “Do not be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals, [nor others]… will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, and you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus by the Spirit of our God.”

Note that adulterers, fornicators, and homosexuals do not have any inheritance in the kingdom of God. So many today are deceived. Other biblical passages are very clear that homosexuality is a sin.

But Paul goes on to say that many of the Corinthian Christians used to practice these things and now are free. By the grace of Jesus Christ, people caught in all manner of sins, including that of sodomy, can find freedom through the Gospel.
