    It is very clear that the cities were wicked and a demonstration of that wickedness was the sexual perversions of the men of the city of Sodom. Lot vexed his soul and lost the majority of his family.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    Yes thats correct but lot was nothing compared to the people of SODOM which is why the Lord spared them. all the saints in the bible still had wicked flesh like us they were not sinlessly perfect. ABRAHAM was an idolator he was from bablyon. ONLY GOD can make you righteous works salvation is self righteous. the only man that IS self righteous is THE LORD JESUS
  • Rockpicker John
    Lot was prepared to give his own children to be raped. A good man then? I think not. Read Ezekiel on the sin of Sodom.
  • BSP
    Verse 3: Lot showed hospitality to the angels. Lot knew how corrupt the city was and he made sure he took the angles into his house to provide for them and to protect them.
