Sodom Gomorrah Destroyed — Man’s Sinful Nature and God’s Righteous Judgment

The Sodom Gomorrah story teaches us an important lesson because it reveals that sin spreads and destroys the lives of human beings whom God loves so much and He will, sooner or later, bring judgment on transgression and evil to rid the world of wickedness.

However, our God is merciful and just to forgive if we repent of our sins even though we have rebelled against him because of the true and pure sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Sodom Gomorrah - The Sins

The Sins of Sodom Gomorrah

These two cities were destroyed for their grave sins. In Ezekiel 16:49–50 the Almighty God, says, 49 “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.”

According to the Epistle of Jude 1:7 “Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

The following were the sins of the twin cities.

  1. Pride (arrogance)
  2. Abomination
  3. Lack of Hospitality (Malicious Hatred Toward Outsiders)
  4. Gluttony
  5. Fornication and Adultery
  6. Sexual Perversion – Departing from the course of nature, and going after that which is unnatural
  7. Lies and filthy conversations
  8. Idleness
  9. Refusing to help the poor
  10. Corruption and wickedness

These legendary biblical cities, two of the five cities of the plain, were destroyed by the Supreme Being for their wickedness and sexual immorality. Their story resembles the worldwide flood during the time of Noah when God decided to destroy all flesh on earth as His anger was provoked due to the sinful activities of humans (Genesis 6, 7, and 8).
