Sinful Seniors of Sodom / San Francisco

The wicked and grievous Sin of Sodom

Sodom has the very bad reputation for its wickedness. "And the LORD said, ‘Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is grievous."(Gen. 18:20). Despite Abraham's plea for God's mercy to spare the city, not even ten righteous men could be found in Sodom, and the cities were judged by the LORD, then destroyed by "brimstone and fire." (Gen. 19:24)

Sodom was destroyed by God because its citizens were exceedingly sinful (Genesis 13:13). Ezekiel 16, which does mention their pride, also says they "committed abomination before" the Lord. Their actions at Lot's doorstep reflected that sinfulness (Genesis 19:4-11). When the men of Sodom said they wanted to "know" the messengers of God, they obviously had sexual intentions in mind. This is clear from Lot's unfortunate offer of his two daughters. Jude 7 reinforces this view as well: "As Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."

San Francisco holds many records on Homosexuality in the U.S.

 

According to Wikipaedia (Internet encyclopedia) California has the highest percentage (5.2%) of homosexual persons (1,338,164) living in one state in the U.S., and San Francisco has the highest percentage (15.4%) of gays and lesbians (94,234) living in one city in the United States of America. That makes San Francisco the Number 1 Gay City in America. This is a shameful title that no other city would like to have, but many people in San Francisco are proud of it. Recently they performed the first state recognized gay marriage in the State of California.

Gay marriages are taking place in the US state of California, as a landmark court ruling comes into effect.

California's Supreme Court ruled on May 15, 2008 that the ban on same-sex marriages was unconstitutional because it discriminated against gays.

That court ruling has now come into effect, paving the way for hundreds of gay and lesbian couples to marry over the next few days.

Octogenarians Del Martin (87) and Phyllis Lyon (84) took the first vows in San Francisco's ornate City Hall in a ceremony presided over by Mayor Gavin Newsom.

God will judge the Homosexual Community and those who support this Grievous Sin in San Francisco

Romans 1:24-32

•24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,

•25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

•26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

•27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

•28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

•29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

•30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

•31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;

•32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

No doubt you understand, that what you write here, will likely upset many people.

Nonetheless, I understand the need to sound the voice of warning. All Christians who look to the Bible for moral guidance, need to understand the seriousness of what is currently transpiring in our midst.

As Christians - this cannot be that which is tolerable, and hopefully more will become involved with elections this November in California. Once again - we have an opportunity to raise our voices, through our vote.

We need to insure that the laws are upheld in this Country and not arrogantly ignored. This should be the concern of all U.S. Citizens.

Thank you for posting this Hub.

As I am sure God will judge those who stood outside with "God Hates Fags" signs.

These two women have been together for over 50 years, I applaude them and I don't believe US law is meant to be based on religion.

Judgement will come whether the gays and lesbians want it or not. It is our responsibility to warn them Arkwriter, just as Noah did in his day.

Good hub ArkWriter. It is our duty to warn those who are lost about the judgments of God.

UW, this hub isn't about US law but about God and sin. There is a way out of judgment for those who want to get out of it.

God will indeed judge those who stand outside holding signs saying God hates Fags. God loves them also and for their souls also Jesus died on a cross at Calvary.

Hi

Recently in the UK two homosexual priests were married by a vicar who gave his blessing on the marriage.

Obviously they have no regard for the Bible.

With the plague of HIV sweeping around the world, it appears the lessons of the past were really never learned. I applaude the action taken here to sound the alarm whether or not any will heed the warning. If we were to treat AIDS the contageous disease it is, most of those participating in the parade would be quarentened like they did to the Native American during the outbreak of TB. Judgment is coming to America for the wrongs she has and is doing. There can be no forgiveness without repentance. From what we see here, most have a mind void of judgment. Woe to those whose refuge isn't in God.

People need to realize that when a person says they don't like homo-sexuality (same sex sexuality) they are not saying they don't like people. The duty of a Christian first and above all is to love one another - love everyone. Y'shua (Jesus the Messiah) said that even theives love each other, how much more should we love thoughs that hate us. If a person comes to this forum and trashes you because you are trying to help, pray for them. We are all sinners, I think relationships are beautiful, but sex does not make it beautiful, love does. And it's not "gay" gay means happy. If they are so proud of being a same sex couple, they need to call it same sex couples. Assigning other, more politically correct words only means that they are hiding behind what the truth actually is. Are they ashamed?

God loves the sinners and that is why He came to this earth as a Man to die for their sins.  God hates the sins therefore sinners must repent and turn from their wicked ways before God can save them. Christians are not here to judge homosexuals, God will do that.  The Christians' duty is to give warning of God's judgment and also to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone including the homosexuals.

The subject to homosexuality has been a serious concern even before Noah's era and the bible has in several places documented God's warning against those who indulge in it (from Genesis to Revelation). What we are confronted with today is the audacity being expressed by those who partake in this shameful act which is an evident of the perilous times that we live in today. It beats my imagination that all of nature (plants, animals, birds, etc) evidently define "couple" as male and female but some in pursuit of unnatural affection, have engaged themselves in this perversion. Without pretending to be politically correct, we xtians must shout our view from the roof tops because the burden of moral responsibility rests on our shoulders just like Ezekiel's Watchman analogy. The homosexuals are not relenting in their effort to influence the society to accept them as normal; books, movies, etc are being sponsored in their campaign to achieve their evil desire. Evil can ony prevail when good men do nothing. Today it is California, who knows how far they may go if we just overlook this "cancerous growth". We owe the future generation the needed guidance to be able to know God's dictated rights & wrongs not socially acceptables

I would like to invite you to my blog about the prophecy of the judgment of San Francisco and LA per Luke 17.

Luk 17:28

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

Luk 17:29

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Luk 17:30

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

I am a Messianic Jew living in San Francisco.

On the day I leave the city for Israel, God will destroy the wicked cities of Calif with fire and brimstone from heaven.

Maybe by using the Yellowstone Caldera that started showing signs of erupting this last Christmas.

Baruch HaShem,
