    Gods commandments are simple read Romans obedience unto righteousness ( Niveneah) or sin unto death(sodom) God woudlve spared sodom but found no obedience unto righteousness apart from lot

    Christian Powell; What is the difference between Sodom and Nineveh? and why was one shown mercy and the other destroyed? The men of Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah: God's pronouncement of imminent destruction convicted them of their sins, and they responded appropriately. Although Sodom had Lot living among them, there wasn't one person who took it to heart. Read Ezekiel 16:49-50
  • Christian powell
    The story of Jonah is clearly demonstrate Gods love to humanity, hi desire to save us and are not willing that we perish by his judgement. with this being the case, a question of thought comes to mind. what is the difference between Nineveh and Sodom and Gomorrah. How dose one explain Gods mercy for one but destruction for the other, his will to save one and destroy the other.

    In verse 9 I really appreciate how Jonah openly confessed his wrong. He took responsibility for his wrong actions.
  • When we commit sin, there is nothing that we can do to justify the sin or pervert God's judgment other than to repent of it.
