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.”
