"Sex In The City"

And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. Genesis 19:5
 
In Genesis 19, God destroys Sodom and Gomorrah due to the extensive amount of sin and debauchery that took place in the city. If we take a look at our society today, we still have a lot of immoral behaviors taking place now that shouldn't be. But because they are happening, helps us to realize that there is nothing new under the sun (see Ecclesiastes 1:10).
 
Just as God was displeased with the behaviors exhibited back then, so is He today. We need to be mindful that though we have obtained grace and mercy through Jesus, doesn't mean we have a right to sin; regardless of what the sin may be (see Romans 6:14-15).
 
There is no one sin that is greater than another - sin is sin; wrong is wrong. Punishment will be passed down where punishment is due unless you repent. One thing that separates a Christian from a non-Christian is that a Christian doesn't practice sin. It doesn't mean they want make mistakes; it means that when they do, they repent (which means to turn away from), ask God for forgiveness, and work harder to do better. A Christian doesn't deliberately do things that they know God would not want them to do. They practice living Christ-like on a daily basis.
 
I know that there are many interpretations as to why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah; but one thing is clear is that God will not tolerate disobedience, and immorality. Anyone who chooses to live a life that is outside the standards that God has set before us, must realize that he or she will suffer consequences for their actions. God is no respecter of persons. His standard of living is for anybody. The problem is, is that not everybody chooses to live according to His Word.
 
What about you? Will you choose His way or will you continue on in yours? Whatever you decide, just know that there are consequences for living a life that is displeasing to God, just as there are benefits for living a life that is pleasing to Him.
 
 
I BESEECH you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
