Christians particularly condemn those sins they’re least likely to commit. Those sins are given special attention.
Homosexuality for example.
Certain terms have been applied to homosexuality and homosexuals to describe how sinful they are: such as “sodomy” and sodomite”. What could more blatantly illustrate their depravity considering God destroyed the city of Sodom because of its homosexual associations?
Or did He?
Of course He destroyed Sodom and we are told God destroyed it because of its sin – but was homosexuality the primary sin that moved God to destroy that city?
The ONLY place in scripture where we are told specifically WHAT Sodom’s sin was is in Ezekiel 16
Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen
OUCH! ” …arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy… ”
That hits much closer to home than the common idea that homosexuality in Sodom specifically caused God to destroy the city.
It covers areas of sin that Christians are NOT so keen to address.
