“Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them’” (Genesis 19:5). “Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land” (Genesis: 24-25).
The homosexuals there thought God would not punish them for sexual sins. God had blessed them with abundant waters, gardens, trees and cities. Then, on a day of the Lord, fire consumed their entire lives. Ever since that day, that location has been the lowest place on the earth, the Dead Sea. It lies 1,292 feet below sea level and has a mean depth of 1,200 feet. It is five times saltier than the ocean. No fish can exist in it. It testifies to God’s anger over such perverse sexual behavior.
Homosexuality is now legally sanctioned in America. Are we unaware of the history of the Dead Sea? Are we so foolish as to go down a road of immorality that is sure to lead to destruction? What more could God do to label a thing sinful than to create the Dead Sea out of the place where homosexuality was practiced without reservation? In response to the subject of homosexuality, all we need to say is, “Remember the Dead Sea.”
