In ancient biblical times we learn of two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, often referred to jointly, which were both known for the sexual promiscuousness and perversions, including homosexuality. The term ‘sodomy’ comes from the name of the ancient city, famed for men having anal sex with other men. The perversion got so bad in those two cities, that God destroyed them both and everyone in them.
In the 1960s America began trodding down the road to become a nation like Sodom and Gomorrah. The hippie movement brought ‘free love’ meaning open nudity and sexual relations before and outside of marriage. During the height of the Vietnam War, the familiar protest line was ‘make love, not war’.
In August 1969, over 400,000 people gathered in Bethel, White Lake, New York for 4 days of rock concerts, drugs and sex. Parts of the audience turned the event into a giant drug induced orgy.
Since then, the concept of promiscuous sex in America continued. Many couples believed it was okay to live together before getting married. Adultery also began to become less of a social taboo and more of a socially acceptable way of life.
Also in the 1960s, adult magazines with nudity became openly popular, beginning with Playboy magazine, followed by a host of others. Women didn’t want to be left out and some began publishing their own magazines with male nudity.
Sadly, these magazines with male nudity didn’t only attract lusting women, but a growing number of homosexual men as well.
By the turn of the 21st century, homosexuals began ‘coming out’ and making their lifestyles known. They began pushing for special rights and under the administration of Barack Obama and his Democratic minions, the LGBT movement rose to prominence and began winning those special rights. In fact, the special rights they won superseded the rights of the majority of normal Americans, but that didn’t matter to them or to Obama and the Democrats.
Under the Obama administration, traditional marriage, one of the primary foundations our nation was build upon, was attacked and destroyed. The Defense of Marriage Act was ruled unconstitutional and the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that marriage was no longer defined as one man and one woman, fulfilling the Apostle Paul’s warning of God’s judgement on a nation that embraced such debauchery and sinful lifestyles. Three times in Romans 1:18-32, we are told that as part of God’s judgement, He turned the people over to their lusts and abominations and that’s exactly what we are experiencing today.
But this wasn’t enough for these sinful perverts. They wanted more, demanded more and are getting more. LGBT activists began lobbying politicians at the local, state and federal levels for special protections. Some states passed laws preventing professional counselors, pastors and psychologists from helping a gender confused person to leave the LGBT lifestyle and go straight.
The New York City Council just took action that can be nothing more another giant step towards turning our nation into Sodom and Gomorrah. By a vote of 43-2, they passed an ordinance that bans all counselors from trying to help gender confused children or adults to go straight. Even if a gender confused individual comes to them for help, they are not allowed to them turn away from their LGBT ways of life. I guess it’s okay if they help them turn to the dark side of sin, but it’s not okay to help them turn away from the dark side, even if they ask for help to do that.
When God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, He did so with fire and brimstone from above and not a sole was spared. When God brought his judgement on nations for their sins and turning away from Him, his judgement affected everyone in the nation, even the righteous. Read what happened to Daniel and his friends when God allowed Babylon to capture the nation. Even though Daniel and his friends remained faithful to God, they were still taken into captivity. They were thrown in the fire and into a lion’s den, neither of which they were deserving of.
Is this about to happen here in America? Are we any different than Sodom and Gomorrah? Are we on the verge of God’s wrath and destruction? Could it be that America’s judgement will be fire and brimstone in the form of nuclear weapons? God has often used secular nations to punish a nation that turns away from Him, and it could well happen to America very soon, thanks to anti-God fools like the New York City Council.
